Audiobook lacks access to worksheets

Really insightful book. The audiobook does not include a copy of the many worksheets mentioned, which makes it far less helpful.

Great Except ...

Wonderful, calming narrator. Very useful and clear content.
Not modified for audio. No access to worksheets. Basically says - 'complete exercise for ... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. complete exercise for ... 1, 2, 3, 4.' Those parts are truly useless without the worksheets.
Still recommended, but annoyed.

Great book, title a little misleading.

This book and the guidelines it contains, had helped me managing a patient with diagnosed BPD and a big probability of having also DID. I say the title is quite misleading because the ‘Trauma-Related’ part has predisposed almost everyone who reads it, including my patient and other colleagues, that Trauma-Related Dissociation necessarily has to stem from overtly traumatic experiences like sexual abuse, and not from more subtle kinds of trauma like neglect and excessive parental control and invalidation. Anyway, the book eventually makes that distinction clear, so it doesn’t really matter.

A book about me... us?

I've always felt I was an alien in my own body, just hosting various people to act the way they want. I hear voices in my head, it's my PTSD/DID Doctor (PhD) who recommended I work this book while in treatment with her.

I got the audiobook first in order to decide if it was something worth investing in. the opening introduction rocked my world. I now own the text version and will be starting the process soon.

I only did that because the audiobook is well done, great voice, well written and 100% worth it.

Informative

Great knowledge for someone who has experienced a lot of trauma starting at a young age. Recommended for anyone who wants to get a better understanding of why life an relationships may seem so damn hard because of the terrible experiences they have faced, particularly in childhood but not limited to any trauma one may have experienced in any time period. Happy healing.

Highly recommended for DID patients

I recommend this audio with the text for patients. It covers practical skills and exercises that DID and dissociative patients struggle with on a daily basis.

Amazing material…..extremely helpful!!!

I am in therapy right now to deal with and process multiple traumas.
I’m learning how to manage c-ptsd and trying to come to terms with having a dissociative disorder.
Im trying to get to know my system and parts, while also trying to get all parts, especially the super functioning one(s) to acknowledge that this is our reality and in order to heal and become integrated we must give space to all parts and take ownership that we have this disorder.
I’m able to have the awareness of this all with thanks to my therapist m(who luckily is amazing at what they do) and fundamentally this book.
LIFE CHANGING
If you have or think you have a dissociative disorder this book is a MUST!!!!!!!

What is wrong with the narrator’s voice?

This book actually sounds like it is being narrated by a computer program rather than a human being... the cadence of her speech is jerky, disjointed, and jarring. There is no natural speech rhythm or flow, it sounds like a machine has learned how to speak. It makes it impossible to listen properly and absorb what is being said as this inhuman voice is impossible to process auditory information naturally. Why on earth would they have this person narrate an audiobook??? It seems like a sick joke.
