Interviewed 13 predoctoral psychology interns about experiences of sexual attraction toward a client. Results indicate that sexual attraction consisted of physical and interpersonal aspects. Therapists believed that they were more invested and attentive than usual to clients to whom they were attracted, but the attraction also introduced distance, distraction, and lessened objectivity.
