“It’s absolutely safe, we’ve traded this technology with a few other species already. I’m happy to explain the medical process behind it if you like, it even works with Betazoids, though for them it’s somewhat superfluous.” she said.

Ghubari nodded. “Alright. I’ll give my permission for you to add this technique to your processes if your patients are willing. If they have all the information and agree, I see no reason to not proceed. Just, keep me informed on the situation. PTSD is a rather insidious condition for active duty personnel and we can’t guarantee our next assignment will be… easier. Make sure anyone who flags with potential symptoms gets at least an evaluation and if they refuse or it is serious enough to affect their ability to be on duty, make sure to notify their department head.”

Laraan nodded. “Yes Captain. One thing though… just how are we supposed to convince some very resistant crewmembers to even have an evaluation?” she asked.

  • Laraan, CNS

Ghubari was actually surprised, and amused. “Why Laraan, surely every counsellor is prepared to play hardball when it comes to necessary evaluations,” she said with a gleam in her pale amber eyes. “I’ll help you out though and distribute a memo to all the department heads to brief their teams about the possibility of Counselling doing
assessments in the aftermath of our last mission. How you convince people you identify, well, that’s up to you, but I’ve rarely met a strong therapist not willing to take someone off duty until they complied, and few officers would suffer such an embarrassment. What I can’t guarantee you is their cooperation in sessions. That’ll be up to you,” she said, glancing between Laraan and Janna.

“I’ve dealt with more than my share of recalcitrant patients,” Janna said with her own smirk. And indeed she could recall even a battle of wills between her and one of Commanding Officers of Outpost 45 that had sought her out and then played hardball. That had taken a great deal of her skill.
