Sexuality, ethnocultural, and religious beliefs are not uncommon issues presented by clients in psychotherapy either as a focus of or a part of their concerns. Each issue is provocative to both therapist and client and brings particular therapeutic and ethical challenges to the work. It is frequently presumed that these beliefs naturally conflict with one another, although clearly they do not conflict for a great many people. There are clients, however, who feel that their sexual identities, desires, and/or behavior and their religious or cultural beliefs are incompatible and irreconcilable. Such clients may present us with a range of challenges, including the appropriate ethical behavior of the therapist. This workshop will explore a range of ethical dilemmas that confront therapists in the treatment of clients whose religious beliefs and sexual identities, desires, and/or behaviors conflict in ways that are problematic for them.
