Discover groundbreaking findings on a hidden epidemic -- and why it so often is misdiagnosed.

You peer into the mirror and have trouble recognizing yourself. You feel as if you're going through the motions of life or you're watching a movie of yourself.

These are all symptoms of dissociation -- a debilitating psychological condition involving feelings of disconnection that affects 30 million people in North America and often goes untreated. The Stranger in the Mirror offers unique guidelines for identifying and recovering from dissociative symptoms based on Dr. Marlene Steinberg's breakthrough diagnostic test. Filled with fascinating case histories of people with multiple personalities, this book provides enlightening insights into how all of us respond to trauma and overcome it. Her innovative method of treatment will benefit anyone in search of a healthier sense of self and a heightened capacity for joy.

Marlene Steinberg, M.D., is a practicing psychiatrist and world renowned researcher in dissociation. Dr. Steinberg conducted her pioneering research at Yale University School of Medicine. She practices in Connecticut and western Massachusetts.

Editorial Reviews

"Dissociation bewilders survivors, their family members, and many professionals. Marlene Steinberg is the ideal person to tackle the challenge of educating the public about this tragically common outcome of psychological trauma. She has gathered and organized a wealth of first-person accounts in structured clinical interviews that have shaped the field of diagnosing dissociative disorders. Stranger in the Mirror provides a valuable service by distinguishing among different types of dissociation and helping readers to determine if symptoms are benign or more serious. Most important, the book offers hope to trauma survivors and those who care about them: with proper diagnostic evaluation, effective treatment is available." (Jon G.
