Imagine going to group therapy to address your shame and discovering that the therapist’s methods were a bit, say, unconventional.
Chicago-based writer and essayist, Christie Tate was upset when her therapist, Dr. Rosen, asked her to tell everyone in “Group” some of her most closely guarded secrets, like listing everything she’d had to eat that day or detailing a viscous, private message she’d left for him the night before.
But what would you do, if Dr. Rosen went a step further and asked you to call someone before and after you’d masturbated or instructed your boyfriend not to go down on you? Would you decide that he was crazy and leave group therapy behind? Or would you invite Dr. Rosen to your wedding and make sure you had a special dance, just you and him?
