Speight, Suzette L.
Counseling Psychologist, v40 n1 p133-157 Jan 2012
This article explores the boundaries between clinicians and clients in light of the construct of solidarity.

The article includes case illustrations of the connection between boundaries and solidarity and concludes with suggestions for mental health professionals.
