SWITCHING TIME A Doctor's Harrowing Story of Treating a Woman with 17 Personalities

by | Read by Lloyd James

Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Depressed, suicidal, complaining of strange pains and loss of time, "Karen" is referred to psychiatrist Richard Baer. During her treatment Baer determines that Karen has multiple personality disorder (MPD). Lloyd James's narration is mesmerizing. His reading never crosses the line into prurience. He states details matter-of-factly, including horrific tales of exploitation, cruelty, violence, torture, and ritual sexual abuse in Satanic cults. After years of therapy sessions and hypnosis, 17 separate personalities emerge. While MPD has been explored before in THE THREE FACES OF EVE and SYBIL, this perspective is unique because it is told from the point of view of the therapist. James's sensitive reading allows listeners to share Baer's initial skepticism, his eventual acceptance, and his thought processes as he tries to help. Fascinating listening.
