Five Survivors, a Hundred Lives is a book that will help us understand trauma and dissociation: that is, the way mistreatment in childhood can have an impact on one's life and personality structure. The book brings a new level to a collective awareness that is being created. With this new awareness, trauma-related mental health problems can be met in an appropriate and healing way.
Psychopharmaceuticals largely dominate treatment practices in psychiatry. Therefore, it is beneficial to hear about the life events that lie behind psychological symptoms. Five brave people have decided to share their stories in these pages. This is extremely important, as it is hard to identify with descriptions of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Five Survivors, a Hundred Lives book offers the reader the possibility of identification and hope for a better future. At the same time, hopefully it will give an increasing number of new people the courage to tell their stories and move from shame to living life to the fullest.
This book has the honed poetry of processed lived experience. Nothing is gratuitous. Treatment has been crucial. There are ups and downs, different levels of therapeutic journeys. However, the combined effect is a work of art of great honesty that will aid survivors, professionals, and those who are both.
-Valerie Sinason, poet, writer, psychoanalyst and psychotherapist-
