Talking about DID with
your kids can be really hard.
A Different Kind of Super Hero was written
to make it easier to start the conversation.
Intended to be read with your family, A Different Kind of Superhero empowers parents to discuss with their children the impact of childhood trauma resulting in Dissociative Identity Disorder in a safe and open environment. The narrative is delivered from a young child's perspective, detailing his experience learning about his mother's disorder and how it affects her personality, behavior, and the child's family life.
In playful, imaginative, and descriptive language, the narrator introduces children to the experiences of living with a parent who has been diagnosed with DID. Sometimes quirky and funny, sometimes sad and a little scary, the narrator walks other children through some of his experiences and his parents' explanation of the disorder. Rather than focusing on an illness or disorder, the presentation explores how alter personalities are the super heroes who saved his mother's life when she was a child and how they continue to work in her life, and her family's, as an adult.
A Different Kind of Super Hero provokes thoughtful discussion between parents and children and allows for the safe exploration of the causes and effects of Dissociative Identity Disorder.
