I am providing here DRAFT versions of chapters of a book on the topic of Dissociation and Embodiment.

The PDF files have all been locked to prevent copying and printing, so these files are READ-ONLY. All articles are subject to copyright.

I intend to upload all documents here to a new dedicated website in the not too distant future. If you want to share these files with other people, please link them to this web page so that updated files can be accessed when the location is swapped.

Comments welcome on any of these essays.
