Case Study and Therapy Plan for Olivia Benson

Author’s Note: This is my final paper for my Therapeutic Techniques and Counseling class. We had to write a case study on a fictional character and then create a realistic treatment plan for them. This piece contains in-depth descriptions of PTSD, its symptomology, Olivia Benson’s symptoms, and her trauma. Trigger warnings abound for abuse, alcoholism, sexual assault, and kidnapping. If you need something lighter from me, my Disney publication is here:
