The purpose of this study was to clarify and accurately investigate specific Buddhist concepts utilized by mental health clinicians professing to integrate Buddhist ideology into clinical practice. A theoretical structure was sought in order to organize and conceptualize these concepts, thus providing an accessible clinical model that informs practitioners of these methods. Additionally, information is provided regarding how psychologists identify and resolve apparent philosophical differences in conceptualization and treatment from a Buddhist perspective with the ethical and professional norms of clinical psychology.
