Sexual Behavior Between Clinical Supervisors and Trainees:
Implications for Professional Standards
This article ("Sexual Behavior Between Clinical Supervisors and Trainees: Implications for Professional Standards") was published in Professional Psychology, vol. 11, #1, pages 157-162.
ABSTRACT: Sexual behavior between clinical supervisors and trainees presents a challenge to professional psychology and deserves to be carefully addressed. At least 4 areas need attention: the prevalence and nature of such sexual contact, its effects on clinical training, ethical implications, and the potential legal liability of supervisors who engage in sexual intimacies with trainees. The extent to which sexual behavior in the supervisory relationship may have negative effects on the teaching and learning of professional skills remains unknown until it becomes a legitimate subject of research and discussion.
