    A survey of psychiatrists last year indicated that 70% had slept with a patient and 40% had slept with more than one patient. While I wouldn’t doubt it overstates the case, it’s wrong to do take advantage of someone who has a neurosis or psychosis.
    This psychologist blew it. He should be asking such things as if she is scared of Lucas and thus why she considers him a safe substitute? Is it because nothing can happen? He should try to get to the bottom of her fear of relationships with people. What sparked it off? etc.

    She didn’t appear to have a drinking problem when she was hanging with that guy in Hawaii. I really don’t want to sound crass ….. but she does seem to be happier when she is getting her toes curled regularly.

    Saved by the bell! This poor therapist needs time to revamp his strategy with Mona. Or drop her altogether….

    Not a good reason to see him. I’d tell her it wouldn’t be right for her or him to do that.

    Right — if he were a genuine well-trained therapist this transference would not be a surprise, and he would have a better handle on his own counter-transference.

    Mona, I think you remind him of his mother.

    It is definitely a continuing issue but those numbers are way out of the ballpark. It’s hard to believe that many professionals would risk everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve. Those kind of unsubstantiated claims usually come from the anti-psychiatry organizations. Abusing patient / provider relationships is risking losing a career they spent over a decade achieving. But as we all know, sometimes the little head does all the thinking…

    re: Lonnie

    you are most likely right. While supposedly a survey within the psychiatric profession, if it’s like most surveys, you are probably getting 5% or less. Like polls, one is probably getting just the fringes, rather than the mainstream, because the average person has no time to answer the questions.
