Tutor description

While feeling rooted in the world, the patient must go beyond the physical world in order to overcome his or her post-trauma stress. Even though the patient does not literally go back in time, the results of replaying a traumatic incident and confronting it in his or her mind have real effects in the patient's life. Furthermore, since the patient is able to transform his or her feelings about the event, then the patient attains the refreshed outlook on life, a result of transcendence. As illustrated by the labyrinth in the Magical Realist story "The Garden of Forking Paths," how the person lives the rest of his or her life depends on which path in life the person chooses to take (Borges 19-29). Therefore, if and how the patient chooses to confront the trauma in his or her mind affects the patient's future way of living.
