Jdna—I would PM DocJohn and the admins about this. They don’t read every post (no one could) and might not know this was here.

I totally agree. Like Romantic feelings. Right now its about half the threads on the first page and they have similar sounding titles if youre not following them. Its already its own subforum.

Agreed. I've stopped reading them and it seems like there's 5 or 6 threads with the same topic right now.

Also it seems like there's often a big argument when someone who has not had a bad experience with therapy posts in those threads.

It would be nice to have a sub forum there seems to be allot of interest and a need for it.

I have to agree while I skip many topics that do not pertain to me, at one point there were 7 different threads on the topic of therapist sbuse. Honestly, that was why I started the post about the benefits of therapy.

I agree. I think this request has been made multiple times by multiple members and it would be nice if perhaps administration considered this option.

And I like the idea of giving it a title that makes most sense to those who would benefit from it. Seems like Therapy Trauma appears to be the preference? Not sure.

Therapy trauma and iatrogenic harm are two terms that the OP of one recent thread used. Sounds like a good title -- Therapy Trauma and Iatrogenic Harm -- to me. That person lives in Europe though, so may not have had a chance to chime in.

Just adding my two cents-

People keep referencing the romantic therapy subforum, but it doesn't make sense that forum even exists. Most of those discussions it contains are about transference or therapy abuse (eg sexual relations, boundary crossings), not romantic feelings. While discussions in the main forum area are also about transference and boundary crossings and being friends with your therapist. People discussing their idealization of a therapist is discussed in both sections.

All the extra forums and subforums at this site leads to slow moving threads/forums because there are already too many categories.

For example, we have:

Health Support
Disabilities and Chronic Diseases*
Chronic Pain Support

The same exact topics would be posted in all 3 subforums, and so all 3 would appear 'slow' or 'dead'. Slow forums deter me from posting, so I think the extra forums can deter conversations.

*There are only 3 threads in this entire forum, and one is has the topic of pain, which could easily go in the pain forum. Another thread is about diabetes, which could go in the chronic diseases forum. Why have all these forums if the topics are the same?

The topic of abuse, such as childhood abuse, is intermixed with in session discussions and threads throughout the forum so unsure how certain types of abuse can be separated.

It's good to know certain thread titles may trigger people, as I will now adjust any related thread titles to help minimize.
