Relapse Prevention Worksheet
Recovering from abuse takes time. It is important to remember that recovery doesn’t occur perfectly for anyone and there will be relapses during the recovery process. This is normal and it is to be expected. A Relapse Prevention Plan is something that may be helpful to you in preventing a relapse. more>>

Dissociation
Dissociation is a notoriously ungrateful topic. It pushes nearly every “hot button” in the human psyche, with its allusions to gross abuse of small children, devil-worship, hypnosis, recovered memories, lawsuits, and the like. The attempt to objectify phenomena that are primarily internal and not subject to external validation is foredoomed to failure. And, as I shall attempt to show, there are substantial differences in cognitive style between those who suffer from dissociation, those who treat it, and those who reject it totally. more >>

Dissociation on a Spectrum
As society has become increasingly aware of the prevalence of child abuse and its serious consequences, there has been an explosion of information on post traumatic and dissociative disorders resulting from abuse in childhood. Since most clinicians learned little about childhood trauma and its aftereffects in their training, many are struggling to build their knowledge base and clinical skills to effectively treat survivors and their families. more >>

Dissociation & Stages of Development
Multiples and dissociative abuse survivors grew up in environments that were about as far from perfect as can be imagined. Because of this, the tasks of human development were often too difficult for us to achieve. In many cases, our progression was deliberately retarded and distorted by our abusers. more >>

Creativity and the Dissociative Patient: Puppets, Narrative, and Art in the Treatment of Survivors of Childhood Trauma
by Lani Alaine Gerity

From Book News, Inc.
Shows that puppetmaking, incorporating both art and narrative, provides an ideal vehicle for therapeutic work with survivors of childhood trauma, especially those with dissociative symptoms. Descriptions of group work with dissociative patients reveal a continuing sense of wonder as patients integrate self and body and release themselves from the trauma of their pasts. Discussion of the theoretical framework for this work encompasses theories from the arts therapies and psychiatry. The author worked with dissociative adults for many years. She currently practices art therapy in Ontario, Canada. Distributed by Taylor and Francis. — Copyright © 1999 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved Book News, Inc.®, Portland, Oregon

Multiple Selves, Multiple Voices: Working With Trauma, Violation, and Dissociation (The Wiley Series in Clinical Psychology)
by Phil Mollon

Book Description
The book draws upon the exciting and illuminating understanding of trauma and dissociation that has developed within the last decade and shows how this can transform our view of many severe personality disorders. MPD is presented as a disorder based upon trauma and pretense – a pretense which structures the personality. The author explores the implications of working with personalities structured around trauma and pretense. The many complex and bewildering aspects of the therapeutic process are discussed.
