Summary

A patient-oriented manual for complex trauma survivors.

This training manual for patients who have a trauma-related dissociative disorder includes short educational pieces, homework sheets, and exercises that address ways in which dissociation interferes with essential emotional and life skills, and support inner communication and collaboration with dissociative parts of the personality. 

Topics include understanding dissociation and PTSD, using inner reflection, emotion regulation, coping with dissociative problems related to triggers and traumatic memories, resolving sleep problems related to dissociation, coping with relational difficulties, and help with many other difficulties with daily life. The manual can be used in individual therapy or structured groups.

Audiobook lacks access to worksheets

Really insightful book. The audiobook does not include a copy of the many worksheets mentioned, which makes it far less helpful.

Great book, title a little misleading.

This book and the guidelines it contains, had helped me managing a patient with diagnosed BPD and a big probability of having also DID. I say the title is quite misleading because the ‘Trauma-Related’ part has predisposed almost everyone who reads it, including my patient and other colleagues, that Trauma-Related Dissociation necessarily has to stem from overtly traumatic experiences like sexual abuse, and not from more subtle kinds of trauma like neglect and excessive parental control and invalidation. Anyway, the book eventually makes that distinction clear, so it doesn’t really matter.

Great Except ...

Wonderful, calming narrator. Very useful and clear content.
Not modified for audio. No access to worksheets. Basically says - 'complete exercise for ... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. complete exercise for ... 1, 2, 3, 4.' Those parts are truly useless without the worksheets.
Still recommended, but annoyed.

Informative

Great knowledge for someone who has experienced a lot of trauma starting at a young age. Recommended for anyone who wants to get a better understanding of why life an relationships may seem so damn hard because of the terrible experiences they have faced, particularly in childhood but not limited to any trauma one may have experienced in any time period. Happy healing.

A book about me... us?

I've always felt I was an alien in my own body, just hosting various people to act the way they want. I hear voices in my head, it's my PTSD/DID Doctor (PhD) who recommended I work this book while in treatment with her.

I got the audiobook first in order to decide if it was something worth investing in. the opening introduction rocked my world. I now own the text version and will be starting the process soon.

I only did that because the audiobook is well done, great voice, well written and 100% worth it.
