Dissociative Identity Disorder: Information Leaflet for Professionals (PDF)


A simple, straightforward free PDF explaining the causes, prevalence and treatment approaches for dissociative identity disorder (DID) – aimed specifically at professionals but also relevant to survivors and their supporters.

Dissociative identity disorder (DID) is the name we give to a collection of responses to trauma that occurs repeatedly at a very early age. In this leaflet, written to explain it in simple but comprehensive terms specifically with professionals in mind, I cover the follow topics:

  • basis of treatment guidelines or pathway
  • definition
  • prevalence
  • etiology
  • diagnosis
  • symptoms of dissociative disorders
  • treatment
  • issues for therapists
  • working with ‘alter personalities’
  • recommendations for treatment
