The groundbreaking first-person account of successful recovery from dissociative identity disorder, now featuring a new preface by the author

Originally published in 1991, The Flock is the groundbreaking first-person account of successful recovery from dissociative identity disorder, known then as multiple personality disorder—and still a controversial subject in the field of psychiatry. This harrowing tale retains all its power to shock, fascinate, and enlighten.

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.
