Review:

This book provides an excellent overview of the subject plus helpful suggestions for practicing clinicians who may work with these children. -- Frederick H. Berenstein, MA, Readings, June 1997

This book takes multiple personality and dissociative phenomena from the realm of myth and fantasy into the objective light of clinical observation and scientific study. . . . This book brings together clinical findings, diagnostic problems, and therapeutic techniques in evaluating and treating such children. It is capably edited by Joyanna Silberg, herself an author or coauthor of six of the 15 chapters and senior psychologist at the Sheppard Pratt Health System. She has assembled a galaxy of clinicians concerned and experienced with children and adolescents who are plagued with dissociative symptoms. . . . The chapters fit together into a coherent whole; they offer the knowledge of experts and are tightly and clearly written. This is a book that sets the reader thinking about the capacity of the human organism to deal with stress and the many ways we can do so. It is destined to become a classic. -- Psychiatric Services, September 1998

This one-of-a-kind text contains a wealth of theoretical and practical information pertinent to the concept of dissociation. Emphasis on the team approach to treatment of clients is reflected in the broad educational and clinical preparation of the writers. Extensive references at the end of each chapter will facilitate supplemental study for the enhancement of professional growth in this relatively new yet vital mental health specialty. The appendices contain several assessment instruments, as well as a brief list of additional resources. . . . the quality of the contents will attract and absorb the interest of students and practitioners dedicated to providing the very best of care to children and adolescents with dissociative disorders. -- Family Violence & Sexual Assault Bulletin, vol. 13, no. 1-2, 1997
