This book is aimed at psychotherapy providers (although it is likely to also be of interest to sufferers and their families) who want to gain a comprehensive understanding of the essential principles of assessing and working with clients with DID. Using vignettes, the author describes the structure of the personality of someone with DID and guides the reader through the various assessment tools. Issues and considerations for each of the three stages of therapy are outlined and discussed. In the beginning stage, therapy focuses on stabilization, containment and strengthening the host. In the middle stage, the key elements include mapping the identities and working through trauma events. The Bask model is described as a method for this process. In the final stages of therapy, the author evaluates the concept of integration versus multiple living and describes some of the processes clients undergo towards the end of therapy.

Building on the comprehensive theoretical model of dissociation elegantly developed in The Dissociative Mind, Elizabeth Howell makes another invaluable contribution to the clinical understanding of dissociative states with Understanding and Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder. Howell, working within the realm of relational psychoanalysis, explicates a multifaceted approach to the treatment of this fascinating yet often misunderstood condition, which involves the partitioning of the personality into part-selves that remain unaware of one another, usually the result of severely traumatic experiences. Howell begins with an explication of dissociation theory and research that includes the dynamic unconscious, trauma theory, attachment, and neuroscience. She then discusses the identification and diagnosis of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) before moving on to outline a phase-oriented treatment plan, which includes facilitating a multileveled co-constructed therapeutic relationship, emphasizing the multiplicity of transferences, countertransferences, and kinds of potential enactments. She then expands the treatment possibilities to include dreamwork, before moving on to discuss the risks involved in the treatment of DID and how to mitigate them. All concepts and technical approaches are permeated with rich clinical examples.

The diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder, formerly known as multiple personality disorder, remains controversial, despite its inclusion as an established diagnosis in psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV). This book consists, first, of the detailed description of the treatment of a patient whose syndrome of DID emerged in the course of therapy, by a psychoanalyst who entered into the therapy as a complete skeptic. The therapist’s willingness to explore the meaning and reality of the dramatic and at times bizarre presentation of this disorder in a prolonged and difficult treatment was accompanied by an eventual successful outcome. Using this case as a reference point, the author then provides a contemporary exploration of the literature about the authenticity of this diagnosis and approaches to its treatment.

Since the publication of Colin A. Ross's influential work Multiple Personality Disorder in 1989, this challenging field has evolved rapidly--with new thinking, new research, and a new name: dissociative identity disorder (DID). Keeping pace with these developments, this retitled Second Edition has been skillfully revised and expanded to offer a comprehensive, detailed, and fully up-to-date grounding in the history, diagnosis, and treatment of DID. Readers will find three new chapters covering epidemiology, a sound critique of skeptics of DID, and the problem of attachment to the perpetrator and the locus of control shift. There is also a fresh look at the pathways leading to DID, a discussion of the false memory controversy, and more, with material throughout based on the latest research and the author's extensive clinical and forensic experience. By providing an in-depth examination of this complex illness, Dissociative Identity Disorder not only facilitates a deeper understanding of people who have used dissociation to cope with years of childhood physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, but also reveals new insights into many other psychiatric disorders in which dissociation plays a role. Like Multiple Personality Disorder, this updated volume is an authoritative and indispensable reference for psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses, social workers and other mental health professionals, as well as researchers in these fields. "Ross provides a comprehensive and interesting account of the history of MPD, dispelling many myths. He presents new insight into the treatment of MPD, with information about such concerns as how to talk to a patient, how to schedule your time, and how to keep your private and [professional] lives separate. . . . Multiple Personality Disorder will be an invaluable addition to the reference libraries of sexual abuse clinics, child abuse agencies, and correctional facilities, as well as clinicians." --Family Violence Bulletin

Traumatic Dissociation: Neurobiology and Treatment offers an advanced introduction to this symptom, process, and pattern of personality organization seen in several trauma-related disorders, including acute stress disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and the dissociative disorders. Our understanding of traumatic dissociation has recently been advanced by neuroimaging technology, empirically-based investigation, and an acknowledgment of its importance in psychopathology. The authors of this volume tie these findings together, tracking the condition from its earliest historical conceptualization to its most recent neurobiological understanding to provide even greater insight into traumatic dissociation and its treatment. Bringing together for the first time theoretical, cognitive, and neurobiological perspectives on traumatic dissociation, this volume is designed to provide both empirical and therapeutic insights by drawing on the work of many of the main contributors to the field. Opening chapters examine historical, conceptual, and theoretical issues and how other fields, such as cognitive psychology, have been applied to the study of traumatic dissociation. The following section focuses specifically on how neurobiological investigations have deepened our understanding of dissociation and concluding chapters explore issues pertinent to the assessment and treatment of traumatic dissociation. The interacting effects of traumatic experience, developmental history, neurobiological function, and specific vulnerabilities to dissociative processes that underlie the occurrence of traumatic dissociation are among some of the key issues covered. The book's significant contributions include A review of cognitive experimental findings on attention and memory functioning in dissociative identity disorder An appreciation of how the literature on hypnosis provides a greater understanding of perceptual processing and traumatic stress Ascertaining symptoms of dissociation in a military setting and in other situations of extreme stress An outline of key issues for planning assessment of traumatic dissociation, including a critique of its primary empirically supported standardized measures An examination of the association between child abuse or neglect and the development of eating disorders, suggesting ways to therapeutically deal with negative body experience to reduce events that trigger dissociation A description of neuroendocrine alterations associated with stress, pointing toward a better understanding of the developmental effects of deprivation and trauma on PTSD and dissociation A review of the relation of attachment and dissociation A discussion of new research findings in the neuroimaging of dissociation and a link between cerebellar functioning and specific peritraumatic experiences Useful as a clinical reference or as ancillary textbook, Traumatic Dissociation reorganizes phenomenological observations that have been overlooked, misunderstood, or neglected in traditional training. The research and clinical experience described here will provide the basis for further clinical and theoretical formulations of traumatic dissociation and will advance empirical examination and treatment of the phenomenon.

For clinicians, Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), or its progenitor Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD), is an important but beleaguered syndrome. It is immutably welded to the more general subject of trauma and abuse, and sits in the eye of the media storm. Since 1994 when the controversy surrounding DID culminated in the alteration of its very name and diagnostic criteria, DID (or MPD) has been held up to public and professional scrutiny. Its continued existence in the psychiatric lexicon will depend on the arguments and research that are generated. In the midst of the turmoil, this book offers a thoughtful and occasionally heated forum for skilled clinicians and academicians to grapple with the existence of DID, its prevalence, etiology, treatment modalities, and related controversies. Clinicians concerned and curious about this intense debate will find a thorough discussion of DID, its theoretical ramifications, and the extreme feelings that it evokes. Encounters with people diagnosed with DID invariably transform therapists into enthusiasts or skeptics. This is a book written by both enthusiasts and skeptics, and it will alternatively enrage and delight readers who themselves struggle with the diagnosis and its treatment.

The diagnosis of multiple personality disorder (MPD) entered the clinical mainstream with a rapidity and in a manner atypical for new descriptions of psychiatric illness. This book contains the most up-to-date information on MPD available written by experts in this field. The first section is a memorial to Cornelia B. Wilbur, M.D., a pioneer in MPD treatment. It is full of personal accounts from people who knew her well. The second section deals with general issues in the treatment of MPD. It discusses basic principles in conducting the psychotherapy of MPD, posttraumatic and dissociative phenomena in transference and countertransference, and treatment of MPD as a posttraumatic condition. The third section goes on to give case studies that illustrate the application of techniques, approaches, and insights that are considered important in the treatment of MPD patients but are difficult to learn because they have not been documented in detail in the literature. Methods discussed include the use of Amytal interviews, play therapy, egoûstate therapy, and the use of sand trays. The last section of the book discusses some of the contemporary concerns in the field (including consultation in the public psychiatric sector and the incidence of eating disorders in MPD patients), and on the recent history of the study of MPD.

Valerie Sinason's Treating Survivors of Satanist Abuse addressed a subject that many professionals working in the field had been uncomfortable discussing. Her work in disability and abuse has consistently broken new ground in addressing subjects that many people have found initially hard to deal with. This new book covers the equally unexplored subject of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), and is the first major British book available for both clinicians and the intelligent lay public on this subject. Attachment, Trauma and Multiplicity explains the phenomenon of DID, the conflicting models of the human mind that have been found to try and understand it, the political conflict over the subject, and, with the permission of patients, clinical accounts. Valerie Sinason, along with an impressive array of contributors, covers: the background history and a description of the condition issues of diagnoses treatment issues the stages of dissociation that lead to full-blown DID the legal and management problems. Attachment, Trauma and Multiplicity will be indispensable to professionals in the UK increasingly concerned about their lack of training in this subject and the fear it evokes in them and their teams.
