The calculation of the spectral line broadening of lithium-like ions is presented. The motivation for these calculations is to extend present theoretical calculations to more complex atomic structures and provide further diagnostic possibilities. The profiles of Li I, Ti XX and Br XXXIII are shown as a representative sampling of the possible effects which can occur. The calculations are performed for all level 2 to level 3 and 4 transitions, with dipole-forbidden and overlapping components fully taken into account.
