Title: Dissociation : Vol. 6, No.2/3, p. 162-180 : The treatment of traumatic memories: synthesis, realization, and integration
Author: Hart, Onno van der, 1941-; Steele, Katherine H.; Boon, Suzette; Brown, Paul
Abstract: This paper is based on Pierre Janet's dissociation theory and his concept of the non-realization of a traumatic event. A model of treatment that integrates Janet's dissociation-integration theory with contemporary trauma-based models of therapy is delineated. The nature of traumatic memories is described, and a stage-oriented model for their treatment in patients with multiple personality disorder (MPD) is presented. Ideally a discrete phase in the overall treatment of MPD, this phase can itself be subdivided into the following stages: (1) preparation; (2) synthesis; and (3) realization/integration. Although a number of treatment recommendations are offered, the emphasis here is more on clarifying concepts than on the description of techniques.
