Prolonged Exposure Therapy Prolonged exposure therapy involves a process of repeatedly recounting the event as well as facing the source of trauma, as well as real world triggers ("Prolonged Exposure Therapy"). Prolonged exposure therapy, similar to cognitive processing therapy, has four main components: education, breathing, exposure, and recounting the trauma.

I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant”(Zusak,550). Death, the observer has seen the start and will see humanity's end.
It is natural for this to happen, but it is important that when the mistake is made, it is immediately rectified. Carelessness is a recurring theme throughout the entire novel The Great Gatsby. Many deaths, and unfortunate outcomes have happened due to the lack of thought some characters have before performing certain actions.
