    A brilliant book that should be read by anyone who trusts a psychiatrist because they didn't stop being like the woman profiled in this book when the 80s ended I grew up among the psychiatrists of NYC in the 1950s as my father worked with them so nothing you would tell me about how screwed up and sexually abusive they were would surprise me

Sybil a name that conjures up enduring fascination for legions of obsessed fans who followed the nonfiction blockbuster from 1973 and the TV movie based on it starring Sally Field and Joanne Woodward about a woman named Sybil with sixteen different personalities Sybil became both a pop phenomenon and a revolutionary force in the psychotherapy industry The book rocketed multiple personality disorder MPD into public consciousness and played a major role in having the diagnosis added to the psychiatric bible Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders But what do we really know about how Sybil came to be In her news breaking book Sybil Exposed journalist Debbie Nathan gives proof that the allegedly true story was largely fabricated The actual identity of Sybil Shirley Mason has been available for some years as has the idea that the book might have been exaggerated But in Sybil Exposed Nathan reveals what really powered the legend a trio of women the willing patient her ambitious shrink and th IT WAS ALL A LIE or was it A few decades back there was a movie called Sybil which was sort of a buzz movie Before that the story was a book I ve never read the original book but I have seen the movie a few times Basically the book was about this woman whose named had been changed and her experience with Multiple Personality Disorder as it was called back then The movie was Crazy with a capital C This chick had been raised by the mother of bizarre and had suffered through extreme abuse at the hands of this woman Because of everything that Sybil had gone through it was assumed that much of this abuse could have been a huge part of the reason why Sybil was forced inside of her own head to a place of needing extra personalities as a coping mechanismOr so we thought According the author there are public records tapes transcripts etc from therapy sessions showing that some of the story might have either been fabricated or at the very least coaxed out of the patient through the use of extremely aggressive hypnotic and drug induced therapySo I was reading this booktaking notes highlighting passages etc I was interested to find that some of the story that I know might not be completely accurate But then the plot thickens I logged onto GR to skim a few reviews and see what others were saying about the book and saw This review and the following comments I think I m not going to touch this with a ten foot pole I have no clue what s what Was the book interesting I think it was in parts Being as that I m not the type of person who needs to know details going all the way back to the grandparents there was a lot of info that didn t really interest me in particular but it might have been fascinating to others I was mainly curious to see what was behind the story of Sybil However I did find out some very bizarre history about the early beginnings of the Seventh Day Adventist church Enemas were apparently the in thing and constipation led to sexual deviancy Who knew duplicity years as has the idea that the book might have been exaggerated But in Sybil Exposed Nathan reveals what really powered the legend a trio of women the willing

characters Sybil Exposed

Psychiatrist said caused her MPD Sybil Exposed uses investigative journalism to tell a fascinating tale that reads like fiction but is fact Nathan has followed an enormous trail of papers records photos and tapes to unearth the lives and passions of these three women The Sybil archive became available to the public only recently and Nathan examined all of it and provides proof that the story was an elaborate fraud albeit one that the perpetrators may have half believed Before Sybil was published there had been fewer than 200 known cases of MPD; within just a few years after than 40000 people would be diagnosed with it Set across the twentieth century and rooted in a time when few professional roles were available to women this is a story of corrosive sexism unchecked ambition and shaky theories of psychoanalysis exuberantly and drastically practiced It is the story of how one modest young woman’s life turned psychiatry on its head and radically changed the course of therapy and our culture as wel So everybody jump on the bandwagon there s another book denying the reality of multiple personality well it s called Dissociative Identity Disorder now the MPD label was dropped back in 1994 This time it s the new book by Debbie Nathan called Sybil Exposed The Extraordinary Story Behind the Famous Multiple Personality CaseIn interviews Nathan states she has fact checked the book and done years of research so I think to myself much of it must be true right Well if it was in a way yes facts are facts But the presentation of the facts can be in such a way as to make them seem grandiose or less depending on what the author wants you to believeMy first and continuing thought in all of this is Why does this author want to write a book that could hurt so many people I have my thoughts on this but never find the answer in the book It begins in the introduction that Debbie Nathan gives proof that the allegedly true story was largely fabricated and goes onto build what looks like a horror story of ghoulish proportions It portends to have all the makings of a great fiction book greed sex gore and maybe that s what this book was in all actuality FictionThroughout the book you meet the individuals of the person known as Sybil Dr Cornelia Wilbur her Psychiatrist and Flora Rheta Schreiber the person who writes the book Sybil The style is confusing The way she moves between people it s not easy to connect the dots unless you actually take her at her word that this is truth Some of the historic facts about the women are rather interesting if it is true Learning about how they grew up and what challenges they faced actually made the book Sybil believable to meUnfortunately what I see is pieces of truth interwoven with statements of the author s opinion and comments made to capture the reader with a sense of disgust For example when the author discusses the truth of Dr Wilbur taking part in the early days of performing lobotomies she uses this description Now she was also drilling holes in their skulls and turning their brains into pulp Anyone familiar with the history of medicine knows that the practice of medicine has come a long way from its early days Remember blood letting using leeches to drain people s blood to cure disease The author takes facts out of context and makes them seem like you should be aghastThe author continues this theme throughout the book even into her notes pages For example instead of saying Mason s diary entry she uses the terminology All so called diary material This shows the disbelief and utter disdain the author has for Sybil although she will tell you that she believes that she was misguided and used by Dr Wilbur and Flora Rheta ShreiberThe author does not only try to debunk the Sybil story she appears to have an agenda against anyone that believes in DID or what she calls MPDDID Even in her epilogue she takes to task the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation ISSTD and some of its major contributors Ironically as I was doing research on the veracity of the book I came across uite a heated debate between the author and members of the ISSTD The author had been accused of portraying things improperly in the book and was not taking criticism well This includes the fact that since the book has been out people are fact checking the book and finding major errors in her work A specific reference I can uote is one where she misuotes someone from the ISSTD This person has written a letter advising what she actually stated to the authorAll in all if you read the book critically and don t buy into the author s manipulation of facts and remember that none of the three woman she tries to condemn are here to dispute any of her claims I think the book actually can be taken one of two ways either as a really good book of fiction itself OR as proof that Sybil was true and that her primary guide through this thing we now know as DID did they very best she could knowing the time in which she experienced the things she didOtherwise don t get caught up in all of the out of context facts the glaring agendas and the inflammatory languageIf you want to use this to fire yourself up buy it but do so in real copy it s very hard to note and verify notes in the Kindle version Better yet get it from the library so you don t have to give her any cash It s not worth it Otherwise stick to something better because this really isn t worth the trouble la-conspiration-des-dieux-iv-nbsp-nbsp-l-ultime-trahison years after than 40000 people would be
