This paper comprises an analysis of selected psychotherapeutically relevant aspects of Mormonism, the religion of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Consideration is given to beliefs about religion, one's relationship to God, marriage and sexuality, grace and works, and personal inspiration, and the relevance of these beliefs for counseling and psychotherapy with Latter-day Saint clients. In addition, this paper considers the therapeutic relevance of religious history, demographics, community structure and policy, life style, and characteristic gender issues arising from the social structure.
