The Journey Through DID Therapy


The workshop with Carol and Mike is a reflection on four years of therapy between them for dissociative identity disorder. Carol and Mike speak about the journey through therapy, how it was set up (and funded!),  the pitfalls encountered, the way problems were dealt with and hints and tips for others in the same position. Ultimately the workshop is about hope and the ability for change and recovery to take place even under the most difficult of circumstances. The nature of the relationship between the people involved in therapy will be discussed and how honesty and humour can be so vital.
