Glaring Need for Treatment of Dissociative Disorders

 
 

This is my first Storify story, which allows you to realign Twitter (and other media) from a top down perspective, making it much easier to follow the conversation. It’s long bothered me that important discussions scroll off into oblivion on Twitter; this is one way to capture them.

If this post does not render correctly via email or RSS, you can see it by either clicking back here to the blog, or you can read it directly on Storify.

‘Many Voices’ Archives Available for Free!

 
 

Many Voices Logo

Many Voices was the heart and soul project of Lynn Wasnak for over 20 years until her death in 2012.
 

The Many Voices homepage states: “Since 1989, MANY VOICES’ bimonthly newsletters, books, and website offer healing resources to people recovering from child abuse or severe trauma. MV readers form a community dedicated to healing from tragic physical, sexual, and emotional assaults. We suggest solutions to overcome dissociation, PTSD, flashbacks, self-injury and other disabling symptoms of a painful past. We publish the knowledge and caring of trauma therapy specialists on our Therapists’ Pages. And as we heal, we share our good news of regained health and improved relationships with others. We do our part to end the cycle of child abuse.”

I both subscribed to the newsletter for many years, and attended a couple of Many Voices conferences. The homepage cited above contains many valuable resources for anyone dealing with child abuse recovery, and anything to do with dissociation. But Lynn Wasnak ensured that all of these resources, including the newsletter, would be gifted to the future.

Many Voices issues are now the property of The International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation. According to Lynn Wasnak’s wishes, ALL of the issues of Many Voices from 1989-2012 are available to download as PDF’s.”

For free! You can download every single issue of Many Voices — all 141 issues! — under their Newsletter link. Lynn also created a detailed Subject Index, so you can go directly to whichever newsletter discusses subjects of interest to you!

This is a fabulous, generous resource available to anyone! Please take advantage of it. Lynn was in many ways a pioneer, making a safe space to discuss dissociation and difficult child abuse issues on the Internet as far back as 1989. I’m personally grateful to her for her labor of love!

‘Becoming One’ Sale Ends Late Nov. 14th!

 
 
 
Becoming One Poster

Only two days left to buy my Becoming One ebook from Amazon for just $.99 in both the US and UK! Around 11pm EST Saturday night the price reverts to $4.99. Just sayin’. ;)

It’s been a great fun week, meeting and talking with so many people who are interested in learning about Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), and generally, PTSD and the long-term effects of trauma.
 
 

But it’s time for me to get back to the publishing of my next book, Don’t Forget About You. Earlier this year, I took on what’s become a much larger task than I originally imagined: a Q&A-style book about DID. So much of trauma recovery revolves around learning — and relearning — good habits of self-care. It’s a universal theme, and it bothered me that a good chunk of what I was writing would be, in effect, hidden in a book about DID.

And that’s when I had my light bulb moment — I realized that the subject of self-care for trauma survivors deserves its own space.

The fabulous thing about indie publishing is you can pivot in a new direction, and readily actualize it without being beholden to some locked-in contract to finish the original book first. It’s so very freeing!

My plan is to make Don’t Forget About You available for pre-order within the next month, with actual publication in January! It’s an ambitious goal, and I think I’m worthy of it. :)

Meanwhile, go buy Becoming One while it’s still $.99, because that’s not going to happen again for a long, long time! Thank you to everyone who’s bought it already. I’d be very grateful for your review to be posted on Amazon!
