Summary
...Secrets Unraveled offers a gripping account of how a psychotherapy relationship can help even the most tortured mind. The mystery of mental illness is never more evident than with Munchausen Syndrome or Factitious Disorder, where people intentionally make themselves sick or injured to gain love and attention. Seldom discussed, this disturbing condition often leaves clinicians baffled. Dr. Hall delves exhaustively into his patient's abusive childhood, telling the story of how she developed such a crippling disorder. In this bold, brave book, readers will find solace, insight and inspiration. [It] is a landmark book that should interest not only Munchausen patients and their professional caregivers, but also anyone interested in psychology, mental health treatment, and medical mysteries. This is the first book that firmly counters the therapeutic nihilism surrounding the condition, offering hope to patients and families that recovery is achievable. The unique presentation of dual voices - the patient's and the therapist's - allows profound insights into the challenging psychodynamics of Munchausen syndrome and the effort required for resolution. I heartily recommend Secrets Unraveled to all interested readers. -- back cover
