Professional Therapy NEVER Includes Sex

Fortunately, we have very strict professional guidelines for therapists in this country that are meant to protect patients from harm.  Sometimes therapists can overstep boundaries and cause harm due to their own unresolved issues and problems.

If your therapist EVER suggests sexual contact between the two of you, you should ALWAYS say no and immediately report the incident to the therapist’s licensing board.

The reason for this is that extensive research has led to recognition of the extensive harm that therapist-client sex can produce. Nevertheless, research suggests that perpetrators account for about 4.4% of therapists (7% of male therapists; 1.5% of female therapists) when data from national studies are pooled.
