therapy for mental health professionals...

Posted by Penny on August 18, 2003, at 11:57:39

Has anyone ever asked his or her therapist or pdoc if they've ever been in therapy? I realize this is a private issue, and many folks are not comfortable asking such private things about his or her therapist, but I'm curious. I know that many schools that train therapists (schools of social work and of psychology) require students to go through a certain amount of psychotherapy to make sure they have dealt with their own issues.

When I saw my pdoc on Friday, I was talking to him about thinking of becoming a therapist, and was telling him what my former therapist said about 'using what you learn to help others' and he agreed, then told me that after medical school he went through five years of psychoanalysis. I thought that was pretty cool.
