This paper analyzes a therapy session with a social worker. It speaks of the social worker’s apparent bias towards one of the patients, and criticizes other practices of the social worker.

It also brings in the problem of cross-cultural therapeutic relationships.
“In seeking to find the best way to work with a patient, sometimes the most important decision that must be made is in selecting the most appropriate framework within with to analyze and treat that patient. This selection must be based both upon the therapists own overarching beliefs on which strategies are in general most helpful and most ethical as well as the particular needs of the patient at hand. This usually requires extending a high degree of empathy to the client; however when working with more than one client this can prove problematic as was the case here.”
