Got Parts is a practical self help guide for adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse It is filled with coping strategies techniues and hopes for DID survivors to master real life issues in relationshi. RATING 3 stars I enjoyed this book relatively speaking and found that it had a lot of useful advice and insight regarding some issues that systems may face Along with some other reviews I ve seen I do agree that some parts came across a bit patronizing and overly simplistic though to be fair this book is intended for those who are newly diagnosed and may not be as familiar with the terminology or the workings of the condition This book is a bit old and possibly outdated so there were were some parts that I did not agree with and scientific understanding has suggested to no longer be true such as the section regarding how deceitful and unacceptable it was for alters to not always know with certainty who they are when fronting It s uite common and perfectly normal for alters to struggle with identity and experience varying degrees of blending with other parts Another thing that didn t sit well with me was how topics such as eating disorders substance abuse and other mental health issues were spoken about in the context of a system Although it s true that sharing one body among multiple identities each with their own uniue struggles and strengths will inherently mean that one part s actions will affect everyone else in the system that does not make the alter disrespectful or warrant punishment in the form of exclusion from system activities and discussions Mental health issues among fellow members of your system should be treated with compassion and understanding not be a source of further resentment among one another Regardless there was still a lot of helpful and useful information scattered throughout the book and I felt that it was especially nice to read about things from the perspective of an actual system for once as opposed to professionals even if I disagreed with some of their takes I wouldn t recommend this book as a whole but I would highlight certain passages to pass on to others
