TANGO From Chaos To Creativity
How Multiple Personalities Emerge and Move Toward Integration
About the Author
Jean Rothwell Pollack is a psychologist, mediator, EMDR certified therapist, and life performance coach who has a private practice in Pennsylvania. She teaches Mind Body graduate psychology courses in Los Angeles, CA. Having studied in Buenos Aires, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Philadelphia, she has been a student of ballroom dance and tango for more than twenty years.
This man’s haunting story of devastating abuse evolves through years of therapy with me. Yet, as a work of creative nonfiction, the book shares the true life and healing of this man – his abuse, his words, and his poetry.
Throughout the pages, Jacen’s poetic descriptions are highlighted because they beautifully acknowledge his separate personalities and their communication and progression toward integration.
The book chronicles the patient’s childhood memories of abuse and his complex way of coping which helped him to survive his ongoing abuse. The dialogue and relationship that develops among the parts is a soulful and rewarding “dance.”
This book was written because Jacen’s story had to be told. His words and poetry deepen one’s understanding of the process of dissociation and offer hope to those who have suffered abuse.
Tango from Chaos to Creativity: How Multiple Personalities Emerge and Move Toward Integration is for anyone who has lost themselves and for the dancer in everyone who seeks truth, beauty, poetry, and connection. Furthermore, it is a story of hope – hope for everyone who has been hurt or abused.
The International Women’s Writing Guild also features Tango from Chaos to Creativity.
A lyrical glimpse inside
This is an excellent book. The journeys inside the patient’s mind and his past are given in detailed and poetic language, and are worth the price of the book alone. However, there is also some very good information about how the therapist worked with the patient using EMDR and “parts” (or “others”)therapy, and it is written clearly and is easy to understand.
I would have liked more detail about the therapies, hence only 4 stars, so I am hoping this author will give us another book. This one is well worth the read.
This book is well written and easy to understand
This book brings new light to the repercussions of childhood trauma as seen from the patient’s and the therapist’s perspective. His journey from chaos to wholeness is one that gives hope and appreciation as to the internal processes of the mind. In addition, Dr. Pollack’s description of the therapeutic modalities gives understanding as to how EMDR works to integrate the different parts of the mind. The book is well written and easy to understand.
Tango, a wonderful book about survival and thriving
This is the amazing story of a man who comes to wholeness through work with his therapist. Dr. Pollack, his therapist, chronicles his journey from dissociative episodes and a feeling of separateness to a complete, whole personality. It is a moving, touching story of one man’s efforts to find the creativity in life and to live in that creativity. The book is enthralling and gives the reader an uplifting experience thorough his own and Dr. Pollack’s words.
