I think maybe it would be hard for me to think about that. Because my first thought would be that therapists (and everyone else really) probably need to work hard at maintaining a stance of lovingkindness and generosity towards their clients. But I don't want to think of my therapist as having to work hard at that. :)

My therapist responds by saying that if he felt any of those things, I'd know it. And that's likely true.

As a matter of curiosity, do the professionals who say those things strike you as people you would like to have as therapists? Do they "feel" the same to you as your therapist?

I wonder if it serves some purpose, that attitude? That it provides a level of protection for the person thinking it that *they* will never be in that position, that that will never happen to *them*.

But on the other hand, I suppose some of it is frustration in what probably is a frustrating profession. And maybe some blowing off of steam in a "safe" environment?

Still, my least favorite part of In Session was the sessions where he talked about his patients. It's not something I like to think about.

(Although come to think of it, my therapist probably wouldn't enjoy seeing Babble either.)
