Note that Ken would not see a survivor's partner except at the survivor's request and even then he would not see the partner individually. As a survivor in therapy myself I can see how important this is. I need to have 100% confidence in my T, and it would be difficult to maintain that if I knew that later that week she would be seeing my wife to give her tips on how to help me.

I think this really would put the therapist in a difficult position and would surely have to complicate the task of getting the survivor to speak frankly and openly about how he feels.

Much love,

Thank you for all of your responses. I decided not to go see my husband's T. Your input is appreciated.
