New Books for Dissociative Children Now Available on Kindle

ISSTD Member Ana Gomez has produced two books for dissociative children, now available on Kindle. The beautifully colourful books, targeted at children aged 7 years and over, aim to bring empowerment and resources to dissociative children with an emerging personality that shows fragmentation. These books remind children of their “inner and outer powers” and how they can utilize them during moments of crises.

The books also support dissociative children in creating balance and stability in their often-tumultuous inner worlds. They provide child friendly language and playful approaches in decreasing the internal conflict and working with the child’s inner system.

The first book: The Story of the Oyster and the Butterfly & all the Parts of Me aims to assist and support children though a general crisis.

The second book: The Story of the Oyster and the Butterfly: The Coronavirus and all the Parts of Me aims, as the name suggests, to support children living through the current pandemic, by exploring the way the innovative oyster and butterfly cope with challenges and change. 

The books are available on Kindle here.
