Thanks GG, that helped to know that you liked hearing from your old client.

Maybe I can write to him once in a while and not often.

> Well, I've only heard from two clients after termination, but my clients from last year are in nursing homes, so it would be unlikely to hear from them. My clients this past year may be more likely, so we'll see as time goes by.
> I didn't mind hearing recently from an old client. In fact, I was delighted. And last fall I ran into my old supervisor who filled me in on how my clients from the nursing homes were doing. I was happy to hear that too.
> So right now, I'm not feeling bugged at all. I suppose if I were to get very frequent emails from a few clients, I might feel overwhelmed and would also be worried that the clients had not successfully terminated.
> But I'm just guessing...not enough experience to say...
> I can say I genuinely care about my clients, so knowing how they are doing is nice. But perhaps if I heard that they weren't doing well, I might be more concerned and feel some sense of responsiblity to try to help. Although I would not be able to resume therapy with them, so it would be a difficult feeling to cope with.
