> I have this general idea that it's asking for help on specific problems, rather than the advice a trainee gets on how to handle their cases but I'm not sure if that's right. Is this something all therapists do or just an ideal? Something beginners do? Is there any obligation to inform the patient (client - whatever) that there is now a third party involved in the "therapeutic relationship"? I'd appreciate any information that all of you can give me.

I asked my therapist about that once and she said that she gets together with someone once a month to discuss her cases with. She said she doesn't go into specifics, but it's mostly just running it by someone else. She's not new at this. She's been doing it for more than 20 years, so it's not that she's new. She didn't volunteer this information to me, but didn't hesitate to tell me when I asked. She's proven herself to be ethical, so I'm guessing that she's not required to disclose that information. I was surprised recently to see the person she meets with. He was young, looked like he could have been 17, though I'm sure he was at least 25. I just happened to see her come out of one of the rooms with this young man carrying a stack of files. I could have been mistaken, but I'm sure that's who he was.
