bulletMy Résumé

Hello, my name is "Pat", Patricia D. McClendon, and I am interested in health and mental health issues, and especially in the effects of all types of trauma on the minds and bodies of survivors. Identifying and communicating effective treatment protocol for trauma survivors is, in part, what I hope this home page accomplishes. I am most interested in dissociative disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Be sure to visit the Ego-State Therapy and the Int'l. Society for the Study of Dissociation web sites. I have been a member of Int'l. Society for the Study of Dissociation, ISSD, formerly called the Int'l. Society for the Study of Multiple Personality & Dissociation, ISSMP&D, since 1988.

Since web sites' content change all the time, a web surfer warning is in order. An old AA (Alcoholic Anonymous) saying: "Take what you need and leave the rest" applies to the "links" at my web site as well as the rest of the Internet. Click here to hear a welcome message (69 Kb .wav, 8 Bit, Mono).

Special note to survivors: Please make sure that "support" is available to you before venturing to any abuse/support websites!
