Have you seen the move Split, the terrifying story of a man with 23 multiple personalities?
According to an article in the Huffington Post, “the plot takes your breath away.” But even as the movie progresses, the viewer gets a glimpse into what it’s like to be a man with an extreme dissociative identity disorder (DID).
Previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), the psychology community has made great strides in understanding how to treat people afflicted with DID.
If you enjoyed and were intrigued by Split, my book Tango from Chaos to Creativity: How Multiple Personalities Emerge can share even more about how someone can heal from this challenging and often life-debilitating disorder.
Tango is a haunting story of a man’s devastating abuse which comes to light through his years of therapy with me. Through our work using EMDR, my client learns how to integrate his varied personalities to fully realize himself as a whole person.
A work of creative nonfiction, the book shares the true life and healing of this courageous man – his abuse, his words, and his poetry.
