Attachment, Trauma and Multiplicity
Working with Dissociative Identity Disorder
Also available at Amazon.com
Valerie Sinason's Treating Survivors of Satanist Abuse addressed a subject that many professionals working in the field had been uncomfortable discussing. Her work in disability and abuse has consistently broken new ground in addressing subjects that many people have found initially hard to deal with. This new book covers the equally 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. Valerie Sinason, along with an impressive array of contributors, covers:
the background history and a description of the condition
issues of diagnoses
the stages of dissociation that lead to full-blown DID
the legal and management problems.
Attachment, Trauma and Multiplicity will be indispensable to professionals in the UK increasingly concerned about their lack of training in this subject and the fear it evokes in them and their teams.
