"Well I Got a Few of My Own": Therapists' Reactions to Attraction, Sex, and Love in Psychotherapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Scopus citations


This article serves as an introduction to this issue of the journal on sex, love, intimacy, and attraction in psychotherapy, with a particular emphasis on therapists' reactions to these subjects. A common theme throughout this special issue is that such topics are natural, common, challenging, and potentially dangerous. I call attention to a few of the highlights of each of the articles in the issue, and I offer suggestions on how therapists might effectively manage their own reactions to these challenging topics.
