Title: Dissociation : Vol. 3, No. 1, p. 048-053 : Dissociative Disorders in Impaired Psychiatry Residents and Graduate Students in Psychology
Author: Kluft, Richard P., 1943-
Abstract: Although the dissociative disorders remain controversial entities within American psychiatry, they are being recognized and treated with increasing frequency. In recent years the recognition of such conditions in very high functioning individuals, including physicians and psychologists, has been reported. The current communication describes the occurrence of dissociative disorders in distressed psychiatry residents and graduate students in psychology. Illustrative vignettes are offered, and the manner in which these individuals may demonstrate suggestive signs of such conditions is discussed. The optimistic prognosis for high-functioning dissociative disorder patients and the likelihood of prolonged difficulties if such conditions are not recognized makes it useful to have a high index of suspicion for such conditions in the troubled resident or graduate student.
