An investigation of boundaries and counter-transference

Sometimes patients finish a consultation leaving us with a satisfied and appreciated feeling. But how do you manage the patient who makes you feel intimidated, frustrated, disgusted, saddened, belittled or ashamed?

What do you do when you feel uncomfortable about signing something? This presentation examines the reasons for all those "gut feelings" and the nature of the doctor-patient relationship
