    • Abstract:
      Sexual intimacy between therapists and clients is explicitly recognized as one of the most serious violations of the professional-client relationship, subject to both regulatory and administrative penalties and, in several states, criminal sanctions. In this paper we examine the written accounts submitted to tile Colorado State Grievance Board by psychotherapists who have had complaints of sexual misconduct filed against them by former clients. We employ Scott and Lyman's classic formulation of accounts and Goffman's notion of the apology as conceptual guides in organizing the vocabularies of motive used by our group of therapists to explain their untoward behavior.
