If I had to offer one book to teach people what it's really like to live with multiplicity, I would choose this one. . . . I want everyone who knows I have MPD to read this helpful, comprehensive, disturbing, and wonderful book. I want other multiples to read it too, especially those who live in isolation, without contact with other multiples. Pass it on to your supportive friends and relatives. Give it to everyone on your holiday shopping list. -- Moving Forward, November-December 1991
MPD from the Inside Out . . . in many ways serves as a consolidation of what has been shared by MPD patients in their first-person accounts over the last several years. It is a powerful testament to the endurance, resilience, and courage of the human spirit, and a valuable resource for anyone who works in the dissociative disorders field. . . . It is a treasure-trove of powerful and evocative images and accounts that can provide an education immersion in the affective and attitudinal worlds of MPD patients. It is a competent guidebook to these terrains. It can take the reader to places that scientific articles and authoritative texts, however sensitive and eloquent, cannot. Because of its immense potential importance in helping therapists to understand MPD patients, and "walk a mile in their moccasins," its publication is an important event in the dissociative disorders field. -- Dissociation, June 1991
MPD from the Inside Out is a much needed resource for the professional community, victims, and their families/supporters. . . . [It] presents a picture of multiplicity that is both frightening in its graphic presentation of the violence that produces this disorder and hopeful in its tales of recovery and success. The book also implies in its writings a value on the underlying strength and determination and creativity of this population of survivors that is rarely spoken. . . . a powerful tool for therapists, an end to isolation and silence for survivors, and a source of insight on multiple personality disorder for all. -- Treating Abuse Today, vol. 3, no. 3, 1993
The unique quality of this book is the authentic voice of the person with MPD describing an unimaginable experience of life that becomes comprehensible and familiar. At some point the therapist who is learning about MPD must gain this understanding from the inside out and this can be a slow process when working with only one or a few individual clients. This book offers a giant step towards this understanding. -- Art Therapy, Autumn 1991
This book is a must for professionals, survivors, and their family or significant others. -- Family Violence & Sexual Assault Bulletin, vol. 9, no. 2, 1993
This just-released anthology of clinically relevant articles is an excellent and timely contribution to the field of MPD and, indeed, to the field of psychotherapy in general. It presents a common vision of principles which are devoted to improving life with MPD and also a variety of applications and experiences which are useful to the clinician, client, and lay reader. In these pages the reader can find an exciting and deeply humanistic spirit from those who live with multiplicity and from spouses, relatives, or partners or survivors. -- Common Ground, August 1992
This shining jewel is a masterpiece of psychoeducation. It is a compilation of the writings of 132 people with MPD. This well-indexed book is nicely arranged into chapters dealing with diagnosis, emotional pain, skepticism, treatment issues including integration, and family issues. This is must reading for therapists and patients alike. -- ISSMP&D News, December 1991
Those individuals who know multiple personality disorder (MPD) best., i.e., those who live with the diagnosis every day, have contributed essays and poetry in this skillfully edited volume. This book, which should be required reading for every therapist who works with MPD, enables others to view life with MPD from the client's perspective, clearly describing their frustrations, confusion, courage, and hope. . . The book is a valuable resource to the client as well, providing a sense that someone shares her/his fears and feelings. It is a fresh look at the trials of the therapy process and informs therapists in a non-threatening way. Finally, it is an overview which can explain the many confusing components that family and friends experience daily in their lives with MPD clients. In a few, inexpensive pages, MPD from the Inside Out accomplishes a great deal. -- Journal of Traumatic Stress, April 1993

I found a few excerpt from the text very helpful in understanding other people's view of this condition. However, I found the book boring and stale. Same things over and over. Read morePublished on March 17 2003 by Tom
