From the harsh reality of war a father's PTSD is borne, casting his child into a continuum of torment and profound terror. This is the story of her survival through the power of hope and of imagination. More than a memoir, it is the story of the protection of the Self through Multiplicity.
Offering a compelling and important glimpse into a little understood psychological phenomenon, Hope Street moves seamlessly between the now and then of the material world, the grace of imagination, and the profoundly individual perspectives of multiple selves.
Rhonda Macken tells the story of how she survived a childhood and adolescence of trauma to later thrive as a composer, teacher, wife, mother and friend. A testament as much to the power of human creativity and resilience as to the journey of psychotherapy, Hope Street is not only a dynamic story but also an important psychological case study.
