Incorporating Nonmainstream Spirituality into CBT for Anxiety: A Case Study
Generalized anxiety disorder is common in adults, and cognitive-behavior therapy has demonstrated positive outcomes. Recent approaches have considered the potential benefit of incorporating religion and spirituality into cognitive-behavioral therapy for generalized anxiety disorder, with positive effects. Although the model for this treatment allows flexibility with regard to religious and/or spiritual beliefs and behaviors, all pilot work to date has been conducted with participants who describe themselves as Christians. The current case study examines the flexibility and utility of this treatment with the incorporation of nontraditional religious and spiritual beliefs and behaviors (i.e., Unitarian Universalism).
