Dissociative Identity Disorder is a highly controversial mental health condition mainly because the public, providers, and those living with its diagnosis have not read or are not aware of the research available to them. This work contains a compilation of many of the important research papers and books available to anyone online to find truthful facts and information about DID. The intent of this book? To spread truthful information, help others help themselves, enlighten providers, and help end the stigma that surrounds this sometimes disabling and always life-changing diagnosis.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I live with the diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder and came to understand how hard it is for providers of mental health services and the public to find research papers to fit their needs on this subject without searching for hours on the internet. My book brings most of the research into one reference book which includes research paper by topic with the title, author's names, and abstract.
Humans spend an inordinate amount of time trying to understand what makes us tick. We read books about self-help and try to get a sense of how we got to be who we are.
Those living with trauma disorder like dissociative identity disorder are no different. Yes, we know that childhood trauma caused the disorder, but how we formed alternate existence alludes us.
The discrimination surrounding dissociative identity disorder makes matters worse. There are mental health professionals who refuse to consider the reality of the disorder and I can only think do not care to read the research that is available.
The reasons above are why I have written this book. It is a compilation of many of the available research papers with their abstracts plus a brief explanation of what they are about.
Research about dissociative identity disorder and the related components of it is available for free on the Internet. However, it is so scattered that one can exhaust themselves trying to piece it all together. Especially if you are not a researcher, professor of psychology, or someone with an advanced college degree.
I hope this resource helps those who struggle with the diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder and the many trauma-related mental health conditions.
I’ve tried to explain the meanings of what you will be reading, and you will find a glossary of terms at the end of this work.
Only by sharing the research far and wide among the psychiatric community can we assure that people living with DID get the treatment they need and deserve.
