Often misdiagnosed, DID (dissociative identity disorder) is known predominantly to be caused by severe childhood trauma combined with a disorganized attachment style. Lyn Barrett shares her own journey going from happy wife and mother to internally living with more than ten distinctive personalities or 'alters.”' Her story is a life-changing gift for all the survivors of trauma and those who love them, and for anyone who wants to educate themselves on trauma-induced dissociation particularly as it manifests as DID. Barrett, a survivor of early childhood trauma, is a speaker and retreat leader, as well as a retired elementary school teacher, school principal and church pastor. She currently facilitates writers workshops, teaches a memoir class for dissociative writers and is heard on public radio, podcasts and other venues.
