"This beautifully written, sensitive volume on how to treat the clients that many deem hopeless is a must read for those working with trauma. It will take you to new places and enable you to reach for your clients and find them when they cannot find themselves. Enjoy!"
Sue Johnson, PhD, professor, researcher, and author of Love Sense: The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships
"Written by one of the preeminent experts in the field of trauma and dissociation, Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors imparts a vision of hope and validation to those suffering from complex trauma and the therapists who treat them. Janina Fisher’s exceptional ability to synthesize the best of cutting edge trauma psychotherapies has resulted in a brilliant and unique roadmap for resolving chronic traumatization. Written with heart, clarity, and precision, this accessible and practical book is an outstanding contribution to the field."
Pat Ogden, PhD, founder, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
"The role of cumulative trauma in the fragmentation of self-experience, the strategies for identifying, together with the client, the non-integrated parts of the personality during the clinical exchanges, and the integrating power of the psychotherapy dialogue have rarely been dealt with in such a convincing and original way as in the pages of this fascinating book."
Giovanni Liotti, MD, APC School of Psychotherapy, Rome, Italy
"Janina Fisher’s unique blending of IFS ‘parts’ with sensorimotor and mindfulness-based therapy is a terrific enhancement to psychodynamic work. Although grounded in structural dissociation theory and trauma treatment, Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors offers insights that will enrich the knowledge-base of therapists treating higher-functioning as well as deeply traumatized individuals. I recommend this remarkable book to all psychotherapists, especially psychodynamic ones, who will discover an extraordinary opportunity to expand their clinical horizons."
Kenneth A. Frank, PhD, Psychotherapy Integration Training Program, National Institute for Psychotherapies

This book makes sense of so much that never made sense to me before. I can at long last understand why the parts only hear "the bad stuff"; why the messages I've been trying to get through to them about how safe we are now have been falling on deaf ears. I understand why I ended up so destabilised each time I went into therapy in the past - despite well-meaning therapists, I can see that they simply lacked the understanding of what was going on in my brain and how to work with me without destabilising me. I finally get why it's not about what happened to me so much as about what is continuing to go on inside of me. The book is an absolute wealth of information, and I'm going to have to read it over and over to take it all in - there are so many explanations for things that I thought weren't explainable!
I'm living proof that the model that Fisher teaches really works. After giving up on going into therapy again, after too many attempts that just resulted in day to day life becoming unmanageable while in therapy, Fisher's teachings inspired me to have another go. I found a therapist trained in IFS and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and even though it's very early days I'm already starting to work with my parts in a way I've never been able to before. I feel better and more settled at the end of a therapy hour than the beginning, and I'm already better able to manage triggering. This model really works!
My wish is that every single trauma survivor looking for answers, and every single therapist, be able to read this gem of a book. I salute and truly appreciate Janina Fisher for her curiosity and desire to find ways to make therapy work for us severely traumatised folk, and for making her learnings and skills so accessible to so many via this book.
