    I haven't gotten very far through this book but I'm not sure I'm going to bother finishing It has some useful bits but also some potentially damaging and frankly just plain incorrect information Accusing readers trauma survivors of being deceitful when they say I don't know who I am which is a totally normal experience is an awful thing to doThe section on headspaces referred to as domes is pretty good and we may still dip back into this book now and again but we're going to be a lot sceptical from now on

    We often see characters in tv shows and movies who have multiple personality disorder They are usually not portrayed realistically This book sheds a tremendous amount of light on a much misunderstood malady Today we refer to this disorder as Dissociative Identity Disorder DID This name for the disorder is much descriptive of the actual disorder Previously it was believed by most to be an extremely rare condition bought on by some sort of trauma Today psychologists understand that DID is a fairly common outcome of individuals often young children who have endured severe trauma usually cruel and repeated physical sexual mental and emotional abuse Additionally the patient often lacks attachment to othersTo be diagnosed with DID a person exhibits two or distinct personalities or identities that may alternate taking control of the person's consciousness actions and behavior While the person may exhibit a wide range of symptoms the most common appear to be depression memory loss substance or drug abuse panic andor anxiety attacks entering a trance like state sleeping or eating disorders distrust of others and lack of self care or hygeneThe author ATW is a survivor of DID and has written a book of rarely seen depth and explanation of the disorder The book discusses and explains the work and steps taken by the author her Therapist and the therapy group DID is a serious disorder and while the book offers exceptional methods and techniues it is not meant to work alone to handle the disorder Individuals suffering DID would best be served by utilizing the exercises in the book with a ualified therapist it is not a substitute for intense therapy but instead a worthwhile tool for use in conjunction with a ualified therapist A person with DID needs numerous coping mechanisms and an understanding of the disorder With the proper help it is possible for the patient to learn to work with his or her differing identities integrating them to work together to allow the patient to live a fulfilling and satisfying life Focusing on individual responsibility I think this book could be a groundbreaking work in the field of DID It offers a hopeful helpful understanding guide for those surviving with DID and their families Highly recommended and offers rare insight and understanding

    RATING 3 stars I enjoyed this book relatively speaking and found that it had a lot of useful advice and insight regarding some issues that systems may face Along with some other reviews I’ve seen I do agree that some parts came across a bit patronizing and overly simplistic though to be fair this book is intended for those who are newly diagnosed and may not be as familiar with the terminology or the workings of the condition This book is a bit old and possibly outdated so there were were some parts that I did not agree with and scientific understanding has suggested to no longer be true such as the section regarding how “deceitful” and “unacceptable” it was for alters to not always know with certainty who they are when fronting It’s uite common and perfectly normal for alters to struggle with identity and experience varying degrees of blending with other parts Another thing that didn’t sit well with me was how topics such as eating disorders substance abuse and other mental health issues were spoken about in the context of a system Although it’s true that sharing one body among multiple identities each with their own uniue struggles and strengths will inherently mean that one part’s actions will affect everyone else in the system that does not make the alter disrespectful or warrant punishment in the form of exclusion from system activities and discussions Mental health issues among fellow members of your system should be treated with compassion and understanding not be a source of further resentment among one another Regardless there was still a lot of helpful and useful information scattered throughout the book and I felt that it was especially nice to read about things from the perspective of an actual system for once as opposed to professionals even if I disagreed with some of their takes I wouldn’t recommend this book as a whole but I would highlight certain passages to pass on to others

    After reading this I can see why the reviews are mixed This book seems to be wonderful at what it does but that's a little different than most books in the field If you're looking for something scholarly there are better options This provides a detailed glimpse of what it's like to live with an exceptionally misunderstood illness in a warm funny human voice and is very well done if that's what you want

    A very strange playful almost patronizing style which felt disrespectful to me for a very challenging and disturbing condition to endure Techniues were good but presentation made it frustrating to read Basic coverage was adeuate A template of what needs tois happening I would have appreciated clinical examples
