Authority, Psychotherapy and the Authority of the Therapist in the Religious Haredi Community.

This article considers the meaning and significance of authority, and its relevance to the transference process, within the framework of psychotherapy in the orthodox Jewish (Haredi) community in Israel. In this community, deeply-rooted habits of obedience to the commandments of the Torah and the authority of the Rabbi are integral to maintaining an orthodox way of life. Clinical vignettes with Haredi patients are presented to illustrate the complexities that arise when both patient and therapist belong to the orthodox community, and highlight the authority-related issues that are central to the therapy. This combination of factors requires a sensitive and finely-tuned approach which will enable the therapist to maintain the treatment framework while still accommodating the orthodox way of life.

ConclusionsFurther research is required to refine currently existing measures and develop new measures for key NICE ‐recommended models of therapy.Practitioner points Assessment and improvement of therapist competence is key to provision of high ‐quality psychotherapeutic interventions. This review shows there are few measures of competence in relational therapy models and several NICE‐recommended models do not have corresponding competence measures.
