dc.description.abstractIn a non-random sample of 415 students at the University of Idaho, the distribution of Dissociative Experience Scale (DES) scores was positively skewed with 9% of the sample scoring above 30 on the instrument. Dissociative Disorders Interview Schedule (DDIS) interviews were conducted with eighteen individuals who scored above 30 on the DES and a stratified random sample of nine people who scored less than 30. The interviewers were blind to the participants' DES scores. Of the eighteen people who were interviewed and scored above 30 on the DES, sixteen met the criteria for one of the dissociative disorders (89%), including four who met the criteria for multiple personality disorder (MPD). This suggests that those who score above 30 on the DES in a university sample may be at risk for one of the dissociative disorders. It further suggests that from 5% to 10% of groups similar to those sampled may be at risk for a dissociative disorder.en
