can therapists who sexually abuse their patient & continue to treat others for the same disorder & also suffer from the same disorder themselves

During school, therapists are told over and over that they cannot have any kind of relationship whatsoever with a client outside of their office. This is extremely important because therapists are in a position of trust. A sexual relationship with a therapist is grounds for one losing their right to practice. It is never appropriate.

They do, because most patients won't turn them in to the APA, (American Psychological Association). If no one turns them in, and presses criminal charges, they will continue to practice. It is rape, a therapist is not only in a position of trust, but a also a position of power, a mentor, often a parental figure. In that sort of situation, it is no different then incest, and no matter how much a patient may tell themselves they are "in love" with...they have been grossly betrayed in the most personal, devastating manner.

The biggest abuse of all is taking money and time from those who seek assistance--but who are offered no goals or plans beyond more reaction time extending pharmaceuticals and endless visits waiting for the "therapist" to get a clue.

There are MANY reasons why the average number of visits to therapy is VERY LOW--and it's not all refusals to accept treatment. Sometimes the emporer IS naked.
