    This author is not afraid of plunging the depths. He addresses tough issues in both the diagnosis and treatment of long term trauma. He does not lose sight of the fact that trauma means suffering.

    This book should be required reading for anyone working with traumatized clients. No matter your level of experience, you will learn something new and useful from this book. I have read a lot in this area, and this is above and beyond. It was recommended in an online course for diagnosing and treating dissociative disorders as absolutely essential. If you can only afford one, this is the one.
