There are many tried and proven trauma therapy techniques which are effective with such survivors, such as EMDR and fractionated abreaction. As we share information with one another, we are gaining understanding of these abuses. As we gain understanding of dissociative disorders, we learn how to work with complex personality systems. The Top DD study is assessing the effectiveness of such work.

Pretty well all sound schools of therapy teach us not to use suggestive techniques, so we work with what our clients provide to us; we don't tell them what they have experienced. It is up to the survivor or client to determine whether what is coming into his or her mind is real, not up to the therapist. (less)

I did not contribute to this book. That was another Alison Miller, I guess. Would someone please remove it from my books?

“Punishments include such things as flashbacks, flooding of unbearable emotions, painful body memories, flooding of memories in which the survivor perpetrated against others, self-harm, and suicide attempts.”
