Title: Dissociation : Vol. 5, No. 4, p. 236-241 : An overview of family treatment in dissociative disorders
Author: Benjamin, Lynn R.; Benjamin, Robert
Abstract: Family treatment interventions, in contradistinction to family therapy, are an important concomitant to individual therapy in the treatment of multiple personality disorder (MPD). Such interventions have the potential to restore trustworthy relationships in the family and, thus, to promote the healing of the individual patient and other family members. This article discusses some of the possible modalities of treatment, including parallel therapy with a partner, marriage therapy, child therapy, parenting counseling, group therapy with MPD mothers, and group therapy with partners or parents of individuals with MPD. It also explores some of the philosophical underpinnings of these approaches with particular emphasis on ethical concepts derived from Contextual Family Therapy.
