Cultural Conditions of Therapy


Singh, Jasvinder and Tudor, Keith


Drawing on the relevant literature and the authors' own experience and work, this article discusses therapy in the context of culture. Culture is defined and distinguished from race and the implications of cultural variables discussed in relation to the practice of therapy as well as the training of therapists. Rogers's (1957/1990b, 1959) six conditions of therapeutic personality change are developed from a cultural perspective.
