Dissociative disorders (DD) are conditions that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, awareness, identity, or perception. People with dissociative disorders use dissociation, as a defence mechanism, pathologically and involuntarily. Some dissociative disorders are triggered by psychological trauma, but dissociative disorders such as depersonalization/derealization disorder may be preceded only by stress, psychoactive substances, or no identifiable trigger at all. The dissociative disorders listed in the American Psychiatric Associations DSM-5 are as follows: Dissociative identity disorder (formerly multiple personality disorder): the alternation of two or more distinct personality states with impaired recall among personality states. In extreme cases, the host personality is unaware of the other, alternating personalities; however, the alternate personalities can be aware of all the existing personalities. This category now includes the old derealization disorder category.[further ...
Dissociative disorders are frequent and clinically relevant conditions in psychiatric populations. Yet, their recognition in clinical practice is often poor. This study evaluated the performance of three well known and internationally used dissociation scales in screening for dissociative disorders. Consecutively treated out- and day care-patients (n = 160) from several psychiatric units in Switzerland completed the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES), Somatoform Dissociation Questionnaire (SDQ-20), and Multidimensional Inventory for Dissociation (MID). The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Dissociative Disorders-Revised (SCID-D-R) was then administered. Test performance of the scales was analyzed by receiver operating characteristic curves. The diagnostic accuracy, represented by the area under the curve, did not differ significantly between the three summary scales. Cut-off scores for detecting at least 80 % of any dissociative disorder and dissociative ...
This will be an open single arm pilot clinical trial on patients with dissociative disorders, admitted to the psychiatric emergency unit of Geneva and in the Hogan Psychotherapeutic Center in Montreux. Patients will be interviewed according to the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) and, if their score is 30 or higher, the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Dissociative Disorders (SCID) will be administered and, if the outcome on SCID is positive, the patient can be included in the study.. The patients will be treated by a psychiatrist who has experience with the use of the specific combined treatment for dissociative disorders (Damsa et al., 2005). ...

Brain and body are coupled by the autonomic nervous system. Emotions evoke "top-down" autonomic responses and are shaped by "bottom-up" afferent somatic feedback. This psychophysiological integration is supported by shared autonomic and emotional neuroanatomical pathways. Emotional stress disrupts normative autonomic function, typically through sympathoexcitation. Conversely, in dissociative disorders, emotional stress may suppress sympathoexcitation despite subjective emotional distress. Psychophysiological decoupling is further observed in forms of dysautonomia defined by autonomic overexcitation, resulting in emotional symptoms via interoception of dysautonomic symptoms. The study of these disorders elucidates mechanisms of psychophysiological integration and improves our pathophysiological understanding of affective, autonomic and dissociative disorders.. ...

With about 100 cases studies, the incidence of the disorder is not precisely known.[9] Individuals of multiple backgrounds have been reported as having the disorder. The syndrome tends to be more common in men (75%), with a male to female ratio of 4:1.[1] It has been most frequently seen in individuals ages 15 to 40 and has also been observed in children.[10] This wide age range is derived from case studies, and therefore may not be an accurate estimate. Ganser syndrome has also been observed in groups other than prison populations.[11] To date, no definitive cause or reason of the disorder has been established.[12] The sources that classify the syndrome as a dissociative disorder[6] or a factitious disorder, conflict in their proposed etiologies. As a result, there are a number of theories as to why the syndrome develops. Ganser syndrome was previously classified as a factitious disorder, explaining the symptoms as mimicking of what patients perceive as typical of a psychosis, even though they ...
Domestic violence (DV) against women is a serious problem with its negative effects on all family members and the society. Women exposed to DV not only have physical but also psychological damage. This study investigates prevalence of DV and its relations with some descriptive and clinical features in a psychiatric outpatient population in Turkey. A total of 277 female outpatients were included in the study. After a semistructured clinical interview, they were assessed by sociodemographic data form, DV questionnaire, Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS), Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HARS), Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES), and Somatoform Dissociation Questionnaire (SDQ ...
The body-oriented therapy protocol was delivered in three stages, involving massage, body awareness exercises, and an inner-body focusing process. The massage-therapy protocol was standardized and served as a relative control condition to address the lack of touch-based comparisons in bodywork research. Both protocols were delivered over clothes.. Indicators of three key constructs were measured: psychological well-being, physical well-being and body connection. Symptoms were measured using the Brief Symptom Inventory, Dissociative Experiences Scale, Crime-Related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Scale, a medical-symptoms checklist, scales of body connection, and investment. Results were gathered at baseline, two times during intervention, post-intervention, and at one month and three months follow-up. Both statistical and qualitative analyses were used to provide both empirical and experiential perspectives on the process. The subjects also completed a demographic questionnaire at baseline, a ...
BackgroundDepersonalization disorder (DPD) is characterized by a subjective sense of unreality, disembodiment, emotional numbing and reduced psychogenic (sudomotor) sympathoexcitation.AimsThree related experiments utilized escalating physical and emotional challenges in 14 DPD participants and 16 controls aimed to elucidate (i) whether the cardiovascular sympathetic (SNS) and parasympathetic (PNS) nervous systems are implicated in DPD pathophysiology and (ii) if possible, to determine whether the blunted sympathoexcitation in DPD is peripherally or centrally mediated.MethodParticipants completed the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Dissociative Experience Scale (DES), and Cambridge Depersonalization Scale (CDS). Study I recorded heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) during 5 min supine baseline, 3 min sustained handgrip (HG), 3 min cold pressor (CP) and 5 min 60° head-up tilt (HUT). In study II, HR, BP, and heart rate variability (HRV) were recorded during 5 min simultaneous 60° HUT and continuous
I was diagnosed with DID abouot 2 and a half years ago when I was suffering from non-epileptic partial seizures by the truckload on a daily basis and personalities started appearing after them. At first I was really disturbed by it and I was trying to get the help as the neurology department at hospital had referred me to psychiatry. However the psychiatry dept completely ignored me for months and months and so I learned to get on with it. Now, despite a few hitches from time to time I dont think I could ever consider trying to get them to integrate! I know that I am not a full person (and it truely shows when I get depressed and dissociate myself as all that remains it what is left of myself as I detach from the other fragments of myself) but if they integrated now I would be incredibly lonely, I would miss the people that they have become in my head and (this part makes me sound like a coward but I couldnt think of how to rephrase) I wouldnt have them to hide behind when my life problems ...

Hello Dismissed,When I first came down with PTSD, I didnt know what it was. My Dissociative Disorders concealed what was happening. "My dissociation dumbed me". To me I thought I had discovered something which no other man had experienced. I was having illusions actually. Over time these illusions drove me to become delusional. I was at the edge of insanity. Over time I became angry, but fortunately I never became violent. I was admitted into hospitals five times, four were voluntary and the final hospitalization was nonvoluntary by the court. My first four hospitalizations I was misdiagnosed by the doctors. They diagnosed me with acute paranoia and schizophrenia. Because of the lack of help I received and the zombi induced type of drugs I was given, I became suicidal. These were the worst times of my life. The doctors I had had no practice with dissociative disorders. The fellow patients in these clinics were a bunch of whiners with no real problems, divorcees looking for pity, others upset ...

Undiagnosed and untreated depression can lead to many complications in the battlefield. In the height of the depression, combatants with PCD can go in to fugue states. When they are under fugue states they become numbed and can be disoriented. This is a story of a soldier who went in to fugue state a result of overwhelming depression during the Eelam War. This combatant was found by a group of soldiers when he was wandering and heading towards the enemy lines. When questioned he had no idea how he came out if his bunker. In addition, there was no trace of his weapon. Probably he must have dropped it in the jungle. When he was referred for a psychiatric assessment, he denied any kind of substance abuse. There was no history of dissociative disorder. But he was depressed following the deaths of his platoon members. His depression was undiagnosed and untreated until he went in the depressive fugue ...
2) An addiction. False. It is addictive-like in that it helps people feel better, though temporary, and it often increases in severity and intensity over time.. 3) Any type of physical harm. False. The thing that distinguishes self-injury from other forms of physical harm is the elevated mood a teen experiences after self-injury.. 4) A behavior that means a person is psychotic. False. The person is in her right mind but tormented with issues enacted through self-harm.. 5) More than an attention getter. True. Some people think this is just a way to get attention when actually it is a cry for help and indicative of emotional pain.. 6) A way to feel alive. True. It breaks emotional numbness and reconnects the person to her body after a dissociative experience. She feels something, often feels alive due to the physical pain.. ...

We introduce a new scale, the Involuntary Autobiographical Memory Inventory (IAMI), for measuring the frequency of involuntary autobiographical memories and involuntary future thoughts. Using the scale in relation to other psychometric and demographic measures provided three important, novel findings. First, the frequency of involuntary and voluntary memories and future thoughts are similarly related to general measures of emotional distress. This challenges the idea that the involuntary mode is uniquely associated with emotional distress. Second, the frequency of involuntary autobiographical remembering does not decline with age, whereas measures of daydreaming, suppression of unwanted thoughts and dissociative experiences all do. Thus, involuntary autobiographical remembering relates differently to aging than daydreaming and other forms of spontaneous and uncontrollable thoughts. Third, unlike involuntary autobiographical remembering, the frequency of future thoughts does decrease with age. ...
Anxiety disorders are the most common and frequently misdiagnosed and undertreated of all mental health conditions. Dealing with Anxiety and Related Disorders: Understanding, Coping, and Prevention explains in accessible language the myths, misunderstandings, and realities of anxiety disorders, including often misdiagnosed somatoform and dissociative disorders.Psychologist Rudy Nydegger approaches anxiety and related disorders, including panic disorder, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and PTSD, with the most up-to-date and professionally sound information available. The history of and theories about anxiety disorders are thoroughly discussed, as are the most recent ideas and findings. Readers are provided with comprehensive information on each disorder-its description, clinical symptoms, dynamics, and available treatments, including alternative and experimental approaches. Ways in which patients can get help and help themselves are discussed, as are steps family members and friends can

One hundred years ago Eugen Bleuler published his book, Dementia praecox or the group of schizophrenias. In it, he proposed the term schizophrenia to describe the most disturbed of his hospital patients, a word literally meaning "split mind" and close in many respects to contemporary conceptions of dissociation. Since that time, while the meaning of the diagnostic entity schizophrenia has changed considerably, its relation to trauma and dissociative disorders remains a complex and confusing one. Here, I want to briefly summarise our current understanding by discussing four important issues bearing on different aspects of the relation between trauma, dissociation, psychotic symptoms, and schizophrenia ...

Sandra Paulsen Inobe, PhD · 02/14/03 at 12:48 ET PTSD of all stripes are treatable with EMDR; people are urged to be evaluated for a dissociative disorder first tho if the trauma was very early and very sustained, and especially if the perpetrators were the very people to which the child was most attached. If you review this site, youll find many discussions of such cases. Physical violence in particular tends to produce a different set of defenses than emotional abuse or sexual abuse, to a degree. Survivors of physical violence hold alot of guardedness in the body, and its often challenging to get past the walls in the minds eye to the vulnerable feelings of pain and sadness. Trust is often an issue. All this can be surmounted with most clients, based on clinical experience (no research on this exact point re EMDR). ...

I wasnt however prepared to hear that I truly was bipolar, I really wanted to let that one go too. The others, like the panic and anxiety, yes, I could accept that, my car accident, and PTSD, all that was pretty explainable...the ADD certainly threw me for a loop, but I could see how it wouldnt be that far fetched, now the other two...the Visual Perception Disorder, and the Dissociative Disorder...those two, I hadnt even heard of, while it explained alot, I kind of wanted to push those away. Nothing can be done at all for the visual perception disorder because it basically means, I am both right and left brain dominant, the problem with this is that it generally is diagnosed as a child, and I believe I was diagnosed with it at age 35. Was far too late for correction as it is a learning issue...it means, I would have to relearn everything I ever have to conform with the same way others learn, basically, impossible, I have adapted in my own ways. I had too. Most dont understand this condition ...

The discourse of the American Psychiatric Associations DSM reflects the inherently dialogic or contradictory nature of its stated mandate to demonstrate both nosological completeness and cultural inclusiveness. Psychiatry employs the dialogic discourse of the DSM in a one-sided, positivistic manner by identifying what it considers universal mental disease entities stripped of their cultural context. In 1992 the editors of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders proposed to introduce possession into their revisions. A survey of the discussions about introducing possession as a dissociative disorder to be listed in the DSM-IV indicates a missed epistemological break. Subsequently the editors of the DSM-5 politically recuperated possession into its official discourse, without acknowledging the anarchic challenges that possession presents to psychiatry as a cultural practice. ...

The functional role of sex and pregnancy in transgenerational Satanic Cults is described and contrasted with its purpose in "normal" social groups. These observations are based on the reports of former Satanic cult members who are now being treated for some type of dissociative disorder. In "normal" social groups, the primary functions of sex and pregnancy center on perpetuating the gene pool of group members. In Satanic cults, however, the primary function of sex is to form a bond between some type of painful stimulation and physical pleasure. ...

We investigated trimethylacetic acid (TMAA) adsorption on stoichiometric and oxygen-deficient CeO 2(111) surfaces using density functional theory that accounts for the on-site Coulomb interaction via a Hubbard term (DFT+U) and long-range dispersion correction. Both the molecular state and dissociative state (TMAA → TMA- + H +) were identified on stoichiometric and oxygen-deficient CeO 2(111) surfaces. For the stoichiometric surface, two thermodynamically favorable configurations with adsorption energies of the order of -30 kcal/mol are identified; one is a molecule adsorption state, and the other one is a dissociative state. For the oxygen-deficient surface, dissociative states are more favorable than molecular states. Moreover, the most favorable configuration is the dissociative adsorption of TMAA with the adsorption energy of the order of -77 kcal/mol. The dissociated TMA moiety takes the position of oxygen vacancy, forming three Ce-O bonds. The signature vibrational frequencies for these ...
Results Preliminary data demonstrates that of 88 patients with drop attacks 79 were female, mean age 44 (range 16-78), mean duration of attacks 61 months (1-388). Secondary drop attacks were recorded rarely (n=2, cataplexy, Chiari malformation).. Dissociative symptoms during a brief prodrome (n=40) and after the attack (n=9) were common. Characteristically, patients did not recall the fall itself. Twenty six patients had episodes of dissociation unrelated to their drop attacks (n=19 dissociative seizures with loss of consciousness, n=14 had dissociation with preserved consciousness). There were high levels of fatigue (n=61), sleep disturbance (n=59), chronic pain (n=40) and comorbid functional neurological disorders (n=51). Some patients improved with techniques used in dissociative seizures. ...

Adolescents with cancer may demonstrate problems in their self-esteem and schooling. This study aims to screen the preadolescents and adolescents more at risk in their self-esteem perception and schooling difficulties post-five years from the end of therapy. Twenty-five paediatric ex-patients healed from leukaemia were recruited at the Haematology-Oncologic Clinic (University of Padua). The mean age of the children was 13.64 years (Standard Deviation (SD)) = 3.08, range = 10-19 years), most were treated for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) (84%) and relatively equally distributed by gender. They filled in the Multidimensional Self-Esteem Test, while parents completed a questionnaire on their childs schooling. Global self-esteem was mostly below the 50 percentile (58.5%), especially regarding interpersonal relationships (75%). An independent sample t-test showed significant mean differences on the emotionality scale (t = 2.23; degree of freedom (df) = 24; p = 0.03) and in the bodily experience scale

The Acholi tribe, which inhabits much of the worst affected regions of northern Uganda, believe in the existence of jogi - spirits or forces that can be either good or evil (Mpyangu, 2010). Usually in conflict and post-conflict zones inhabitants complain of hunger, mortality, disease, poverty, homelessness. However, the Acholi are more concerned about the vengeful spirits of those killed during the conflict. They are believed to have a pernicious influence if not appeased. The cen, or polluting spiritual force, possesses those who have killed, done wrong, witnessed a killing, or touched the body of a corpse, by entering that persons mind or body resulting in dissociative states, nightmares, flashbacks or psychosis that remain until the wrongdoing is put right (Mpyangu, 2010). The Acholi also believe that cen is contagious and can infect an entire family or community (SWAY, 2008). Consequently anyone thought to be haunted by cen is shunned and avoided by the community ...
