Clients receiving clinical services through the Department of Veterans Affairs do not leave their faith at the door simply because they are receiving treatment at a federal facility. Therefore, clinicians need to be well-versed in how to ethically integrate the faith of the client into treatment. The focus of this presentation will be on the integration of the Christian faith.
