These are very interesting ideas, which can really be applied to any form of teaching, indeed even to parenting. But I think it's also important to remember that unless you know the student very well, you are essentially speculating. e.g. Perhaps Elizabeth simply has a bad memory, not a psychological issue.
There is a code of ethics in my Yoga School that strictly prohibits inappropriate behavior on the part of the teacher. Interestingly, I've never noticed any particular discussions between teacher and student in my classes; it's all practice.
