When Joan Frances Casey "awoke" on the ledge of a building ready to jump, she did not know how she had gotten there. It wasn't the first time she had blanked out.
After only a few sessions with Lynn Wilson, an experienced psychiatric social worker, Casey discovered she had MPD--Multiple Personality Disorder. As she came to know Casey's distinct selves, Lynn Wilson uncovered a nightmarish pattern of emotional and physical abuse, including rape and incest. In a move that challenged the medical establishment, Wilson embarked on a radical program of reparenting therapy to bring out and individually treat Joan's twenty-four separate personalities, the "flock" that had been helping Joan Frances Casey function, despite tremendous psychic pain, since she was a child.
The Flock is an intense and enlightening view inside the fractured mind of a multiple personality.
"A testimony to her own courage and the dedication of her therapist, who believed that a profoundly fragmented self has the capacity to heal within a loving therapeutic relationship."--The New York Times Book Review
