> Unfortunately, terminating clients is not considered unethical as long as you give them referrals. In fact I've read therapy books that advise therapists to terminate clients when they don't think they're being helpful.

Hi Dinah. I've been reading you for so long it's kinda neat to actually be talking to you.

I didn't mean that being terminated 'properly' was unethical. Of course there are situations where it is necessary. But terminating a patient while she is crisis, in an outpatient treatment program, and having another therapist do the dirty work, not even deigning to meet with the patient to process the loss of the relationship, is terribly, terribly wrong.

I don't understand how someone trained in any school of therapy could do that to a vulnerable patient.
