Got Parts is a practical self help guide for adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse It is filled with coping strategies techniues and hopes for DID survivors to master real life issues in relationshi. We often see characters in tv shows and movies who have multiple personality disorder They are usually not portrayed realistically This book sheds a tremendous amount of light on a much misunderstood malady Today we refer to this disorder as Dissociative Identity Disorder DID This name for the disorder is much descriptive of the actual disorder Previously it was believed by most to be an extremely rare condition bought on by some sort of trauma Today psychologists understand that DID is a fairly common outcome of individuals often young children who have endured severe trauma usually cruel and repeated physical sexual mental and emotional abuse Additionally the patient often lacks attachment to othersTo be diagnosed with DID a person exhibits two or distinct personalities or identities that may alternate taking control of the person s consciousness actions and behavior While the person may exhibit a wide range of symptoms the most common appear to be depression memory loss substance or drug abuse panic andor anxiety attacks entering a trance like state sleeping or eating disorders distrust of others and lack of self care or hygeneThe author ATW is a survivor of DID and has written a book of rarely seen depth and explanation of the disorder The book discusses and explains the work and steps taken by the author her Therapist and the therapy group DID is a serious disorder and while the book offers exceptional methods and techniues it is not meant to work alone to handle the disorder Individuals suffering DID would best be served by utilizing the exercises in the book with a ualified therapist it is not a substitute for intense therapy but instead a worthwhile tool for use in conjunction with a ualified therapist A person with DID needs numerous coping mechanisms and an understanding of the disorder With the proper help it is possible for the patient to learn to work with his or her differing identities integrating them to work together to allow the patient to live a fulfilling and satisfying life Focusing on individual responsibility I think this book could be a groundbreaking work in the field of DID It offers a hopeful helpful understanding guide for those surviving with DID and their families Highly recommended and offers rare insight and understanding
