Therapists vary in the extent to which they are self-revealing. The focus of the psychoanalytically oriented therapist on the transference necessitates limiting self-revelation in order to approximate a “blank screen” for the patient’s projections. Other therapists are guided by the belief that self-revelation begets self-revelation. In turn, patients struggle with how much they want to know about their therapists’ personal lives, and how they will go about gratifying their curiosity. “Understanding Eva” draws our attention to the implications of one patient’s coming to know the very human aspects of her psychotherapist.
