« Responding to Sexualised Comments: Option 1 | Main | More Evidence on Effective Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder »



It seems fine to point out the boundaries although this seems a touch overly-assertive / auhtoritarian in tone. I also thought that there is a missed opportunity to think with the client about the meaning of the sexualised comments (e.g. that the client finds it hard to allow you to be a therapist) rather than simply saying "I see what's happening and we'll have no more of it".
