Default Re: Sleeping with the Client

I agree that I am most likely to get sleepy if I am bored. And if I am bored in therapy that almost always is a sign that the patient isn't working hard enough, or trying to distract the two of us from the real issues. So far in my young career I have only fallen asleep once. It was after staying up for 36 hours after I was on call one night during my residency. I was quite mortified at the time. Given the unrealistic demands on residents though, I have been able to eventually forgive myself (can anyone say 'harsh, punitive superego'?).
