This book is INVALUABLE for treating DID. It’s straightforward, well-organized, and easily the best resource I’ve found on DID. I can’t understand why it’s out of print. Used copies are available but expensive. However, if you’ve just started working with DID patients and are in need of guidance, it’s well worth the money.
