It says they started to date within a few weeks and began a sexual relationship the following month.

They now live together and plan to marry once her divorce is finalized, the document says.

Negotiating the tension between the need for professional regulation and the desire for developing a friendship with certain patients can present clinical and ethical challenges in psychiatric practice.

I will soon define in some more detail what I mean by friendship in this context.A physician must terminate the patient-physician relationship before initiating a dating, romantic, or sexual relationship with a patient.Likewise, sexual or romantic relationships between a physician and a former patient may be unduly influenced by the previous physician-patient relationship.Psychiatrists must use their scientific understanding of the brain, their psychological understanding of the human mind and interpersonal relationships, and their gut-level intuitions about people to guide them in asking the right questions, establishing accurate diagnoses, and prescribing the right course of treatment (including psychotropic medications, psychotherapies, and other modalities).

In order to accomplish these goals, they must gather an enormous amount of personal information about the patient and establish a therapeutic alliance that is based on trust and fidelity to the professional role.The patient/psychiatrist relationship is one of the most complex in contemporary society.
