My son's new play therapist has a great opening handout that, among other things, discusses the therapeutic relationship.

It explains that therapy feels like an intimate personal relationship but that it is a professional one confined to the hours that she is paid to be there. That contact should be confined to that time and that clients shouldn't try to contact her in extratherapeutic ways through inviting her to personal events or giving her gifts or a few other examples.

It was clear, yet nicely worded, and given at the beginning of the therapeutic relationship when no attachment had been formed.

I liked that.

Of course, on the other hand, my therapist may have given me something similar nearly ten years ago and I blew it off. :))
