Publisher's Summary

A fresh look at the importance of dissociation in understanding trauma.

A new model of therapeutic action, one that heals trauma and dissociation, is overtaking the mental-health field. It is not just trauma, but the dissociation of the self, that causes emotional pain and difficulties in functioning. This book discusses how people are universally subject to trauma, what trauma is, and how to understand and work with normative as well as extreme dissociation.  

In this new model, the client and the practitioner are both traumatized and flawed human beings who affect each other in the mutual process that the promotes the healing of the client-psychotherapy. Elizabeth Howell explains the dissociative, relational, and attachment reasons that people blame and punish themselves. She covers the difference between repression and dissociation, and how Freud's exclusive focus on repression and the one-person fantasy Oedipal model impeded recognition of the serious consequences of external trauma, including child abuse. 

The book synthesizes trauma/dissociation perspectives and addresses new structural models.

Material excellent. Reader terrible.

The reader so clearly has no knowledge of the subject matter and consistently mispronounces common psychological terms. It is horribly distracting and made it almost impossible to understand those sentences. I had to rewind and re-listen many times because of her mispronouncing ‘affect.’ Other terms are also mispronounced or at times incorrect words are substituted. Terrible. Having no confidence in the reader, and knowing that the reader is not teaching me, nor understanding the material but simply deciding text, severely limited my enjoyment of this wonderful book. I am very disappointed. Please. Choose readers who have SOME knowledge of what they are reading.

Pronunciation could be better for psych terms

Not the biggest issue, but it was just annoying to hear the reader pronounce affect (which in the psych field is pronounced by being heavy on the A) like effect every single time.

Catastrophic narration...

Interesting ideas made completely unintelligible by the awful, monotone American narration which was no better than the synthetic voice provided on Kindle. Please re-record this important work with an English actor who can make sentences meaningful with appropriate intonation.

excellent book on understanding dissociation

excellent book on understanding dissociation for professionals. would need some grounding I. psychodynamic theory but Elizabeth provides an in-depth understanding to the working of the dissociative mind.

Disappointed

I felt like I was listening to a historical statistical round up of fact finding in regards trauma and dissociation. The author constantly referencing the many therapists who have contributed to the research of trauma and dissocciation. Nothing I didn't know. It felt like I was listening a history research story - expose of various Pyschiatrist's research contributions to the field rather than to what dissociation is all about.
