Just an observation, here. One goal of therapy, IMO, is to become more honest with ourselves and others.
Yet, what's wrong with this picture? How many people's former T's won't just come right out and say "I don't want to encourage too much dependence, because I can't be available to you as a true therapist, since we have terminated." Just put the whole ethics thing out on the table! We're not stupid, we could "get it" if only "it" was spelled out for us from the T's point of view!
Also--I'd suspected about the lack of training in regard to termination. Many T's seem to be way undertrained in the "real" issues. Kinda like overtraining a combat medic with regard to viruses, dental hygiene, and sports injuries, while failing to mention that there could be some bullets flying around doing damage!
