In psychotherapy, dual relationships, or multiple relationships, refer to situations in which multiple roles exist between a therapist and a client. These are situations in which therapists have additional relationships with their clients beyond the clinical-therapeutic ones. Examples of dual relationships arise when a therapist's client is also the therapist's student, employee, colleague or friend (Zur, 2007).
