Title: Dissociation : Vol. 5, No. 1, p. 004-019 : A checklist for screening dissociative disorders in children and adolescents
Author: Reagor, Pamela A.; Kasten, John D.; Morelli, Nomi
Abstract: The development of the Child/Adolescent Dissociation Checklist (CADC) for screening children and adolescents for Multiple Personality Dissociative Disorders (MPD/DISS) was first reported at the Third International Conference on Multiple Personality/Dissociative States in 1986. The CADC consists of thirteen index characteristics. CADC total scare was found to be significantly associated with diagnosis of MPD/DISS. An initial study of the CADC as a screening tool for MPD/DISS was conducted in 1986, with a follow-up study being done one year later. While the reporting of MPD/DISS diagnoses dropped off between the 1986 and 1987 studies, MPD/DISS association with CADC score was maintained. Therapists stated that they found the CADC helpful with both clients and colleagues. Differences were explored in subsequent treatment course and circumstances between clients diagnosed MPD/DISS and those diagnosed otherwise in 1986. The CADC appears to be a valid and reliable screening tool, and the authors suggest further studies should involve application of the CADC by child protective, educational, and social service professionals.
