I was reading past posts from someone whose therapist had told her he was in love with her and that quite frankly was the first time I had ever thought of that. I can see why people would develop feelings for their therapists, you tell them pretty much everything. My therapist is very effective and has helped a lot, but honestly is not physically attractive to me at all. I do get an uncomfortable feeling when he tells me stuff about his family and vacations etc. I'm not sure why. Maybe I am having a hard time seeing him as having a life of his own. I'm going to get the book and read about it. My neighbor is a psychiatric nurse and she also said it was an excellent text. Thanks to both of you for the suggestions.

> I've had a mutual relationship with a former shrink, which is a huge boundary crossing and one that took a very long time to work through. Dinah's book suggestion is excellent, it will help you understand transference and therapy. I don't know how widespread it is, but I do know that when it is acted out by the therapist, it is probably the worst possible scenario that can happen to a client. Are you just referring to feelings? Are they yours or are they coming from your therapist? take care, judy
