Are You Struggling With Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)?
Dissociative Identity Disorder is when people experience a fragmented sense of self, with more than one “part” or personality that takes control of a person’s identity at various times. DID is usually associated with people who experienced trauma during childhood.
Available Treatment Options
Therapist interventions for people with DID include psychoeducation, where a professional explains what DID is, how it can affect people, and how it affects them. From there, interventions may focus on relieving the most distressing symptoms, such as processing emotions, integrating different personalities, or understanding their role in the person’s experience. Some therapists and clients may focus on the childhood trauma that led to the dissociation. This focus can help a person understand the root of their disorder and can sometimes bring them clarity and more well-being.
