Dr. Glen Gabbard is a renowned psychiatrist and psychiatric educator whose research has been invaluable in the mental health field and elsewhere. An abuse of power can happen at work, in the church or any institute or organization that runs hierarchically. His message is for all of us, because the moment anyone believes they are infallible they are bound to make mistakes. At its best, the relationship between a patient and psychotherapist should be a safe place where learning, personal growth and healing can happen. In some ways we could say something similar about working for a company where we have a manager who supervises our successes and/or our failures. That is why Dr. Glen Gabbard’s research, counsel and writing about blurred boundaries is so important in our every day lives.
