The Good Survivor Myth

In my early 20s, as part of a training program in psychotherapy in India, I had the opportunity to sit through a series of observership cases with my guide/mentor who specializes in doing work with women and PTSD. Post one of the more harrowing sessions, the young girl we were consulting with waited back for some official papers that the psychiatrist had to hand over. It was quite late and we were the only two people in the waiting room.
