Title: Dissociation : Vol. 5, No. 2, p. 111-116 : Dream wars: a case study of a woman with multiple personality disorder
Author: Paley, Karen Surman, 1947-
Abstract: This paper is an addition to the limited literature on the use of dream work with patients having multiple personality disorder (MPD). Dreams can be used in clinical practice to: aid in the breakdown of barriers erected to block memories of childhood abuse, recognize alter personalities, control malevolent alters, and identify and reduce conflicts among personalities. An illustrative case report of the treatment of an alleged satanic ritual abuse survivor demonstrates the vitiation of a perpetrator alter through dream work. The balance of power within the host personality shifted as non-perpetrating personalities lined up to isolate the abuser.
