"This is a book that makes an important contribution to our understanding of dissociation. It should be read by clinicians and researchers who wish for exposure to the complexities of the dissociative mind." - PsycCRITIQUES "Howell's excellent and clearly written book covers both aspects of dissociation. Howell makes excellent use of both her emotional sensitivity and her sharp intellect...read it and discover all it has to offer." - International Journal of Psychoanalysis "In sum, The Dissociative Mind provides a thorough context for evaluating current dissociation theories. The case descriptions that Howell uses to bring the complex and competing theories to life are true gems. Her book will be of particular interest and benefit to those interested in obtaining an overview of the history of dissociation theory, as well as a description of how dissociation relates to current psychodynamic constructs. As dialogue in the field focuses on the development of integrative models, we anticipate that this book will provide a valued voice that models, drawing on the best the field has to offer to advance dissociation theories." - Anne P. DePrince, Ph.D., and Kristin M. Weinzierl, M.S., University of Denver, taken from Journal of Trauma and Dissociation, 8.1, 2007 "Elizabeth Howell's book, The Dissociative Mind, is a long overdue addition to both the traumatological and psychoanalytic literature...Dr. Howell's clear voice is taking its rightful place amongst the leading clinician/theoreticians of our time. I look forward to her future work, and I highly recommend this book to you as essential reading." - Richard Chefetz, M.D., International Society for the Study of Dissociation "...this wonderful, complicated, psychodynamically-based book...lays out the historical foundations and theoretical evolution of psychoanalytic explanations of dissociative adaptations to overwhelming experience, and then proceeds to reformulate them...a very thorough treatment of the many meanings of dissociation. It is an important book. I recommend The Dissociative Mind without reservation." - Melvin A. Gravitz, Ph.D., American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis
