From Google Books: "This book offers a practical introduction to PTSD and psychological debriefing, and outlines an enhanced model of PD: 'Emotional Decompression'. Structured like a deep-sea dive, it incorporates carefully planned safety stops for discussion and explanation on the way back to the 'surface' to avoid getting 'the bends'. The book presents a range of recovery models, from the 'simple' models developed by Williams and Horowitz to the more complex 'Snakes and Ladders' model developed by the author."

You'll experience the strangeness and fascination of one woman's rare affliction-and travel with her on her long, ultimately triumphant journey back to wholeness."

She decided to give therapy another try. And after a few sessions, Lynn Wilson, an experienced psychiatric social worker, was shocked to discover that Joan had MPD--Multiple Personality Disorder. And as she came to know Joan's distinct selves, Lynn uncovered a nightmarish pattern of emotional and physical abuse, including rape and incest, that nearly succeeded in smothering the artistic and intellectual gifts of this amazing young woman."
