Amongst Ourselves is a self-help guide written expressly for individuals with DID/MPD—and the first to provide readers with the practical steps they can take to cope with the condition and emerge with greater self-awareness and the skills to live a rich and rewarding life.

Authors Tracy Alderman and Karen Marshall explain what DID is and provide a clear account of its underlying causes and symptoms. They describe what it’s like to live with DID and make practical suggestions for coming to terms with the condition, managing the confusion and self-destructive behaviors that often accompany it, and deciding to “come out” to others.

Karen lends a unique and immensely important perspective, in that she is able to speak as both a therapist and as an individual with DID. Through her insights, as well as guided exercises throughout the text, readers learn: New skills and strategies to help them manage living with DID An appreciation for DID’s positive aspects What to expect from therapy and available treatment options How to become more aware of themselves and the ways in which DID affects their lives

My therapist read this book & was pleased with my choice. I was pleased with the easy read & not a lot of technical terms. I also liked the sections “For the Spouse” & “For the Family” & my husband will read it when I am finished & my sister is getting her own copy! Very easy to read & understand. Helps that one of the authors has DID (makes it more personal). I’d recommend this book to anyone!

Very helpful

Scary to read but true to the word

but seems like it should be more in autobiography than self

This book was okay, but seems like it should be more in autobiography than self help

I really liked this book. It was definitely an easy read, and manages to keep things interesting. The information is definitely more geared towards someone who was perhaps recently diagnosed or suspects that he/she might be suffering from dissociative issues, as it is pretty basic and not very in-depth. It seems like a great book to have significant others and family members of those with DID to read as well. I really enjoyed reading the book and it was a page-turner.

Great Book

This is a really great book for self-help while living with DID. We’ve slowly been working through it and really wish it was longer.
