Publisher's Summary

Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors integrates a neurobiologically informed understanding of trauma, dissociation, and attachment with a practical approach to treatment, all communicated in straightforward language accessible to both client and therapist. Listeners will be exposed to a model that emphasizes "resolution" - a transformation in the relationship to one's self, replacing shame, self-loathing, and assumptions of guilt with compassionate acceptance. Its unique interventions have been adapted from a number of cutting-edge therapeutic approaches, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, mindfulness-based therapies, and clinical hypnosis. 

Listeners will finish the chapters of Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors with a solid grasp of therapeutic approaches to traumatic attachment, working with undiagnosed dissociative symptoms and disorders, integrating "right brain-to-right brain" treatment methods, and much more. Most of all, they will come away with tools for helping clients create an internal sense of safety and compassionate connection to even their most dis-owned selves.

The recording is of very poor quality. Choppy.

this is a poor recording. it is very choppy and the tone of voice is reminiscent of phone robot.

Extremely helpful, especially in therapy.

I have read many books on trauma, this is in my top ten.


Very insightful, helped me understand myself and my behaviours a bit more. For the first time in my life I finally see that I need to develop more self-compassion and less criticism of myself. I'd recommend this as a must read for any trauma survivor.
My only negative comment would be regarding the narrator- absolutely awful, but the subject matter was engrossing enough that I was able, for the most part, to move past it:)

Great for trauma survivors

This book gave me so much perspective into my own traumatic life events. It gave practical ways on how how I can handle my responses and view of myself better in the future. Point being - self compassion for your parts is very important. Thanks Janina!

Transformative Information

Even though I had some information about Internal Family Systems and familiar with Richard Schwartz, the approach Janina Fisher employs and the logical way she presents how to connect with and approach "Parts" work made it incredibly accessible. I am clearly able to see how I can apply this to my own therapeutic journey and practice.

A lot of great information

It's a lot of information to get through and to digest. Some parts are difficult to get through if your reading this for self-help. The reward of understanding yourself so much better is certainly worth it.

I was very annoyed with the narration at first, but the content was well worth it. I would say that the voice is over-synthesized or something. it comes off as though siri or Google is reading you a story at times

too dry and technical

This book is full of psychobabble. I've been studying psychology all my life and I'm pretty comfortable with the jargon but this book made me feel like I was at a tech conference. It has a lot of useful info but this is NOT a self-help book.

Helpful for a person who lives with DID and their family members

This book was very helpful in understanding the experience of DID. It was even more helpful in proving a path to navigate life and treatment. Having a common language to describe the experience on the side of the DID person and to hear the experience and understand it from the family member or friends perspective.

The therapy described was incredibly helpful as well. I highly recommend this book!

Just stop searching and read this book!!!!

I can't tell you how spot on this is for anyone who has childhood trauma and is trying to figure themselves out.
This is it.
It explains everything.
Knowledge is power.

wow, it's literally a computer talking.

Only made it a few sentences in. It's a shame they didn't spend the money on a better narrator.
