Cognitive therapy as espoused by A. T. Beck (A. T. Beck, Rush, Shaw, & Emery, 1979) is increasingly used as a therapeutic modality and applied to a variety of cultural groups throughout the world. However, the majority of the literature on empirical and clinical practice has been focused on the use of cognitive therapy for Western cultures. In this article, we discuss Chinese patients’ adherence to therapy homework assignments in terms of Chinese cultural values and practices, their customary problem-solving process, and other traditional beliefs. Through the use of a case study, we illustrate how some of these culturally specific beliefs can influence the process of integrating homework assignments into the course of therapy. This resource on supervising practitioners’ treatment of Chinese patients with cognitive behavior therapy is offered as a contribution to the emerging literature on CBT for non-Western cultures.
