Thank you for posting this. It is so hard to read the posts of people wanting to have a relationship with their therapists and not scream over and over - there is no way you can enter that relationship with truly informed consent and There is no way to balance the power differential.

I'm a reader, and have read many books- but still haven't found one describing a successful marriage or long term partnership between a client and therapist, or exploring that topic.

I learned the hard way about being in an abusive relationship with my former therapist-then found out she had been cited 3 times before-a lady in need for sure!!

Emotional abuse by therapists is actually more common than sexual, but, interestingly enough, very little is written about it. It's, probably, because it is difficult to prove.

In any case, anyone who was emotionally abused by the therapist can visit my website mentioned in my profile signature. You can also talk to me privately if you need further information and/or support. It's better to contact me through the website but if you want to PM me on PC that's ok too.

I just want to notify people in advance that I don't give advice, I don't do online therapy or counseling of any sort and that my idea of support may be different from what you expect. I simply tell how I see the situation and it's up to you to accept my input or not. I always validate the victims by condemning the wrongdoing on the part of the therapist, which doesn't mean that I would necessarily see the whole situation the same way they see it. I will share how I dealt with the abuse at the hands of my therapists, how I've been healing the trauma so far and what I have learned from all my experiences. If that's good enough for you, I'd be glad to be of help.

I was also fortunate to find Advocateweb after the abuse. Their forum and articles provided invaluable assistance at a critical time. I found a wonderful therapist who treats patients who have experienced therapist and professional exploitation.

Thank you for providing these resources. There is no one to talk to when you are first being victimized. Who would you trust?

I too would like to add my acknowledgement of AdvocateWeb as a wonderful resource for those who found themselves in this unfortunate situation. For me it was the most helpful resource I came across. It is very sad that it was eventually shut down. Their forum was very informative and it felt like the safest place to discuss all aspects of abuse in therapy. The person who was in charge moderated it very well. All discussions there were helpful and supportive while, at the same time, allowing for all kinds of opinions to be expressed. Since it was shut down I haven't found any place online where it would be really safe for people with this kind of issue to find support and information. Sad..

Most of the links in the original post are dead as well as the Yahoo Voices post.
