Front Cover
Routledge, Jun 9, 2014 - Psychology - 272 pages
A major strength of this book is its detailed depiction of Krakauer's clinical work. Her techniques are given in sufficient detail for the reader to use. ... [Another] asset of the book is Krakauer's unusual candor in reflecting on alterative understandings of her findings and ideas, and on the possible limitations on the utility of her methods. ... Many of her ideas and approaches are thought-provoking and deserve further study. . . .This book is very well-written. It reads more smoothly and clearly than most texts of its type. ... Dr. Krakauer is a clever and skilled clinician, and those interested in the treatment of DID who are already experienced and well-grounded in the literature of that field will find it worthwhile to acquaint themselves with her contributions."--Richard Kluft, M.D., Ph. D., American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis "Dr. Sarah Krakauer presents her Collective Heart model in a personal, engaging and highly readable fashion, This volume will enrich clinical understanding as well as stimulate important theoretical and research developments."
