A woman diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder reveals her harrowing journey from abuse to recovery in this #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography written by her own multiple personalities. Successful, happily married Truddi Chase began therapy hoping to find the reasons behind her extreme anxiety, mood swings, and periodic blackouts. What emerged from her sessions was terrifying: Truddi’s mind and body were inhabited by the Troops—ninety-two individual voices that emerged to shield her from her traumatizing childhood. For years the Troops created a world where she could hide from the pain of the ritualized sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her own stepfather—abuse that began when she was only two years old. It was a past that Truddi didn’t even know existed, until she and her therapist took a journey to where the nightmare began... Written by the Troops themselves, When Rabbit Howls is told by the very alter-egos who stayed with Truddi Chase, watched over her, and protected her. What they reveal is a spellbinding descent into a personal hell—and an ultimate, triumphant deliverance for the woman they became.

The groundbreaking first-person account of successful recovery from dissociative identity disorder, now featuring a new preface by the author When Joan Frances Casey, a married twenty-six-year-old graduate student, “awoke” on the ledge of a building ready to jump, it wasn’t the first time she couldn’t explain her whereabouts. Soon after, Lynn Wilson, an experienced psychiatric social worker, diagnosed Joan with multiple personality disorder. She prescribed a radical program of reparenting therapy to individually treat her patient’s twenty-four separate personalities. As Lynn came to know Joan’s distinct selves—Josie, the self-destructive toddler; Rusty, the motherless boy; Renee, the people pleaser—she uncovered a pattern of emotional and physical abuse that had nearly consumed a remarkable young woman.

Twelve-year-old Dauna found herself sitting on a stool in the middle of a dilapidated barn. The cold metal of a gun was pressed against her temple. 'You have a choice. Have sex with each man here. If you refuse...we will put this gun to your head and pull the trigger.' Dauna did not know if she would survive this game of Russian roulette. Either way, she would lose. If the gun did not kill her, the repeated rapes by the men surrounding her could very well kill her spirit. Imagine a world where your very first memories are of sexual abuse, where molestation and rape are a childhood norm, and where your own family members do not protect you, but instead are the source of your torment. For Dauna Cole, this nightmare was reality. A Shattered Mind is her story of survival through horrific abuse and of her lifelong struggle to overcome the psychological and emotional aftermath. After being removed from her home by Child Services, Dauna thought her suffering was over, but it was just beginning as she worked to put the fractured memories of the past and the pieces of herself back together again.
