Rating
Originally published in 1991, The Flock is the groundbreaking first-person account of successful recovery from dissociative identity disorder, known then as multiple personality disorder and still a controversial subject in the field of psychiatry. This harrowing tale retains all its power to shock, fascinate, and enlighten. When Joan Frances Casey, a married twenty-six-year-old graduate student, awoke on the ledge of a building ready to jump, it wasn t the first time she couldn t explain her whereabouts. Soon after, Lynn Wilson, an experienced psychiatric social worker, diagnosed Joan with multiple personality disorder. She prescribed a radical program of reparenting therapy to individually treat her patient s twenty-four separate personalities. As Lynn came to know Joan s distinct selves Josie, the self-destructive toddler; Rusty, the motherless boy; Renee, the people pleaser she uncovered a pattern of emotional and physical abuse that had nearly consumed a remarkable young woman. Praise for The Flock A testimony to [Casey s]courage and the dedication of her therapist, who believed that a profoundly fragmented self has the capacity to heal within a loving therapeutic relationship. The New York Times Book Review Absolutely mesmerizing . . . the first coherent autobiographical study of its kind. The Detroit News A compelling psychological odyssey offering unique insights into a nightmare world. Kirkus Reviews Extraordinary . . . deftly told and studded with striking images.
