"Masterful....It is indeed a rare pleasure to find the most relevant and contemporary research on this topic so well articulated....This is indubitably one of the most useful additions to any professional library." --Eliana Gil, PhD
"Dr. Frank Putnam's most recent book, Dissociation in Children and Adolescents: A Developmental Approach, is a welcome addition to the literature on childhood dissociation. Dr. Putnam reviews relevant research on the role of childhood trauma in the development of dissociative phenomena. Especially noteworthy is Putnam's utilization of a developmental framework in order to conceptualize dissociative symptoms as failures in basic developmental processes. The incorporation of clinical case vignettes brings the concepts described to life and makes them more accessible to the reader.
Dr. Putnam is one of our nation's premier thinkers on dissociation and this book will be extremely helpful to those invested in understanding and treating dissociative disorders of childhood and adolescence." --Dante Cicchetti, PhD, Director, Mt. Hope Family Center, University of Rochester

In "Dissociation in Children and Adolescents," Dr. Putnam presents an eloquent mixture of empiracle data and psychological theory. Putnam presents the DBS (Discrete Behavioral State) theory of dissociation in rich detail and also touches on other matters such as psychopharmacology and neuroscience. At times, the text can become slightly dense, but only to a degree (I feel) that makes the book all the more delightful, challenging, and interesting to read.
Overall, I found Putnam's book to be insighful, interesting, and informative. I highly recommend this book not only to those interested in treating children and adolescents, but also to clinicians and students interested in dissociation--how it develops, differential diagnosis, and testing.
Furthermore, Putnam's book includes copies of the DES-II, the A-DES, and the CDC in the back of the book with the repeated and explicit blessing to copy, distribute, and use these tests. Of course, clinicians treating dissociation are probably well aware that Putnam and Carlson are the creators of the DES and its variants.
Again, I highly recommend this book to those treating dissociative patients. I even recommend it to clinicians who are *not* specifically interested in dissociation simply because, when spotted and correctly diagnosed, dissociation is treatable. Read this book!
