PROMOCOPY

The diagnosis of multiple personality disorder (MPD) entered the clinical mainstream with a rapidity and in a manner atypical for new descriptions of psychiatric illness. This book contains the most up-to-date information on MPD available written by experts in this field.

The first section is a memorial to Cornelia B. Wilbur, M.D., a pioneer in MPD treatment. It is full of personal accounts from people who knew her well. The second section deals with general issues in the treatment of MPD. It discusses basic principles in conducting the psychotherapy of MPD, posttraumatic and dissociative phenomena in transference and countertransference, and treatment of MPD as a posttraumatic condition. The third section goes on to give case studies that illustrate the application of techniques, approaches, and insights that are considered important in the treatment of MPD patients but are difficult to learn because they have not been documented in detail in the literature. Methods discussed include the use of Amytal interviews, play therapy, ego�state therapy, and the use of sand trays. The last section of the book discusses some of the contemporary concerns in the field (including consultation in the public psychiatric sector and the incidence of eating disorders in MPD patients), and on the recent history of the study of MPD.

"The chapters on psychotherapy include basic principles, transference-countertransference issues, posttraumatic aspects, integration techniques, and inpatient treatment. It is here that the book reaches its zenith of clarity, utility, and classicity. There is no better guide to the conduct of the psychotherapy of multiple personality disorder in print."�American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis
"This is an exceptional book with chapters by most of the world�s authorities on treatment of MPD. Both beginning and advanced clinicians will find it practical and invaluable. I highly recommend it."�D. Corydon Hammond, Ph.D., A.B.P.H., University of Utah School of Medicine
"This volume brings together some of the most outstanding workers in this area in an effort to, as Philip Coons M.D., so concisely puts it in his excellent chapter on multiple personality disorder (MPD) consultation in the public sector, �demystify the disorder and say that it is not a �special� disorder, nor are people who have MPD �special patients�."�Hospital and Community Psychiatry
