Sessions (Off-Broadway) Story

In Sessions, the fictional Dr. Peter Peterson listens, advises and cajoles patients who experience marital squabbles, physical and emotional abuse, and innocent and harmless neuroses. The patients make up individual therapy, couples and group. It is done with humor and seriousness depending on the issues each patient or patients are trying to resolve. Peterson questions his own abilities which he discusses with his "own" therapist and views his work as both an art and science. Sometimes he helps and derives a sense of accomplishment and at other times he is angry with himself for what he views as a missed diagnosis or a failure to get past the patient's resistance. Ultimately, Sessions is filled with humorous encounters and the pathos of "difficulties" that seem so impossible to resolve.
