A jewel. The author knows her stuff. Multiple examples of origins and manifestations of dissociative identity disorder. Good description of use of hypnosis in the recovery process. Good discussion of factors affecting prognosis. Examples of successful outcome. Suggestions for how to interact with persons affected by the disorder. Excellent discussion raising questions about to what degree our culture and our politicians are affected by dissociative identity disorder and other disorders, and the origins and continuing transmission of those disorders. And, no, this was written long before Trump was elected, but it brings to mind the inconsistencies of Obama, the constitutional scholar who authorized extrajudicial murders, and his rambling, hypnotic, say-nothing speeches. Dissociative?
