About the Book
You know how the goodie-two-shoes folk think they smell like roses but are actually going about everything wrong? So why are they pushing us away and locking us up when we're trying to help! Working on setting things straight: building trust, honoring our differences, converting those annoying stuck-up "good guys" into amazing allies. Written by and for multiples and plurals with internal persecutors and internalized abusers.
Current State of this Book:
Rebels is in active rewrites at this time (Dec 11, 2018), and we will post updates as text in the book is written in the proper voice/perspective. We can't update per-chapter or section, only once we have substantial contributions (because of a number of updates across all books each month). Comments always appreciated! The whole project is 54K words but much less is published at this time; it's awaiting rewrites.
We've enabled the LeanPub forums to get feedback from readers. Please contribute and ask questions, you may help this book go off in new directions or help more people!!
About the Author
If there were a who's who of online multiple-personalities, the Crisses would be one of the notable names. Founder of Kinhost.org, the premier online manual by multiples, for multiples, the Crisses (aka Rev. Criss Ittermann) are well-known amongst persons with multiple personalities. They are also a life coach, Interfaith minister, Shaman, herbalist, Reiki Master, and more.
Crisses grew up in Brooklyn and at the age of 16 following an avalanche of tragic events, Crisses spent 9 months in a mental hospital. The adolescent ward of the hospital was far from what you may have seen in movies; it was much more like a Breakfast Club vacation from a troublesome life than a traumatic experience from a psychothriller movie. Quiet, observant, and wise beyond their years, Crisses became a "mother hen" for other people who were outcast from society, for whatever reason.
While in the hospital, Crisses confessed about the "other people" in their head to their doctor. While he didn't put their diagnosis on paper until 2001, Crisses were diagnosed with multiple personalities in 1986 and flat-out refused to integrate.
After discharge from all treatment, the Crisses continued their journey to their own particular brand of wholeness — a life of collaboration, understanding, kindness and community within themselves. They now share the tools that have helped them with others so that other multiples can improve internal relations and communication.
