"I am knocked out by [this book]... [B]oth confirming and revelatory. [Rich's] contribution to understanding and treatment of this disorder is enormous, should be widely known, and hopefully have many ripple effects both in research and to clinical practice. Wonderful stuff." -- Pam Stavropoulos, PhD, Member of the Scientific Co "Nothing short of a revelation. I've rarely encountered a psychiatric or psychoanalytic text that so well combines theoretical power with immediate clinical utility." -- Garrett Deckel, MD, PhD, Clinical Assistant Profes "Richard Chefetz, arguably the most astute and sophisticated mind in the field of trauma and dissociation, accompanies his readers on a personal journey into the mind and consulting room of a master clinician, scientist, and educator. This book demonstrates why dissociation is mostly not about dissociate disorders. It is about how a mind struggles to cope with the intolerable and unbearable. As both a traumatologist and a psychodynamic clinician, Chefetz has built a bridge that explores the joint dissociative processes that take place as part of the patient/therapist relationship." -- Philip M. Bromberg, PhD, author, The Shad "A master teacher on dissociative phenomena, Richard Chefetz integrates scientific sophistication with in-the-trenches clinical mastery. His eloquent writing-synthesizing theory and practice, mind and body, left- and right-brain processes, research and application, science and art-exemplifies the healing integration sought by every therapist familiar with dissociative disorders. I recommend it to anyone seriously interested in the treatment of fractured minds and defeated hearts. " -- Nancy McWilliams, PhD, Professor, Rutgers Universi "Dr. Chefetz has written an engaging and reader-friendly introduction to the relational understanding and treatment of dissociative processes. More impressively still, he accomplishes these objectives with the flair of a master storyteller... incredibly useful for any mental health professional beginning to make his or her way into the often complex, overwhelming, and disconcerting study of dissociative processes. I recommend it highly." -- Richard P. Kluft, MD, PhD, authors of She "An indispensable text for the clinician who works with trauma and dissociative disorders... Clinical vignettes provide the reader with an understanding that is 'from the inside out' of the patient's experience and of the interactions of the clinical dyad... a must-read for anyone who feels that they haven't 'gotten' dissociative phenomena." -- Elizabeth Howell, PhD, author of The Diss "With a wonderfully engaging style, Richard Chefetz instructs readers in the art of blending psychodynamic and affect theory with attachment, neurobiology, and trauma-related research in the treatment of severely dissociative patients. Clinicians, get ready to be inspired by the warmth, attunement, and clinical skill demonstrated in this book! " -- Bethany Brand, PhD, Principal Investigator, TOP DD
