Title: Dissociation : Vol. 5, No. 3, p. 159-162 : The imaginary companion experience in multiple personality disorder
Author: Sanders, Barbara
Abstract: This study used a standardized written inquiry to obtain basic descriptive information on the imaginary companion experience in a small sample of individuals with multiple personality disorder. Fourteen of twenty-two multiples recalled imaginary companions from their childhood. Data on the recalled ages of the experience, the vividness of the experience, family responses to the companion, activities engaged in with the companion, and functions served by the companion are summarized. The results are compared with those for college students, and the relation between imaginary companions and alter personalities is discussed.
