HOW THE HUMAN MIND PROTECTS US FROM TRAUMA

Marc Montgomery talks to Helen Slinger, the director of the critically acclaimed documentary, When the Devil Knocks. It's the story of Hilary Stanton, an Alberta woman who suffered such horrific childhood abuse that her mind fragmented into dozens of alternate personalities. The film documents how, with the help of psychotherapy, Stanton was able to integrate all those "alters" into her core personality to become "whole" again. ( Photo: CBC.CA )
