About the Book

How to work together, accept each other, work on agreements, hold meetings, become better role-models, and work through the basic rough spots of going from internal anarchy to internal community, by and for multiples & plurals.

Current State of this Book:

Recruits is our most fleshed-out book in the trilogy and is going under an author re-read/re-write/edit of the complete first draft. More info will be added, exercises firmed up, straggling "house-metaphor" blog excerpts or poorly written out-of-place content will either be removed, revamped, or rewritten entirely. Gaps in the contents will be bridged. Comments greatly appreciated at this point. Expect this read to be very rough, and the exercises may be missing or sketchy. We will update this page as edits are published, right now the edits are hand-written in a PDF. However, much info in this version is actually usable.

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

Rev. Criss Ittermann
Rev. Criss Ittermann

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.
