How many of us have wondered if dissociative identity disorder is “real”? There’s certainly a lot of debate in the field about this topic, and I myself have questioned DID since first reading about it in the late 90’s. My guest today, Dr. Chrissy Mannion, has extensive experience treating DID. Chrissy and I discuss many aspects of DID, including:
- The history and debate around DID’s authenticity
- The relationship between DID and trauma
- “Red flags” to look for when assessing for DID
- Treatment options for individuals with DID
Cool Things Mentioned
- The Testing Psychologist mastermind groups and business consulting
- Frasier’s Table therapeutic exercise
