Presentation Transcript

  1. Dissociative Identity Disorder

  2. DID • People lose contact with their consciousness (or portions of their consciousness) or memory, resulting in disruptions of their sense of identity • Co-existence in one person of two or more largely complete and usually very different personalities

  3. DID • Goes far beyond “different roles” • Each person has different mannerisms, names, traits • Personalities are often unaware of each other • Much more diagnosed since the 1980’s, more cases or helped along?

  4. CAUSES • Intentional Role-Playing- making up for personal failings • Some therapists may even help create • Sexual Abuse- severe emotional trauma in childhood

  5. Dissociative Fugue • People lose their memory for their entire lives along with their sense of personal identity • Remember implicit tasks like drive a car and how to do math
