Divided Consciousness and the Process of Awareness.
A startling new study in human consciousness, 'The Myth Of Sanity' is a landmark book about forgotten trauma, dissociated mental states, and multiple personality in everyday life.
In its groundbreaking analysis of childhood trama and dissociation and their far-reaching implications in adult life, the book reveals that moderate dissociation is a normal mental reaction to pain and fear and that even the most extreme dissociative reaction - multiple personality - is more common that we think.
Through astonishing stories of people whose lives have been shattered by trauma and then remade, the book shows us how to recognise these altered mental states in friends and family, even in ourselves. The inspiring trauma survivors here, in reclaiming their whole minds and gaining genuine sanity, have much to teach us about healing, wholeness, and the will to live our best lives.
