Gabbard's stance is emotional, clear-eyed, compassionate, ethically driven. He is our ideal writer on this topic. What is finally clear, alongside Gabbard's pessimism about the management or eradication of these transgressions, is that any advance in understanding and containing the destructive and self-destructive forces in boundary violations will require all of us both to think self reflectively and to be in dialogue with each other. Adrienne Harris, Ph.D., Clinical Associate Professor of Psychology, New York University In this state-of-the-art edition, Glen Gabbard offers a comprehensive overview of past wisdom and current insights into the persistent problem of boundaries and boundary violations. Written in his usual accessible style, this book spans a wide range in the most deeply thoughtful manner. He never shies away from inconvenient truths of this complex yet rarely traversed terrain. Gabbard courageously made this taboo subject discussable; now he keeps us up to date as well. All mental health professionals should learn this essential knowledge from the 'venerable master' himself.
