Psychology

When a patient opens up to a therapist they sometimes become attached and dependent on their therapist. I tried to find information on Woody Allen Syndrome but nothing is coming up. Is this common and how can therapists try to prevent this situation?

  2. I was unable to get the above link in two tries, but the phenomenon you are describing is called transference.

    I searched Google under the key words "'Woody Allen Syndrome'" to get these possible sources:

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
