Abstract

The doctors' emotional reaction towards the patients has an impact on the doctor-patient relationship. This article focuses on a particular emotion, boredom which is evoked by certain patients. By means of a case vignette, this phenomenon is elucidated and confronted with the psycho-analytical concept of "pensée opératoire", and ways are identified to raise the interest in patients.
