Sex in the Forbidden Zone: When Men in Power Betray Women’s Trust

October 19, 1990 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PDT


Dr. Rutter’s recently published book has challenged both professionals and their clients to confront the hidden epidemic of sexual contact between male professionals-therapists, doctors, clergy, lawyers, teachers, and mentors-and women under their care or tutelage, Dr. Rutter will elaborate on his Jungian understanding of the archetypal power emanating from the unconscious that can invest forbidden-zone relationships with overwhelming erotic allure. He will also discuss ways in which both men and women can develop healthier means of dealing with sexual boundary problems over which they may feel lack of control, ambivalence, or vulnerability to invasion.
