This film follows the course of 26 years of intermittent treatment with a client who first entered therapy at age 4 due to abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Dr. Gussie Klorer, PhD, ATR-BC, HLM, is the therapist and narrates the film. The film documents a full session with the client when she is 30. Dr. Klorer shows Shasmine (and the viewer) excerpts of sessions from when she was 6 and 13 years old, as they discuss termination of therapy. In the narration, Dr. Klorer explains the theory behind her work, and explains how attachment work at a young age helps to formulate a therapeutic relationship that prevails over time. Klorer also discusses the ethical implications of videotaping sessions.
