Title: Dissociation : Vol. 4, No. 1, p. 039-045 : The influence of "espiritismo" on a case of mulitple personality disorder
Author: Ronquillo, Edison B.
Abstract: Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) has been studied through individual case studies and large scale clinical studies. The author, in presenting a Hispanic case of MPD, cites needed attention for further research into ethno-cultural phenomena which can interplay with the phenomenology and dynamics of MPD. The article focuses on the relationship of a belief system practiced or believed by many Hispanics which is "Espiritismo " (spiritualism) and the syndrome of MPD. Etiological and belief system factors are elucidated in the case study. Assessment and treatment considerations that emphasize cultural sensitivity are highlighted.
