Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for an Asian client showed the need to consider sociocultural factors and individual aspects in the therapeutic process. The authors describe therapy sessions of a client of Chinese origin who showed difficulties in family and professional relationships related to hostility. It was tended to fit in the self-affirmation training with some characteristics of a client from Chinese background living in a Western-style society. Cultural particularities and the applicability of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy were considered and discussed.
