Not adequate to my needs.
Reviewed in the United States on July 24, 2016
I've been treating folks with DID for about 20 years. Back when I first started there were very few resources for clients, and few for clinicians as well. I was not impressed with this book, as I had been hoping to find something for clients and their families that would be much more specific to the DID experience. This book includes a lot of general information about psychotherapy, schools of psychology, and therapeutic techniques like EMDR, as well as information about psychiatric medications. To me, this was all filler. I found only the last few chapters to be helpful. I could have used those chapters as a small booklet for clients and their families. Perhaps I had the wrong idea about what I was ordering. In any case, I won't be recommending this book to my DID clients.
