Positive Outcomes for Dissociative Survivors (PODS)


PODS was set up in 2010 in order to help people find appropriate support and to do whatever they can to make recovery from dissociative disorders a reality.  They provide some pointers as to what they can offer directly, and then what other sources of help are out there.
START WITH THEIR WEBSITE.  They have an entire section of the website dedicated to information: click here. You’ll find over 125 articles, many by Carolyn Spring, as well as a large number from other survivors and also a number of professionals working in this field. The articles are divided into various categories:

INTRODUCTORY INFORMATION ABOUT DISSOCIATION AND DISSOCIATIVE DISORDERS.   They have produced a leaflet called Information for Professionals: Dissociative Identity Disorder which is also relevant to survivors. You can download a free PDF here, or you can buy the printed version here.
There are also a number of articles on the PODS website which provide information that might be helpful.
PODS offers a support service and helpline run by Elisabeth Allan, who also manages the counselling service:
