Thank you, Gardenergirl, for your answers to CareBear's questions. It really helped me understand a lot more about why my former T is acting the way he is. I've been told something about ethics before, but to have it explained in such a human way really does help.

I think it's so great that you are here to offer your perspective...from a really unique vantage point. I can only imagine how much more compassion and understanding you must have for your clients.

(short story) Three months before I terminated with former T, I found "In Session" and read it cover to cover. I mentioned it to my T at the time and he didn't really seem interested--just skeptical. Right before I terminated he asked me about the book again. Eventually he read it and admitted to me that he loved it, and that "It's really cool to read something from the perspective of the client." To which I thought, you mean the majority of what you read ISN'T from the perspective of the client?? He also apologized for earlier engaging in what he called "professional snobbery" in regards to my book suggestion.

Anyway, I really appreciate your humility as you engage on this crazy therapy thing with us...
