For the civilian therapist, working with military clients can be an adjustment. The lack of familiarity with military culture can cause the client to disengage, possibly damaging the burgeoning relationship. It is important that the civilian therapist make the effort to learn about the military structure to implement proper interventions. With this in mind, Relational-Cultural Theory can be used in order to put emphasis on understanding the military client's worldview and strengthening the therapeutic alliance.
