books/resources on DID

Postby angel123 » Sun Sep 04, 2011 11:00 am

what are good books or sources about the basics of DID for someone new to DID that concentrate on how systems work especially covert/secretive systems...how do DID people feel(who do not know they have DID),what do they experience....
it's not important that it covers treatment or how to connect/communicate to other alters or how to work with the system.....

Breaking Free, My life with Dissociative Identity Disorder. I have never read it, but I skimmed through it, and it's about some famous sports guy with DID. I'm pretty sure he just talks about his life and how he realized his problem.

Such a book is hard to find!

Sipra's book is probably the best for this. It's title is Treating DID. It's a little older than my other 2 favorites, but it hits more of what you are wanting. It has become my favorite book on DID and its not hard to understand like E. Howells book.

We are reviewing 2 books right now in the group that might be of interest to you. So far we are not doing the book above. I think I am the only one here that has read it.

Here are some other books that you might like as well.

There is one book that I loved the first chapter, but then it just became a collection of feelings and poems and such from those with DID. That is on that list too, if that is what you are looking for. Other than the first chapter I did not like the book.
