Dissociative Identity Disorder – Fusion Through ‘As If’
Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.
~ Signund Freud
Dr. Earl W. Flora provides therapy in Williamsburg, VA, for all ages with a wide range of individual mental health issues, family, work, and related issues. His specialty is treating Dissociative Identity Disorder, and here he adds this interesting perspective to reintegration/fusion.
Along with a full range of psychological issues, Dr. Flora utilizes a well-publicized but seldom used single sentence to quickly assess & identify DID clients. In addition, he has developed an abbreviated technique for working with clients suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder by avoiding the use of abreaction to bring the personas together, without forcing them to relive the negative effects of the event that caused their separation in the first place.
It’s about time… time to recover.
Only after spending 27 years developing and validating the technique has he published his book titled Then They Were One – Fusion Without Abreaction, in which he describes his technique in great detail.

236 Jeff Chilton, raised in Pacific Northwest, studied ethnomycology at the University of Washington in the late sixties. In 1973 he started work on a commercial mushroom farm in Olympia, Washington. During the next 10 years, he became the production manager, responsible for the cultivation of over 2 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms per year. He was also involved in the research and development of shiitake, oyster and enoki mushrooms which resulted in the earliest US fresh shiitake sales in 1978.
In the 1980’s he operated a mushroom spawn business and in 1989 he started Nammex, a company that introduced medicinal mushrooms to the US nutritional supplement industry. He traveled extensively in China during the 1990’s, attending conferences and visiting research facilities and mushroom farms. In 1997, he organized the first workshop for organic certification of mushrooms in China.
A founding member of the World Society for Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products in 1994 and a Member of the International Society for Mushroom Science, Mr. Chilton’s company was the first to offer a complete line of Certified Organic mushroom extracts to the US nutritional supplement industry. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement companies and are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds.
His mission: He challenges the industry for higher standards and transparency with mushroom products. He wants people to have access to quality products and have the knowledge to properly identify these products in the marketplace.
