What is it like to live with dissociative identity disorder? How does the brain respond to chronic, extreme trauma? Is recovery possible from such suffering?
Available in paperback for the first time, this printed book combines the first and second volumes of Carolyn Spring's collected essays.
Carolyn writes candidly from a number of perspectives about her experiences of living with trauma-related dissociation, and her journey of recovery. Her book covers topics such as shame, denial, child sexual abuse, the complex meanings of 'madness' and the multi-layered subjective experience of a dissociative mind. It is a series of standalone chapters or essays which build on one another to provide not only a unique insight into trauma, attachment and dissociation, but also the long and arduous - but ultimately fulfilling - recovery journey.
