This chapter provides a framework for understanding social class and psychotherapy process that is informed by the empirical and theoretical literature to date. We define social class along a financial continuum, specifically, the extent to which a person has financial resources to access basic human rights (as defined by the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights) and pursue a healthy quality of life. We offer a framework to review and organize the literature on social class and psychotherapy process that includes the following primary factors: (1) therapist contributions, (2) client contributions, (3) dyadic contributions, and (4) systemic contributions. Education and training implications are provided.

Keywords: psychotherapy process; social class; therapist contributions; client contributions; client attributes; obstacles; dyadic contributions; systemic contributions; education; training
