Facing Harrowing Events and Resilience

At key moments in our lives, we may face harrowing events that threaten to upend everything we've carefully learned to believe in and that make a mockery of the soothing voices we've come to trust. In confusion and bitterness, we may turn against therapy and its naive view of reality and cry bitterly.
