Integrative Techniques in the Treatment of DID

About the Course:

It is generally felt that the treatment of dissociative identity disorder (DID) should proceed through a series of steps or phases, in a rough chronological order, which eventually leads to a final fusion or integration of the patient/client’s ego states. In a general sense these stages or phases move from accurate diagnosis, with some acceptance of the diagnosis, through a variety of communication stages of alter states, working through or metabolizing traumatic memories and feelings and then an integration, with the acquisition of non-dissociative defenses for more adaptive living. This presentation will review the integration literature and then present a range of integration, consolidation interventions and strategies, including approaches that utilize time-effective and paradoxical methods. Emphasis will be placed upon the timing of interventions, the drawbacks of some approaches, realistic expectations for treatment and an examination of how the tone of treatment changes during the final phases. Case questions will be encouraged to promote participant involvement.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, Integrative Techniques in the Treatment of DID created by Peter Maves, PhD in 2020.
