Excellent, but Please change the narrator.

Excellent, but Please change the narrator. Great for people on the dissociative spectrum and clinicians. However, the narrator was torture to listen to.

Very insightful!

I've lived with OSDD my whole life, and while I have some reservations about the material, I think this is probably on of the better approaches I've heard. To any therapist/relative/etc, if you re not already well versed with DID I would suggest adopting this information till you get a handle on things.

Good Beginner Treatment Reference

One of the best beginner guides to treating DID out there. Would love to see a sequel at a deeper level; detailing more about integration, the processing of memories via EMDR, and building tolerance of knowledge between alters. Performance was good, but would have been better in my option to have dual readers for the many client-therapist dialogues in this book. I very much appreciate Ross’s neutral (but supportive) approach as the underlying tone of treatment of the disorder.

A must listen if you are a serious therapist.

This book was precise with relevant explanation on each point made. I would recommend it to all medical and mental health practitioners. I rated it four (4) stars all around because it couldn’t have been any better, period. Thank you Dr. Ross and Mr. Pilot.

Highly Effective & Practical Advice

This book was really helpful. I loved that it wasn't filled with unnecessary fluff, but got right to point and gave practical advice with lots of examples. It has helped me in my professional life greatly (I am a mental health clinician and specialize in trauma). The author seems well informed, very experienced, and has a deep compassion for people who struggle with fragmented selves. I learned tips to help me treat people with DID and basically, anyone with PTSD who struggles with some level of fragmentation of themselves.

Earth-shattering Theory and Therapy

Sorry for they extreme headline, yet it is nevertheless true. Dr Ross treats "schizophrenia" as DID, "voices" as dissociated personalities, voices to be spoken with and negotiated with, instead of drugged into brain-damage. Have you ever heard any news report, school textbook or medical book describe this technique? Of course not, they are usually financed by the pharmaceutical industry that demands $3,500 per single monthly injection of antipsychotic, that rarely makes voices go away but often causes permanent extrapyramidal seizures, that insurance companies refuse to pay for so drs refuse to diagnose or treat. Dr Ross also describes how "PTSD" is successfully treated as DID in 90% of cases. This book, and presumably Dr Ross' other books that delve into more detail on this illness, like Satanic ritual abuse and military mindcontrol, offer hope to the hopeless and their exhausted loved ones. I purchased both the book and the audiobook, pleased with both, since by necessity I require a practical working knowlege to deal living with a friend who is currently locked in solitary confinement in prison, due to another near-fatal DID event from a long series of events, due to the most extreme child trauma. 49 of 50 drs have refused to help her, they just use her as an ATM, jails and prison torture her for profit. The 1 ER dr who did help her only gave her a forced Haldol injection that wore off in a couple days, yet caused extrapyramidal side effect. I have met several women diagnosed "schizophrenic" and/or DID, all "abused" by pedophiles, I dare say this is epidemic. Statistics are shocking how many women, and men, were "abused" sexually as children. Perhaps this book should be required reading for the nation?

Good Book for Patients and Therapists

Did a great job giving patient examples and real life situations that have worked for others in the past. Would have liked the audio version to provide separate voices when doing patient and therapist depictions.
