Beth's Village: Multiple Personality Disorder. When Beth was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder as a young adult, she thought her therapist was trying to exploit her. Eventually the diagnosis offered an explanation for how she survived an abused childhood. Her village, as she calls the personalities which emerged, protected her. As part of exploring the village, Beth began a diary on tape, which she shared with her friend Dan Gediman. Producer Jay Allison presents a portrait of her village and how Beth is learning who she really is.
