ABSTRACT
A short clinical vignette is discussed in terms of the theoretical concepts of intrinsic and extrinsic religious orientations (G.W. Allport & J.M. Ross, 1967) faith development (J.W. Fowler, 1981), and transcendence (W. James, 1936). The author discusses the therapeutic value of a client's religious orientation, faith development, and transcendence in helping to promote constructive change.
