“I’m glad to hear you say that,” the right-wing host said reassuringly.

“I think he is an extremely resilient person”
When asked if everyone responds to trauma in the same way, Dr. Lebowitz said, “absolutely not.”
Speaking about Ms Carroll not using the words “rape victim”, the psychology expert said: “Carroll, like most of us, doesn’t want to be a victim, she doesn’t want to be pitied.”
Dr. Lebowitz said that Ms. Carroll, more than others, wants to be perceived as giving advice to others.
“Stiff upper lip: take action and leave it behind,” said Dr. Lebowitz, according to Law and Crime.
“I think if you ask him what he thinks is true, he would say ‘no, I don’t think a woman’” should be held responsible for being raped, Dr. Lebowitz said.
But your feelings on the subject may be different.
“This is how humans work,” he said.
“I think she’s an extremely resilient person,” he said of Ms. Carroll.
Speaking about Ms Carroll continuing to go to the Berghof Goodman where the alleged rape took place, Dr Lebowitz said: “She did not feel that Bergdorf Goodman raped her. She didn’t blame the store. She blamed herself.”
The psychology expert went on to say that Ms. Carroll observed The newbiewhich was introduced by Mr. Trump, because she did not want her professional life to be affected.
“Not seeing The Apprentice in his social and professional circle at that time would stand out,” he said.

A psychology expert says it’s “incredibly common for people to feel like it’s their fault”
Ms. Carroll’s lawyer asked Dr. Lebowitz: “Ms. Carroll thought she was dead but she was still alive. You understand?”
“This is common among rape survivors,” said the expert, according to City Center Press.
“What does the phrase self-blame mean?” asked the lawyer.
“In sexual assaults, it’s incredibly common for people to feel like it’s their fault. One of the reasons is that the experience of being raped is that of losing control. Then blaming yourself takes control back,” said Dr. Lebowitz.
The attorney inquired about the negative impacts on Ms. Carroll.
“Decreased ability to feel good about herself and lack of an intimate romantic life that has led to deep feelings of loss. She blamed herself, she felt that she had been stupid,” Dr. Lebowitz responded.
