    Hi Steve! I found your list of vulnerable factors for therapists and clients articulate and very helpful. My question is this, when you find yourself (as a therapist) in a vulnerable position, do you talk to your client about it or should this conversation only occur with other professionals (supervision or consultation groups)? I found myself feeling incredibly vulnerable with clients and coworkers because I was a young/naive (single without children), in-home MFT (isolated in the community) for a large, non-profit agency.

    Thank you Dr. Frankel for the webinar you did on Law, Ethics and Risk Management. The major thing I took away from this one hour session, is how little I know about the subject. I have been in practice with clients and supervising therapists for many years, and have never gotten in trouble with the board or the legal system. I wonder sometimes, how I escaped that. I think it is getting harder and harder to practice in today's world and it is amazing that mental health professionals have the least amount of suits against them. I will definitely go on your web site to learn more.
    Rich, you kept on commenting about this webinar being the last of this series, when the 6th in this series was Telemental Health in the 21st Century. Did I get that wrong.
    But I did want to thank you for your presence and commentary through these 6 sessions. Your words and wisdom added a lot.
    Shirley Hanson
