Abstract

As the case reported in this paper suggests, clinicians who encounter a patient's claim of a therapist's sexual misconduct involving another patient should respect the patient's perceptions and provide an unhurried, careful, and neutral exploration of the claim. Such clinicians should also be aware of requirements to report misconduct to local licensing boards, should seek help in examining the case from a supervisor, and should pay attention to the influence of countertransference on their perceptions of their roles and duties.
