Finding Emotional Sanity After Years of Captivity

Now that Jaycee Dugard is free, what does the road to recovery look like?

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

After 18 years of being held captive, how will Jaycee Dugard break from the emotional and mental stresses that built up during that time?  We talk to Benedict Carey, science reporter for The New York Times, to look at if and how a person begins to return to normalcy after years of torment.

Read Ben's piece on the psychology of recovery on the front page of today's New York Times: "For Longtime Captives, a Complex Road Home."
