You know, I've never asked for or received a hug. I'm not sure I would want one from him. I think it might intensify the transference beyond what I can cope with right now. I don't know. My immediate family were not huggers, either, so if I've got a paternal transference going, I would not be likely to hug him.

I have hugged a client before. When I worked in a nursing home I was not at all shy about hugging my clients or holding their hands. I just think caring human touch is so important, and residents of NH's don't always get it.

I had an adult client this year ask for a hug. She was going through a divorce, and was usually quite upset when she would come in for sessions. That felt okay to me, but I don't think I would be likely to hug the undergrads.
