    Pediatric Radiology: Practical Imaging Evaluation of Infants and Children []  2020-10-18 18:21

    As a radiology resident trying to learn pediatric radiology I have found this textbook provides a comprehensive review of all the necessary pediatric topics. It has perfect imaging with pathological correlations. The book is very well organized and simple to understand. I have found that the detailed explanations have helped clarify subjects that I have been confused about. I also think this is an perfect resource for preparation for the pediatric section of the boards for radiology trainees. The pediatric radiology fellows that I know have found this to useful for their CAQ preparation for the pediatric radiology subspecialty.

    As a pediatrician, I was looking for a book which includes clinical info and patient management with corresponding imaging findings. And, finally I found the book! I am extremely impressed with this one. It has everything. Relevant clinical information, corresponding imaging findings, and up to date management info are all included. I also loved the gross and histological pathological correlations included in this book. It was definitely worth every penny that I spent on this book. Strongly recommended for physicians looking for single volume pediatric imaging reference book in their office for everyday management of their patients.

    This Narrow Space: A Pediatric Oncologist, His Jewish, Muslim, and Christian Patients, and a Hospital in Jerusalem []  2020-4-3 19:10

    I just finished reading Dr. Waldman’s book moments ago. His experiences and thought processes resonated very strongly for me. For too long, medicine has undervalued the human touch and the critical value of palliative care. The distinction of providing palliative care concurrently with actively caring for a patient exemplifies quality and complete care . This is a book a lot of need to read. Thank you Dr. Waldman for being a visionary and staying on your path. Hadassah lost a unique leader and opportunity to lead in this necessary direction. What a shame.

    Why would I wish to read about an Israeli-American pediatric oncologist? Because you learn hard, important questions about life and death. Surprisingly, just learning is philosophically, spiritually and practically helpful. Read the book and you will see.

    This memoir is written by a pediatric oncologist who moves to Israel to work in the Hadassah hospital. He experiences a lot of ambiguity in his relationships with patients, parents and co workers he has visited Israel but now he is a citizen. He experiences ambiguity I relating to patients, families,co workers and in adjusting to life in a various country. I rarely give 5 stars. This book deserves it!

    This Narrow Space: A Pediatric Oncologist, His Jewish, Muslim, and Christian Patients, and a Hospital in Jerusalem []  2020-4-3 19:10

    There are memoirs, and then there are memoirs. "This Narrow Space: A Pediatric Oncologist, His Jewish, Muslim, and Christian Patients, and a Hospital In Jerusalem" falls into the category "and then there are memoirs."The author, Elisha Waldman, has written a memoir that is both sobering and rewarding as he takes us inside a Pediatric Oncologist Department at a Jewish Hospital in Jerusalem named Hadassah. Dr. Waldman, an American Jew, with powerful family and religious ties to Israel relocates to Israel to work at the Hospital where the patients and the staff are a mixture of Jews, Muslims, and Christians and together they form a unit that works together to support and help kids of all religions who are suffering from not good cancers. While they navigate collectively to support all the kids and their parents and relatives at all the stages of treatment, and in some cases simply to alleviate the pain and create patients as comfortable as possible who are at the end of life, the stage and politics and violence outside the hospital depict a picture so disturbing and horrifying that you wonder if there is any humanity left in the warring factions: factions who represent a little minority of the Arab and the Jewish populations but nevertheless make devastating effects and consequences for families seeking support for their sick Waldman's memoir might be the best in your face reality of what goes on in this part of the globe that I have ever read. It is an engrossing piece of work and, throughout I found myself giving thanks to the brave men and women who work in a field that on its best days are difficult and on its worst days it could have you questioning everything you ever believed is is a piece of work that is going to stay with me for a very long time. It is simply amazing.

    Fundamentals of Pediatric Imaging (Fundamentals of Radiology) []  2020-1-31 2:21

    The previous edition of this book comes highly recommended, not only from my attending- but from my peers and almost all radiology residents out there! I thought i'd spring for the fresh edition... and yes, i love the easy-read "prose" text (in the light of helms skeletal radiology and osborne's brain)- my only gripe? The photo quality. It's terrible. No, it's beyond terrible. The photos are pointless... cannot create out any info whatsoever. I'm left having to search supplemental photos online, corresponding to the topic. For a radiology resident, in particular, photos are tantamount. Not sure if the photos were better in 1st edition... but I am using this simply as a text-heavy book.

    I am a nuclear physician with a unique interest in head and neck. Since we got a PET/MR scanner I need to learn is is the only comprehensive textbook about head and neck cancer that I found. I have not yet perused the entire book but the chapter on nasopharyngeal cancer is EXCELLENT - some of the most lucid writing on cancer imaging. Amazing and well-explained photo examples. Highly recommended!

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2020-9-24 22:25

    Really life changing read so far... (not finished yet)... BUT be warned... while reading this is completely changing how I understand myself and some things - it is majorly triggering me. I've definitely sunk into a triggered depression... that is NOT to say anything negative about the book... in fact - shows how strong the content is... only mention it as a warning for readers because I was completely unprepared for that element and have found myself struggling now without having prepared myself properly to cope.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2020-9-24 22:25

    I am in recovery from DID and I had amazing hopes for this book but it didn't really support me much beyond a primary understanding of why I was suffering as I was. It's incredibly psychologically based, and seems to imply that we can change the reactions in the limbic system in our brain through a psychological approach. While this may work to a certain degree over a very long period of time, I feel that it's missing the main point: trauma is essentially in the limbic system in the brain, and also held in the body. Most of our mind reactions are too slow to compensate for the immediate triggering that takes put before we even realise it in our brain.I personally recommend two other books as being far more useful. Pat Ogden's  Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)  is an awesome resource that works through what I hoped to gain from this book and didn't. David Berceli's  The Revolutionary Trauma Release Process: Transcend Your Toughest Times  has also given me easy exercises I can do at home which have massively reduced my extremely heightened startle response and released lots of trauma residues from my body. I've detailed how these books have helped me in the reviews I've posted on them.

    This book is amazing. I would read chapter after chapter and say, "My life is in this book!" I didn't know that other people had the same issues that I did, and that people actually researched these types of problems! It created me feel amazing to know that I was not the only one experiencing these things.I picked up this book because it was mentioned in Pete Walker's "Complex PTSD" book as a work helpful for those who have "freeze" as one of their main responses to e book is written in a very nonjudgmental way, which is helpful for those of us who are easily triggered by criticism. The chapters are very short, which is amazing for people who are easily overwhelmed. I learned a lot about myself through this book and was able to develop some skills to support myself as I heal from complex PTSD.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists []  2020-11-14 20:22

    I can't say enough about this book. I had gotten very discouraged working with traumatized women and addicts. The first client I used this book with had been stuck for some time and was sinking deeper and deeper into despair, hopelessness, panic, anxiety and depression. She was also morbidly obese. After one session with this manual, she began to have hope, she engaged very actively in the treatment. One of the awesome things I see about working with these methods is that memories start to surface spontaneously, as the client is ready, and within the context of the therapy, they feel safe to process and share the memories. In the case of this particular client, there was a facet of her abuse that haunted her immensely but she couldn't say why. By the third session, a memory had surfaced which explained it, and she was able to cope with it and process it in session. I found it very interesting that the memory surfaced as a film on a screen with no sounds or smells, which is something the book indicates will happen. This client, as well as others, are enormously reassured and encouraged by the fact that suddenly everything makes sense, they are not the only ones who feel this way, and that there are therapists who have dozens of experience working with these symptoms, to the point that they were able to write a book that both explains and offers hope. I also work with a lot of addicts and have become convinced that almost all addicts suffer from DDNOS, and I believe that this treatment should be a part of any successful substance abuse treatment. When I introduce some of these ideas in a group of addicts, I have the full attention of every person, male and female. They begin to ask questions an things start to fall into put for them. This work is so miraculous that I have purchased a pile of books all dealing with Polyvagal Theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Viseral Sensory Neuroscience, etc, to further my understanding of how the viscera reacts to trauma, and the role of neuroleptic not and interception in triggering people to have panic, anxiety, and to carry out behaviors such as self harming, eating disorders and substance abuse. Clients are awed to search out that there is an respond to the formerly mysterious creature that controls them and devours them. I am continuing to read and study, and in the meantime I am reaching my clients in a method that I have never been able to before.

    I was diagnosed with D.I.D. almost a year ago although some clinicians would say I fit better into DDNOS because of the degree of co-consciousness. I have read "Amongst Ourselves" and found it very helpful. Most D.I.D. books I have read spend a amazing deal of time on symptoms similar to full switching and lost time. This book addresses the problems behind that (and a whole lot more) in a method that does not alienate more co-conscious systems. The book is very readable. Very insightful. Very useful for professionals, supporters and those with D.I.D.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2021-1-8 19:40

    I had actual tears of recognition in my eyes after starting this book; six months later, upon completing it, I feel like I have reached a milestone in my recovery from abuse. I felt understood by this book in a method that I never have before with a psychology or therapy text, except for Judith Herman's Trauma and Recovery. This book is absolutely invaluable for someone with complex trauma in childhood, who used dissociation as their main defense mechanism.I am somewhere on the dissociative continuum (I had symptoms resembling DID in adolescence), though it wasn't identified as the source of my mental health issues until mid-adulthood, when I finally sought treatment for abuse and trauma rather than depression alone, and then everything changed for the better. I started reading this as a follow-up to The Stranger in the Mirror (an perfect overview of dissociation), not expecting to obtain much out of this one, as therapy workbooks tend to be challenging for me. But I found myself highlighting every 's a gentler alternative to works that focus on violence (many of which have helped, but those are hard to read when triggered). It's also created grounding and mindfulness exercises more accessible for me, since these are written expressly with a dissociative/traumatized reader in mind. The language, too, is so clear and validating. Some chapters might be more triggering, depending on your experience-- I was surprised that the relational items was harder for me-- so personally I recommend skipping a chapter or section if you feel like you're "fighting" with it, then returning to it later on. I had amazing luck with this approach. And don't be afraid to spend more time on a challenging chapter. You'll obtain out of the book what you place into it.I want I had encountered this book years ago, but I'm just so glad to have it now. Best $17 I've ever spent. I wish to tell the writers thank you.

    As a therapist specializing in the field of complex PTSD, dissociation, and Dissociative Identity Disorder, I highly recommend this book. It's amazing as a stand alone book but works best when used with a therapist who understands and is trained in treating dissociation. It's necessary to understand what this book is. This book will not cure your trauma, no book can! It's a book designed to support you understand why you are the method you are, give you skills to support yourself, your ability to cope, improve your everyday life and your relationships with others. This book is a large gift, and is really the gold standard. Actually resolving the trauma itself and healing it--which is causing your symptoms in the first place--takes a therapist trained in something to do that such as EMDR, Somatic Experience, Sensorimotor Therapy, or Internal Family Systems.

It's incredibly psychologically based, and seems to imply that we can change the reactions in the limbic system in our brain through a psychological approach. While this may work to a certain degree over a very long period of time, I feel that it's missing the main point: trauma is essentially in the limbic system in the brain, and also held in the body. Most of our mind reactions are too slow to compensate for the immediate triggering that takes put before we even realise it in our brain.I personally recommend two other books as being far more useful. Pat Ogden's  Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)  is an awesome resource that works through what I hoped to gain from this book and didn't. David Berceli's  The Revolutionary Trauma Release Process: Transcend Your Toughest Times  has also given me easy exercises I can do at home which have massively reduced my extremely heightened startle response and released lots of trauma residues from my body. I've detailed how these books have helped me in the reviews I've posted on them.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2021-3-5 19:42

    This is one very huge textbook for therapists treating trauma similar psychological disorders: from occasional flashbacks to real dissociative disorders. The difference being that both patient and therapist are addressed and given examples and teachings to support powerful boundaries (re)’s taken me months to read this book. Each chapter challenges even the most smart person to learn and incorporate skills for both life skills and emotional tools to stay show and healthy. I like that it seems to accept that humans are flawed. It is how we recognize and answer to past a/o show stressors, dissociative thoughts and behaviors and healthier sleep that hold dissociative patients stuck, because these old patterns are safe. To be a fully functioning person in the best sense, a book like this can give you life skills and roadmaps and to not be scared to accept the support out the authors say, this book, and this field are works-in-process. Overall, as slow as the read was, in this reviewers opinion it will support someone without “trapping” them into a set treatment. It would be a amazing book for Masters level counselors begin to learning fresh things. 5/5

    Really life changing read so far... (not finished yet)... BUT be warned... while reading this is completely changing how I understand myself and some things - it is majorly triggering me. I've definitely sunk into a triggered depression... that is NOT to say anything negative about the book... in fact - shows how strong the content is... only mention it as a warning for readers because I was completely unprepared for that element and have found myself struggling now without having prepared myself properly to cope.

    This book is amazing. It is the excellent mix of explaination/education and exercises. I have found it to be very helpful both in having what is going on for me so well described and having tactics to heal that actually work. A must read for folks struggling with complex trauma - it is not just for folks with DID.

    I had actual tears of recognition in my eyes after starting this book; six months later, upon completing it, I feel like I have reached a milestone in my recovery from abuse. I felt understood by this book in a method that I never have before with a psychology or therapy text, except for Judith Herman's Trauma and Recovery. This book is absolutely invaluable for someone with complex trauma in childhood, who used dissociation as their main defense mechanism.I am somewhere on the dissociative continuum (I had symptoms resembling DID in adolescence), though it wasn't identified as the source of my mental health issues until mid-adulthood, when I finally sought treatment for abuse and trauma rather than depression alone, and then everything changed for the better. I started reading this as a follow-up to The Stranger in the Mirror (an perfect overview of dissociation), not expecting to obtain much out of this one, as therapy workbooks tend to be challenging for me. But I found myself highlighting every 's a gentler alternative to works that focus on violence (many of which have helped, but those are hard to read when triggered). It's also created grounding and mindfulness exercises more accessible for me, since these are written expressly with a dissociative/traumatized reader in mind. The language, too, is so clear and validating. Some chapters might be more triggering, depending on your experience-- I was surprised that the relational items was harder for me-- so personally I recommend skipping a chapter or section if you feel like you're "fighting" with it, then returning to it later on. I had amazing luck with this approach. And don't be afraid to spend more time on a challenging chapter. You'll obtain out of the book what you place into it.I want I had encountered this book years ago, but I'm just so glad to have it now. Best $17 I've ever spent. I wish to tell the writers thank you.

    If you and your therapist have found your diagnosis to contain dissociation, this is an incredibly useful book. I often pined for a practical tutorial to doing the items of everyday life in light of my propensity to location out. I thought I was just a procrastinator- but none of those self-help books came even close to helping. I even thought I had ADD/ADHD and bought some "how to stay organized" books for folks with those issues. When I finally understood that I was dissociating, it felt just like a fancy label and I didn't know what to do to obtain through the tough times of the day short of "curing" myself. Until one day it occurred to me that there must be ways to work around dissociations even before you can eliminate them from your life. So I googled "self care routine for dissociation" and I found this incredibly helpful manual. And it really is a manual. There are broader ideas as well but I search the minutiae of the instructions very helpful and comforting. It sometimes feels like re-learning how to be an adult, this time without the trauma. Large thanks to the authors for writing this book.

    As a therapist specializing in the field of complex PTSD, dissociation, and Dissociative Identity Disorder, I highly recommend this book. It's amazing as a stand alone book but works best when used with a therapist who understands and is trained in treating dissociation. It's necessary to understand what this book is. This book will not cure your trauma, no book can! It's a book designed to support you understand why you are the method you are, give you skills to support yourself, your ability to cope, improve your everyday life and your relationships with others. This book is a large gift, and is really the gold standard. Actually resolving the trauma itself and healing it--which is causing your symptoms in the first place--takes a therapist trained in something to do that such as EMDR, Somatic Experience, Sensorimotor Therapy, or Internal Family Systems.

    I am in recovery from DID and I had amazing hopes for this book but it didn't really support me much beyond a primary understanding of why I was suffering as I was. It's incredibly psychologically based, and seems to imply that we can change the reactions in the limbic system in our brain through a psychological approach. While this may work to a certain degree over a very long period of time, I feel that it's missing the main point: trauma is essentially in the limbic system in the brain, and also held in the body. Most of our mind reactions are too slow to compensate for the immediate triggering that takes put before we even realise it in our brain.I personally recommend two other books as being far more useful. Pat Ogden's  Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)  is an awesome resource that works through what I hoped to gain from this book and didn't.

    I was diagnosed with D.I.D. almost a year ago although some clinicians would say I fit better into DDNOS because of the degree of co-consciousness. I have read "Amongst Ourselves" and found it very helpful. Most D.I.D. books I have read spend a amazing deal of time on symptoms similar to full switching and lost time. This book addresses the problems behind that (and a whole lot more) in a method that does not alienate more co-conscious systems. The book is very readable. Very insightful. Very useful for professionals, supporters and those with D.I.D.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2021-3-5 19:42

    I can't say enough about this book. I had gotten very discouraged working with traumatized women and addicts. The first client I used this book with had been stuck for some time and was sinking deeper and deeper into despair, hopelessness, panic, anxiety and depression. She was also morbidly obese. After one session with this manual, she began to have hope, she engaged very actively in the treatment. One of the awesome things I see about working with these methods is that memories start to surface spontaneously, as the client is ready, and within the context of the therapy, they feel safe to process and share the memories. In the case of this particular client, there was a facet of her abuse that haunted her immensely but she couldn't say why. By the third session, a memory had surfaced which explained it, and she was able to cope with it and process it in session. I found it very interesting that the memory surfaced as a film on a screen with no sounds or smells, which is something the book indicates will happen. This client, as well as others, are enormously reassured and encouraged by the fact that suddenly everything makes sense, they are not the only ones who feel this way, and that there are therapists who have dozens of experience working with these symptoms, to the point that they were able to write a book that both explains and offers hope. I also work with a lot of addicts and have become convinced that almost all addicts suffer from DDNOS, and I believe that this treatment should be a part of any successful substance abuse treatment. When I introduce some of these ideas in a group of addicts, I have the full attention of every person, male and female. They begin to ask questions an things start to fall into put for them. This work is so miraculous that I have purchased a pile of books all dealing with Polyvagal Theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Viseral Sensory Neuroscience, etc, to further my understanding of how the viscera reacts to trauma, and the role of neuroleptic not and interception in triggering people to have panic, anxiety, and to carry out behaviors such as self harming, eating disorders and substance abuse. Clients are awed to search out that there is an respond to the formerly mysterious creature that controls them and devours them. I am continuing to read and study, and in the meantime I am reaching my clients in a method that I have never been able to before.

I didn't know that other people had the same issues that I did, and that people actually researched these types of problems! It created me feel amazing to know that I was not the only one experiencing these things.I picked up this book because it was mentioned in Pete Walker's "Complex PTSD" book as a work helpful for those who have "freeze" as one of their main responses to e book is written in a very nonjudgmental way, which is helpful for those of us who are easily triggered by criticism. The chapters are very short, which is amazing for people who are easily overwhelmed. I learned a lot about myself through this book and was able to develop some skills to support myself as I heal from complex PTSD.

    I love the easy language. I have her other book as well for psychotherapists. This book is for lay people. I l appreciate both books but I love this one.I love that it dives right in and doesn't "dumb it down" for lay people.I love that it provides exercises.I don't think I know anyone with full-blown dissociation, unless they hide it. However I search a lot of things useful for myself and those I assist, because we all have "voices," like that voice that says we "should" do this or that, also an inner mom, an inner dad, an inner jesus or religious authority, an inner poor boy or "party girl," etc. For those of us who are not fully dissociative, I consider these not "parts" of self but perspectives. We harbor a dominant perspective and multiple other perspectives, including the spiritual or compassionate perspective which doesn't always obtain a voice. So everything we learn about dissociation, also helps the rest of us to search a harmonious balance!

Some chapters might be more triggering, depending on your experience-- I was surprised that the relational items was harder for me-- so personally I recommend skipping a chapter or section if you feel like you're "fighting" with it, then returning to it later on. I had amazing luck with this approach. And don't be afraid to spend more time on a challenging chapter.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists []  2020-11-14 20:22

    I was diagnosed with D.I.D. almost a year ago although some clinicians would say I fit better into DDNOS because of the degree of co-consciousness. I have read "Amongst Ourselves" and found it very helpful. Most D.I.D. books I have read spend a amazing deal of time on symptoms similar to full switching and lost time. This book addresses the problems behind that (and a whole lot more) in a method that does not alienate more co-conscious systems. The book is very readable. Very insightful. Very useful for professionals, supporters and those with D.I.D.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2021-1-8 19:40

    This book is amazing. I would read chapter after chapter and say, "My life is in this book!" I didn't know that other people had the same issues that I did, and that people actually researched these types of problems! It created me feel amazing to know that I was not the only one experiencing these things.I picked up this book because it was mentioned in Pete Walker's "Complex PTSD" book as a work helpful for those who have "freeze" as one of their main responses to e book is written in a very nonjudgmental way, which is helpful for those of us who are easily triggered by criticism. The chapters are very short, which is amazing for people who are easily overwhelmed. I learned a lot about myself through this book and was able to develop some skills to support myself as I heal from complex PTSD.

    If you and your therapist have found your diagnosis to contain dissociation, this is an incredibly useful book. I often pined for a practical tutorial to doing the items of everyday life in light of my propensity to location out. I thought I was just a procrastinator- but none of those self-help books came even close to helping. I even thought I had ADD/ADHD and bought some "how to stay organized" books for folks with those issues. When I finally understood that I was dissociating, it felt just like a fancy label and I didn't know what to do to obtain through the tough times of the day short of "curing" myself. Until one day it occurred to me that there must be ways to work around dissociations even before you can eliminate them from your life. So I googled "self care routine for dissociation" and I found this incredibly helpful manual. And it really is a manual. There are broader ideas as well but I search the minutiae of the instructions very helpful and comforting. It sometimes feels like re-learning how to be an adult, this time without the trauma. Large thanks to the authors for writing this book.

    I love the easy language. I have her other book as well for psychotherapists. This book is for lay people. I l appreciate both books but I love this one.I love that it dives right in and doesn't "dumb it down" for lay people.I love that it provides exercises.I don't think I know anyone with full-blown dissociation, unless they hide it. However I search a lot of things useful for myself and those I assist, because we all have "voices," like that voice that says we "should" do this or that, also an inner mom, an inner dad, an inner jesus or religious authority, an inner poor boy or "party girl," etc. For those of us who are not fully dissociative, I consider these not "parts" of self but perspectives. We harbor a dominant perspective and multiple other perspectives, including the spiritual or compassionate perspective which doesn't always obtain a voice. So everything we learn about dissociation, also helps the rest of us to search a harmonious balance!

    Really life changing read so far... (not finished yet)... BUT be warned... while reading this is completely changing how I understand myself and some things - it is majorly triggering me. I've definitely sunk into a triggered depression... that is NOT to say anything negative about the book... in fact - shows how strong the content is... only mention it as a warning for readers because I was completely unprepared for that element and have found myself struggling now without having prepared myself properly to cope.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2021-4-6 21:32

    I am in recovery from DID and I had amazing hopes for this book but it didn't really support me much beyond a primary understanding of why I was suffering as I was. It's incredibly psychologically based, and seems to imply that we can change the reactions in the limbic system in our brain through a psychological approach. While this may work to a certain degree over a very long period of time, I feel that it's missing the main point: trauma is essentially in the limbic system in the brain, and also held in the body. Most of our mind reactions are too slow to compensate for the immediate triggering that takes put before we even realise it in our brain.I personally recommend two other books as being far more useful. Pat Ogden's  Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)  is an awesome resource that works through what I hoped to gain from this book and didn't. David Berceli's  The Revolutionary Trauma Release Process: Transcend Your Toughest Times  has also given me easy exercises I can do at home which have massively reduced my extremely heightened startle response and released lots of trauma residues from my body. I've detailed how these books have helped me in the reviews I've posted on them.

    I have DID and felt overwhelmed by this book. The price is Large, the physical size of the book is Huge (textbook size) and there are a very Huge number of questions (100-200?) for private reflection, most containing the trigger word “you.” The book omits the role of involuntary physical reactions...like sudden changes in vision and hearing... It also makes broad assumptions, specifically, that “parts” are aware of one another, exist in the same time and space, and actively seek integration. It offers no guidance as to how to process concurrent and radically various reactions to environmental stimuli in true life situations (for example, while conversing with others or at work). Even the primary grounding techniques suggested are impossible when you truly dissociate as some “parts” are unaware of the grounding activities and others don’t wish to participate. It seems the book is geared toward those who have strongly conflicting ideas and opinions (mild dissociation), not for those who significantly dissociate. Moreover, its premise is that dissociation is primarily a learned psychological response. But to a huge degree it “feels like” an involuntary neurobiological reaction...and the book simply does not address this aspect.

    I can't say enough about this book. I had gotten very discouraged working with traumatized women and addicts. The first client I used this book with had been stuck for some time and was sinking deeper and deeper into despair, hopelessness, panic, anxiety and depression. She was also morbidly obese. After one session with this manual, she began to have hope, she engaged very actively in the treatment. One of the awesome things I see about working with these methods is that memories start to surface spontaneously, as the client is ready, and within the context of the therapy, they feel safe to process and share the memories. In the case of this particular client, there was a facet of her abuse that haunted her immensely but she couldn't say why. By the third session, a memory had surfaced which explained it, and she was able to cope with it and process it in session. I found it very interesting that the memory surfaced as a film on a screen with no sounds or smells, which is something the book indicates will happen. This client, as well as others, are enormously reassured and encouraged by the fact that suddenly everything makes sense, they are not the only ones who feel this way, and that there are therapists who have dozens of experience working with these symptoms, to the point that they were able to write a book that both explains and offers hope. I also work with a lot of addicts and have become convinced that almost all addicts suffer from DDNOS, and I believe that this treatment should be a part of any successful substance abuse treatment. When I introduce some of these ideas in a group of addicts, I have the full attention of every person, male and female. They begin to ask questions an things start to fall into put for them. This work is so miraculous that I have purchased a pile of books all dealing with Polyvagal Theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Viseral Sensory Neuroscience, etc, to further my understanding of how the viscera reacts to trauma, and the role of neuroleptic not and interception in triggering people to have panic, anxiety, and to carry out behaviors such as self harming, eating disorders and substance abuse. Clients are awed to search out that there is an respond to the formerly mysterious creature that controls them and devours them. I am continuing to read and study, and in the meantime I am reaching my clients in a method that I have never been able to before.

    As a therapist specializing in the field of complex PTSD, dissociation, and Dissociative Identity Disorder, I highly recommend this book. It's amazing as a stand alone book but works best when used with a therapist who understands and is trained in treating dissociation. It's necessary to understand what this book is. This book will not cure your trauma, no book can! It's a book designed to support you understand why you are the method you are, give you skills to support yourself, your ability to cope, improve your everyday life and your relationships with others. This book is a large gift, and is really the gold standard. Actually resolving the trauma itself and healing it--which is causing your symptoms in the first place--takes a therapist trained in something to do that such as EMDR, Somatic Experience, Sensorimotor Therapy, or Internal Family Systems.

    This is one very huge textbook for therapists treating trauma similar psychological disorders: from occasional flashbacks to real dissociative disorders. The difference being that both patient and therapist are addressed and given examples and teachings to support powerful boundaries (re)’s taken me months to read this book. Each chapter challenges even the most smart person to learn and incorporate skills for both life skills and emotional tools to stay show and healthy. I like that it seems to accept that humans are flawed. It is how we recognize and answer to past a/o show stressors, dissociative thoughts and behaviors and healthier sleep that hold dissociative patients stuck, because these old patterns are safe. To be a fully functioning person in the best sense, a book like this can give you life skills and roadmaps and to not be scared to accept the support out the authors say, this book, and this field are works-in-process. Overall, as slow as the read was, in this reviewers opinion it will support someone without “trapping” them into a set treatment. It would be a amazing book for Masters level counselors begin to learning fresh things. 5/5

    This book is amazing. I would read chapter after chapter and say, "My life is in this book!" I didn't know that other people had the same issues that I did, and that people actually researched these types of problems! It created me feel amazing to know that I was not the only one experiencing these things.I picked up this book because it was mentioned in Pete Walker's "Complex PTSD" book as a work helpful for those who have "freeze" as one of their main responses to e book is written in a very nonjudgmental way, which is helpful for those of us who are easily triggered by criticism. The chapters are very short, which is amazing for people who are easily overwhelmed. I learned a lot about myself through this book and was able to develop some skills to support myself as I heal from complex PTSD.

    Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) []  2021-4-6 21:28

    I can't say enough about this book. I had gotten very discouraged working with traumatized women and addicts. The first client I used this book with had been stuck for some time and was sinking deeper and deeper into despair, hopelessness, panic, anxiety and depression. She was also morbidly obese. After one session with this manual, she began to have hope, she engaged very actively in the treatment. One of the awesome things I see about working with these methods is that memories start to surface spontaneously, as the client is ready, and within the context of the therapy, they feel safe to process and share the memories. In the case of this particular client, there was a facet of her abuse that haunted her immensely but she couldn't say why. By the third session, a memory had surfaced which explained it, and she was able to cope with it and process it in session. I found it very interesting that the memory surfaced as a film on a screen with no sounds or smells, which is something the book indicates will happen. This client, as well as others, are enormously reassured and encouraged by the fact that suddenly everything makes sense, they are not the only ones who feel this way, and that there are therapists who have dozens of experience working with these symptoms, to the point that they were able to write a book that both explains and offers hope. I also work with a lot of addicts and have become convinced that almost all addicts suffer from DDNOS, and I believe that this treatment should be a part of any successful substance abuse treatment. When I introduce some of these ideas in a group of addicts, I have the full attention of every person, male and female. They begin to ask questions an things start to fall into put for them. This work is so miraculous that I have purchased a pile of books all dealing with Polyvagal Theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Viseral Sensory Neuroscience, etc, to further my understanding of how the viscera reacts to trauma, and the role of neuroleptic not and interception in triggering people to have panic, anxiety, and to carry out behaviors such as self harming, eating disorders and substance abuse. Clients are awed to search out that there is an respond to the formerly mysterious creature that controls them and devours them. I am continuing to read and study, and in the meantime I am reaching my clients in a method that I have never been able to before.

    This book is amazing. I would read chapter after chapter and say, "My life is in this book!" I didn't know that other people had the same issues that I did, and that people actually researched these types of problems! It created me feel amazing to know that I was not the only one experiencing these things.I picked up this book because it was mentioned in Pete Walker's "Complex PTSD" book as a work helpful for those who have "freeze" as one of their main responses to e book is written in a very nonjudgmental way, which is helpful for those of us who are easily triggered by criticism. The chapters are very short, which is amazing for people who are easily overwhelmed. I learned a lot about myself through this book and was able to develop some skills to support myself as I heal from complex PTSD.
