Title: Dissociation : Vol. 2, No. 4, p. 239-242 : Dissociative Experiences in Adolescents and College Students
Author: Ross, Colin A.; Ryan, Lynne; Anderson, Geri; Ross, Dana; Hardy, Lesley
Abstract: The authors administered the Dissociative Experiences Scale to 168 children aged 12-14, 345 college students with a median age 24 years, and 30 patients in a Geriatric Day Hospital. Scores were distributed in a highly left-skewed fashion, with no differences between males and females among the adolescents or college students. The median score for the adolescents was 17. 7 for the college students 7. 9 and for the elderly 4.8. These findings suggest that dissociative experiences are more common in early adolescence than in young adulthood, and that they continue to decline with increasing age after the third decade.
