Reseña del editor
What happens when a patient falls for her therapist - or a therapist is powerfully drawn to a client? Is it always a matter of abuse? In this provocative and timely study of intimacy in psychotherapy, both sides speak out for the first time, revealing the surprising spectrum of experience and feeling encountered when love slips into the therapy hour. Drawing on hundreds of instances of mutual attraction, Susan Baur shows that the stories to be told are rarely simple ones. They range instead from clear-cut cases of victimization to the grayer areas where those involved can be either lovestruck or truly in love. Firsthand accounts confirm that sexual attraction is common despite regulations to suppress it, and that fear of scandal has left those seeking help - counselors and clients alike - with nowhere to turn for advice. Together with stories of the famous liaisons of Carl Jung, Anton Mesmer, Otto Rank, and others, these accounts offer irrefutable evidence that attraction in therapy ta

I still stand by what I've said. This book isn't really an answer to anything, but it is still the only one of its kind that was brave enough to tackle both sides of this particular issue...
First of all, I have read pretty much every book written on the concerns of dual relationships; power and relationships is the primary area of my professional study. This is, bar none, the best of those in its area of focus.
-If you are looking for a clear-cut answer to the debate of "are dual-relationships [x]," you will not find it, here or anywhere else. If you are looking for an in-depth book about how to properly navigate and manage dual-relationships, you will not find that either. If you are looking to understand the power mechanics of how dual-relationships function, you will also not find that, here or anywhere else. The fact of the matter is, our society is so entrenched within the system of external-focus power that such a book does not exist. Yet.
-If you are looking for a book about how to treat or deal with people, in or out of therapy, who have been in/hurt by dual relationships, this is not a treatment book. While it may give you a broader insight into the nature of the subject, it will most likely not help you deal with someone who is experiencing the after-effects and needing therapy. Quite honestly, people in that position are not interested in being told that "their experience may make them better on down the road." Such is counter-productive to therapy.
-If you are a second-wave feminist with an agenda... this will not help you fulfill it. I would, however, recommend you read this anyway.
-If, on the other hand, you are looking for a (mostly) unbiased over-view of the nature of dual-relationships (but not their mechanics), and a historical over-view of famous examples in Psychotherapy, this is the one and only book I would recommend. Baur also does a good job of addressing many of the concerns brought up by dual-relationships, and thankfully is not afraid to mention that nearly all of the well-known cases (ex: Jung and Spir.) left both parties both troubled AND BETTER OFF THAN THEY WERE BEFORE. That last part seems to be what so many conservative writers try to bury.
My biggest complains is the cost... you are looking at $40+ new (when I bought it) for a book that should have cost $16-$20 new. There were good-condition copies of this book left, at least not for a decent price.
Personally I am more than happy of my copy, even though I had to trash the dust jacket (unidentifiable stains, dirt, tears, etc.) and the book was a bit dirty. Was not anywhere near the "great" condition I supposedly bought it in. Also never heard back from the seller.
