Family Therapy in Iran: A Case Study of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Khodayarifard, Mohammad; McClenon, James
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v39 n2 p78-89 Apr 2011
Iranian clinical psychologists have devised family therapy methods that use cognitive behavior models that ft with their collectivist Islamic culture. The authors review Islamic-based strategies and describe family therapy with a culturally specific case of childhood obsessive-compulsive disorder. Family therapy, adapted to integrated, religious-based cognitive behavior therapy, seems appropriate for clients who are served in Iran.
