Valerie Sinason's Treating Survivors of Satanist Abuse addressed a subject that many professionals working in the field had been uncomfortable discussing. This new book covers the unexplored subject of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), and is the first major British book available for both clinicians and the intelligent lay public on this subject. Attachment, Trauma and Multiplicity explains the phenomenon of DID, the conflicting models of the human mind that have been found to try and understand it, the political conflict over the subject, and, with the permission of patients, clinical accounts.
