Title: Dissociation : Vol. 2, No. 1, p. 045-051: Multiple personality disorder: phenomenology of selected variables in comparison to major depression
Author: Schultz, Rosalyn; Braun, Bennett G.; Kluft, Richard P., 1943-
Abstract: Various findings from a retrospective survey of 355 multiple personality disorder (MPD) patients and 235 major depression patients, who served as a comparison group, are discussed. The survey was completed by 448 independent clinicians, 142 of whom contributed information on both an MPD and a major depression patient. The study confirms recent findings in the literature that MPD is not a rare disorder, its sufferers include a preponderance of females, and it is highly correlated with childhood trauma, especially sexual and physical abuse. In addition, the study indicates that clinicians who diagnose MPD perceive clinical phenomena in a manner similar to those clinicians who have not yet made this diagnosis.
