Set in a psychiatrist's office, 'In Session' explores the psychological trauma that accompanies SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, in dramatic fashion.
Dr. Calloway, a sympathetic doctor, probes the trauma Corby tries so desperately to hide in the setting persuading her to divulge her secrets:
first that she is pregnant and second, that a prior pregnancy had resulted in a baby who died from SIDS.
During the session, it takes all of Dr. Calloway's skill to cajole, coax and persuade Corby to divulge her secrets: first that she is, in fact, pregnant and second, that she had a prior pregnancy that resulted in a baby who died from SIDS.
In the course of the story it also becomes clear that emotional trauma is best dealt with by bringing it out into the light, exposing it, dealing with it and, hopefully, healing from that process, rather than hiding it and pushing it away, hoping it will dissipate.
Often the fear of confrontation is bigger than the thing we must confront.
