Experience and science support two propositions that shall serve as the primary focus of this chapter. First, there are “reality” factors that are more or less specific to the psychotherapy of therapist-patients that must be taken into account when dealing with the contractual, interpersonal, ethical, and intrapersonal boundaries that arise during the beginning, termination, and posttermination phases of the process of therapy. Second, internalization-based models of the therapeutic action of psychotherapy offer an illuminating vantage point from which to examine the ways psychotherapy contributes to the personal and professional development of psychotherapist-patients.
