Intense Affects

Intense physician feelings elicited through patient interactions may include hate, fury, or frustration toward a patient (Groves, 1978; Strous et al., 2006). Alternatively, the physician may have strong feelings of love, sexual arousal, or wanting to rescue the patient or provide exceptionally good medical care. These may alternate with other wishes to avoid the patient, terminate the relationship, or transfer the patient to a colleague. In extreme cases, intense feelings aroused in a physician can become a focal point for leading the physician into boundary violations with a patient. These are extremely damaging to both parties and violate the tenets of professional behavior.
