Title: Dissociation : Vol. 1, No. 1, p. 061-066 : Common Errors in the Treatment of Multiple Personality Disorder
Author: Greaves, George B.
Abstract: Psychotherapists report widely different experiences in their attempts at treating multiple personality disorder (MPD) patients. Some have deepened their interests and developed full-time specialized practices with this clinical population. Others have declined to have any further contact with them at all, referring possible MPD patients to colleagues when they first suspect that this disorder may be present. Still others have decided against treating more than one or two MPD patients. These diverse decisions are examined with a focus upon the effects of therapists' uneven attention to the formal properties of the dyadic psychotherapeutic experiences as a possible influence upon their future work with MPD. Problems concerning the framework of psychotherapy and the countertransference conflicts which often move the therapist unconsciously and irrationally to alter the canons of psychotherapy in mutually detrimental ways appear to be crucial determinants.
