Thank you, Tracy. I agree, patience is essential. So is calm acceptance. I think therapists need to have thorough knowledge of what can happen in sexual experiences so they are not shocked by anything a patient tells them. The therapist's emotional response, even when controlled, has a powerful impact on a patient, especially when related to sexual behaviors and fantasies. Perhaps, if a patient realizes the therapist is controlling an emotional response, the impact is even greater. The therapist and the patient need to be able to meet candidly, without judging or fear of judgment so these areas and their meanings can be explored. Both people need to have patience with each others and with themselves. Thank you again, Tracy.
