Thanks for clarifying. I tend to have similar views and caught the gist of what you meant, but your explanation made clearer which parts of the meaning I'd assumed you truly intended.

My therepist works from a primary CBT orientation, and while I read many posts here about transference and countertransference and all that I don't think I'm personally missing anything by not having had much cause to investigate the client-therapist relationship in great detail. It's not that we never talked at all about where certain feelings come from, or about the therapy relationship between us. But the focus has been very practical and concrete. For instance, we made use of our relationship in therapy as a safe ground for me to practice things like making eye contact - a setting where anxiety about the behavior was present, but not overwhelming, in part because of the boundaries our relationship imposes.

But... on any discussion board, the topics of discussion are largely determined by the topics the most active people are most passionate about. This is no different. I participate when and where I feel I have something to contribute. I don't think it can be helped much if one introduces certain topics and wither away from neglect. Keep trying and eventually perhaps more like-minded people will feel at home.
