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.

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!

Eye opening

Such an interesting subject! One that, as a trauma survivor, rings very close to home. Long listen, but worth every minute.

Potentially Dangerous

You can get a good feeling for this system by reading the appendices that summarize the methods. I am rather dubious regarding disassociative and multiple-personality disorders. This book seems to be a formula to create fragmented selves. The practitioner is encouraged to teach clients about "parts" presenting labelled diagrams of parts for reference, and "reframing" client language into "the language of parts" including the overcoming of client resistance with persistent reframing and parts education. Clients are encouraged (even if resistant) to "unblend" into distinct parts. Oddly there is no description of re-blending or integrating. I am particularly dubious of client reports of ritual abuse, which, it seems, comes up in Fisher's practice. Although such encouragements and reframing (without great care) have been shown to alter or implant memories, I found no advice here regarding avoiding Iatrogenesis. I had friends in Scientology that through intense "clearing" exercises began to see and report on thetans (little alien beings) seen by their auditor on my friend's body. The teaching, reframing, and memories described in this book reminded me of such experiences. The chapter on Self Harm was the only thing in the book I found useful. That chapter was not very "parts" related and explains how self harm are a result of dealing with trauma.
