The Haunted Self book available online to read

Postby KitMcDaydream » Thu Jun 10, 2021 6:59 am

Hi

We found this book online and it seems to be the pdf version of the full book (in English). It is on 'Docdroid' - never heard of before!

https://www.docdroid.net/arPAtHT/van-de ... d-self-pdf

Maybe useful for those who would like to have it on a tablet device rather than have the book. There is a download option at the top. not sure if you get asked to pay if you choose to download but you seem to be able to read it from the browser for free.

It looks a bit heavy going for people new to all the terminology who don't know it all yet but those of you with more technical knowledge about DID may find it an easier read! (we've passed it onto Kit to read for us!)

Another useful ressource is this one: https://www.isst-d.org/wp-content/uploa ... ED2011.pdf

It is the Guidelines for treatment of DID in adults, by the ISSTD. (International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation)

The Haunted Self is an excellent resource! we have it in hardcover as well as its accompanying workbook, Coping with Trauma Related Dissociation - Skills Training for Patients and Therapists. not sure if the workbook is available anywhere for free.

by the same authors, Treating Trauma Related Dissociation - A Practical Integrative Approach, seems to be intended for therapists specifically.

since we are talking books...
one of the authors of the Haunted Self, Ellert Nijenhuis, wrote The Trauma Trinity.
Book 2 is a practical guide to integrative DID therapy.
this is what we have and what is most common in western europe. it is a good read after knowing The Haunted Self.

Just a modly note to be careful with PDFs- they supposedly can be vehicles for malware, especially if you're running Windows (what can't, when you're running Windows?). I'd recommend scanning anything downloaded, or reading it from the browser.
Tell someone you love them today, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also confusing and terrifying.

We do not delete posts.
Let it go.
Without (forum) rules, we all might as well be up in a tree flinging our crap at each other.

good point, though we haven't used 'windows' for years. Have Mac which we were told was like 'Fort Knox' compared to Windows and was rarely targeted in the past. However we have noticed that now many people use iPad's and stuff and more people having Mac's that hackers are getting more experienced at getting malware onto Mac's.

Janina Fisher's Healing the fragmented selves of trauma survivors. Overcoming internal self-alienation does a lot of psycho-education regarding the neurological phenomenon behind dissociation. She also addresses the inner conflicts between opposite survival mechanisms and attachment needs. The "clinical pictures" she gives to illustrate it all are very clear and easy to understand.

IMO it is a good "beginners book" for all trauma related stuff since it does not focus too much on complex dissociation (OSDD, DID) and more on what are the effects of trauma related dissociation in the everyday life.

Just adding, many books are downloadable in several formats on zLibrary https://nl1lib.org/ and articles too https://booksc.org/. Psychology students use this site a lot so you will pretty much find everything on it which has been published recently or is of importance to the field. You can download max 5 books per day for free.

But, I cannot guarantee it is 100% safe. And ofcourse, it is not considered legal to freely distribute ebooks or articles which have to otherwise be paid for 8)
