This revised edition investigates the still unaddressed and unexplored subject of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). With brand new chapters on police work and attachment theory it has been fully updated to include new research and the latest understanding of patterns of attachment theory that lead to dissociation. With contributions from psychotherapists, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts and service users this book covers the background history and a description of the condition along with the issues of diagnoses and treatment.

It also looks at: the phenomenon of DID; the conflicting models of the human mind that have been found to try and understand DID; the political conflict over the subject including problems for the police; clinical accounts and personal writing of people with DID. Attachment, Trauma and Multiplicity: Second Edition will prove essential reading for therapists and mental health workers as well as being a valuable resource for graduates and researchers.
