“This book will be a valuable tool not only for those working at living with DID/MPD but also for family, friends, therapists and others seeking to understand and support these interesting and complex people. Tracy Alderman and Karen Marshall have delivered not only a practical guide full of useful exercises and activities, but also a refreshing and delightful look at the healing process through the eyes and voices of the ‘little ones.’ The perspective of the ‘dissociated identities’ brings the experience alive and may change the way DID is viewed by many.”
—Pamela M. Badger, M.S., M.F.C.C., therapist and member of the International Society for the Study of Dissociation
