The Story Behind the Story: “A Late Appointment”

I worked as a social worker for 42 years; 27 of those as a psychotherapist. “A Late Appointment” is a true story. The client is so typical of many victims of domestic abuse. She is small, lacks confidence, and seems to have so little sense of self or of a voice of her own. I wanted to tell this woman’s story, but also to give voice to all the women I’ve seen who felt they had no voice; who felt they couldn’t tell their own stories.
