I think it is person by person and some "disciplines" are more open to it than others. I think the primary rule is how appropriate the gift is (too expensive, too suggestive, too personal) and what the expectation of the client giving it is. If it is something to be displayed to basically establish some proprietary ownership of the therapist's office (see, I'M his favorite!) then, it wouldn't be appropriate.

I too want THE rule book. I've said it a lot. I ask my therapist for it all the time because I want to get an "A" in therapy. He always just grabs books off the shelf and starts pitching them on the floor: Freud, Kohut, Rogers, etc. And says, these guys can't even agree, so just pick one. I tell him WOMEN wouldn't have set things up like this...
