Beyond These Walls is the story of a client living with Dissociative Identity Disorder, (DID), and her painful journey to a whole life. After years of horrific abuse, Hanna believed that her only option was to choose death until she met Rachel. Rachel's ability to love and nurture Hanna, within the context of a trusting, helping relationship, convinced Hanna to choose life. The book is presented from these two points-of-view: a therapist, with thirty years of experience, presents her humanistic, unconventional methods in order to gain a client's trust; and the client, whose own unfiltered words and pictures provide the reader with the stark reality of her struggle. Beyond These Walls describes how this unique therapist-client relationship helped integrate 26 distinct personalities of different gender and states of physical health into a whole person. Above all, it is a book about hope and the celebration of life.
