1 Surprisingly many people have heard of this 1957 work, even though they cannot remember ever having read the book or seen the movie. Perhaps it is the brilliant title that we remember. Eve was the work of two psychiatrists who treated Chris Costner Sizemore. 2 Their popularized book of the case became a best-seller, and the movie did well. But Eve did not begin the modern movement. No one who writes in movement literature has a good word to say for the book, and many critics voice harsh judgment of her psychiatrists.
Thus there may be gaps in the recent past (it turns out) because the main, public, personality has been replaced by an alter, of whose activities the host has no memory. There are less blatant clues about time. After taking a life history, the clinician may notice that the narrative does not hang together very well. The patient is hazy about the past, and cannot recall what happened when, or is confused about the sequence of life events. Perhaps that is because unknown alters have taken control from time to time, and the host personality has no idea what they did or when they did it.
Early attempts tended to be unstable, for if one person switched into an aggressive alter during a meeting, everyone else felt threatened. Unless there is a nonmultiple facilitator present, more switching may occur, and pandemonium can break out. One group that has tried to get itself together is in Ashville, North Carolina, where the Highland Hospital has a Dissociative Disorders Unit. In January 1993, some of its clients formed a Multiple Personality Consortium, now legally incorporated as a nonprofit organization.
