Research indicates that each of us find various rituals, customs and traditions important in our sense of identity. Clients appear for therapy from a variety of backgrounds and may also hold these various elements important to their lives. For therapists learning to ask further about these areas and incorporate them into treatment may aid in building rapport as well as providing culturally appropriate treatment. It is also important for therapists to assess when these elements may be a source of shame or ambivalence for the client and how to process this as part of the client's experience. Therapists learning to take care with stereotypes is also an important part of learning when to appropriately incorporate rituals, customs and traditions into treatment in order to not perpetuate micro aggressions and to have better treatment outcome.
