> I think that what boards are interested in hearing about is gross malpractice, unethical behavior, and incompetence,not just poor, misguided, underinformed practice. And as you may know, it's so hard to get a board to take action even when a therapist propositions a client, even when a therapist sleeps with a client, that I doubt that you would get any satisfaction.

Actually, I wasn't aware of any of this (or, I forgot, because I think you cover this in your book), although none of it surprises me and it's good to know. I don't think I will consider pursuing any such options. But I'm really glad I asked and I appreciate your candor.

>I'm not sure I have all the facts: Did your therapist actually have a dual relationship with you? Was it more a matter of fuzzy boundaries? Did she terminate you without warning and fail to refer you to another therapist? What exactly would you report?

You definitely don't have *all* the facts but I think I gave you the basic idea and yes, it was mostly a matter of poor boundaries and bad therapy. I think the most egregious thing was the CD. And no, she did *not* terminate me -- I left *her*. So I guess it would be rather upsetting and not productive to report any of it. You're right that there ought to be some way to warn other potential clients.
