got parts?: An Insider's Guide to Managing Life Successfully with Dissociative Identity Disorder

This book, while not specifically about TIR (Traumatic Incident Reduction), emphasizes it as part of a complete case handling for DID.

Once thought of as a rare and mysterious psychiatric curiosity, Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) (a.k.a Multiple Personality Disorder) is now understood to be a fairly common outcome of severe trauma in children below seven years of age: most typically extreme and repeated physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse.

Got Parts was written by a survivor of DID in conjunction with her therapist and therapy group. This book is intended to be used in conjuction with a therapist and is not a substitute for therapy. Got Parts is filled with successful strategies, coping techniques, and helpful ways to increase the day-to-day functioning of adult survivors of DID in relationships, work, parenting, self-confidence, and self-care.

"I have worked full time with MPD clients for 15 years and got parts? would be the first required reading."
