This is a valuable, factual, organized book for patients and therapists involved with coping with, or treating this diagnosis. The caring, non-judgemental approach used by the writer is reassuring to those who suffer from, and feel, the stigma associated with this particular psychiatric condition. Along with several informative chapters, including medications and therapeutic processes, it includes an appendix listing web sites, books, and treatment programs including telephone numbers and addresses which the reader can contact. I highly recommend this excellent reference on the subject.

As a person with DID/MPD I found this book to contain accurate and extremely useful information. Most of all, I found it to state much needed information that allows people such as myself to realize that there is the possiblity of healing for this insidious disorder. I have recovered from the effects of DID/MPD significantly over the past eight years and I know that as long as I keep working at it that I can continue to heal. This book tells it like it is. The author knows what it's all about. And what it's mostly about is getting on with healing and being able not only to cope with life, but to recover and actually join the living. Hope--and healing. That's what it's about. This book provides the information on how to heal, and best of all it shows that a person can hope for, and actually achieve healing. It's up to the reader to use the information provided to start on their own healing journey. Don't give up hope. You can heal. Your loved ones can heal. Thanks to Deborah Bray Haddock for writing this book of encouragement and support.

I wrote this book in an attempt to demystify the diagnosis of DID and to foster communication between those who have DID and the significant people in their lives. I often hear, from those with DID, that they have difficulty talking to others about their experience. This book talks about that experience in clear and respectful language. It covers dissociation, therapy issues, and the needs and concerns of friends, family, and therapists, as well. I truly hope you find it helpful!

This is such a refreshing book for those of us with DID-the majority of us DO NOT identify with the sensationalized versions like Sybil or Truddi Chase-I am SO grateful for all this information and support!!!!!!
