Benson: Okay... I came to and he was still in my apartment. I could hear him breathing. Therapist: Olivia. You ask victims to go back to a place they'd rather not be when they are at their most vulnerable. Benson: Okay. I felt him... um... pull off the duct tape and it was burning. And I thought... I'm a cop. How could I have let my guard down?
Benson: Thank you for seeing me after hours. Woman: Thank you for making the time. Benson: I didn't really have a choice. I was told it was mandatory. [sits down] So I have investigated sexual assaults for 20 years and I'm pretty familiar with trauma-oriented interviewing. Woman: This part of the training involves role play. So can you think of a trauma, something that happened in your own life? Benson [laughing a little]: Trauma? Woman: Maybe something that's on your mind, that you can't stop thinking about. Benson: Okay... I'm ready.
