> Well, zazenducke, it's been my experience and many others that I have seen here to express 'childlike' emotions and thinking in therapy. When someone's issues go back far, so can their emotions and mindset surrounding the issue. The idea in some cases, I think, is to resolve it there and absorb it into the adult experience and mind.
Well, Miss K, that's not what I am talking about.I would say therapists that infantalize their patients respond to them as children and try to meet their needs directly by playing a parental role and treating them *as if they were really children*-promising unfailing love and acceptance and handing out stuffed toys and generally trying to give them the parental relationship they missed. That is not what you are talking about is it? My point about emotional incest was that a parent does not involve himself in the child's sexual fantasies or thoughts. If the patient is Daddy-therapist's little girl at one moment being nurtured and supposedly having a corrective emotional attachment and the next moment discussing her sexual fantasies and experiences with the Daddy-therapist, it's incestuous.
> As for danger of exploitation, that possibility exists with an unscrupulous therapist, perhaps. One doesn't even have to be expressing a childlike mind. Even as adults, when we open ourselves and make ourselves vulnerable to another's influence there is the risk of exploitation of that vulnerability.

Not necessarily even unscrupulous just unwise.
