Miss Dungey claimed Dr Pates took advantage of her vulnerability when he began an affair with her in 2001. The court heard that the relationship ended in 2003.

Miss Dungey told Dr Pates she loved him, and he replied that her feelings were not reciprocated, and that he was not prepared to leave his wife for her.

This could be anything as minor as sending a letter of concern to jail time.

As for who would do the approaching…The more a therapist does the approaching (remember that the therapist is assumed to have influence on the patient and be in a position of power over them) the higher the risk that if the patient decides the advances are not (or no longer) desired, the therapist could be considered to have engaged in an unethical behavior.

In all states, psychologists (at least) have an ethical responsibility to avoid “dual” relationships; that is, having a client-therapist relationship and another form of relationship (e.g., babysitting, hiring someone to paint your house, being someone’s teacher).

This is often most concerning when the “dual” relationship is a friendship, and more egregiously, if intimacy or a romantic connection is formed.

Miss Dungey's claim against Dr Pates was dismissed by the High Court in Cardiff last September.

This week the Appeal Court in London refused her permission to appeal.

If Hollywood is an indicator of our most common fantasies, modern Americans want to sleep with their therapists.

I am horrified that so many television shows and movies depict romantic relationships between therapists and clients as though they were perfectly normal!
