Dissociative Identity Disorder Treatment
Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder, is a complex psychological condition that is likely caused by severe trauma, often during early childhood (usually extreme, repetitive physical, sexual, or emotional abuse).
DID is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states that continually have power over the person’s behavior.
DID treatment is very unique and requires highly-skilled and experienced licensed therapists like we have at the Beach Cottage. Using the Reconnect Integrative Trauma Treatment Program, we provide each client up to 70 individual sessions per month, which creates an optimum healing environment for anyone who is suffering with DID.
Some common symptoms are:
- Depersonalization: This is a sense of being detached from one’s body and is often referred to as an “out-of-body” experience.
- Derealization: This is a feeling that the world is not real or looking foggy or far away.
- Amnesia: This is the failure to recall significant personal information that is so extensive it cannot be blamed on ordinary forgetfulness.
- Identity confusion or identity alteration: Both of these involve a sense of confusion about who a person is. An example of identity confusion is when a person has trouble defining the things that interest them in life, or their political or religious or social viewpoints, sexual orientation, or their professional ambitions. In addition to these apparent alterations, the person may experience distortions in time, place, and situation.
