The workshop approaches this topic as a matter of cultural sensitivity and cultural competence. The goal is to help clinical supervisors develop a keener awareness of possible issues of therapist’s counter-transference and boundaries in cases where a client’s presenting concern or underlying problem is tied to issues of faith.
