Think Like the Test 1 - To Start, an Easy One

Carrie Wiita and Ben Caldwell talk through a sample question to start our discussion of test-taking skills, and Carrie comes one step closer to an important life goal.

This question comes from an older version of the BBS California LMFT Law & Ethics Exam handbook. It would equally apply to the LPCC and LCSW Law & Ethics exams.

A client initiates therapy for depression following a failed marriage. The therapist finds the client very attractive. Which of the following actions should the therapist take to manage the ethical obligation in this case?

  1. Suppress personal feelings of attraction and continue providing therapy
  2. Inform the client of the therapist’s feelings and discuss therapeutic boundaries
  3. Explain the ethical issue to the client and provide a referral to an alternate therapist
  4. Seek consultation to manage the attraction and monitor therapeutic boundaries
