    In the first of two articles, authors Hook & Devereux define harm in the therapeutic context, discuss its prevalence and then focus on the adverse effects that may arise when a patient transfers idealising feelings onto the professional. In the second article, the authors explain that the subject of sexual boundary violations by healthcare professionals has largely been ignored in the UK. They argue that it is timely for all professions working with vulnerable people to take the problem seriously, to provide appropriate services for victims, evaluation and assessment of perpetrators, and sanctions that fit the crime in order to regain public trust.
