This paper explores the issues that arise when psychotherapists and patients do not share a common value system. Using three case studies of ultra-Orthodox Jewish patients who hold religious values and beliefs, the paper illustrataes and defines a strategy of 'value-sensitive therapy.' It argues for treating patients without demeaning or discounting their values and beliefs.
