"This could never happen to me." Beware, it happens to many.
Psychotherapy involves patient and therapist in intimate exchange for extended periods of time. Few friendships or even family relationships involve disclosure of such personal feelings and experiences. This can sometimes be misinterpreted by patients and even therapists as friendship or romance. Boundaries can become blurred, lines can be crossed and lives can be ruined .
This session will be devoted to a short presentation regarding boundary crossings and violations, followed by open discussion of this important issue.
