Feelings of love, the wish for extra-therapeutic social contact, and the experience of sexual urges between psychotherapy patients and their therapists have been an endless source of confusion and misconceptions for those involved with emotional healing. This accessible text offers fresh perspectives and principles of technique for how best to handle expressions of love and sexual desire in the course of a therapy experience.
Robert Langs is Visiting Professor of Psychiatry at Mt. Sinai Hospital and School of Medicine, and Honorary Visiting Fellow with the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, Regent's College, London.
