dc.description.abstractThe diagnosis of 'Multiple Personality Disorder' has been changed to 'Dissociative Identity Disorder' because this phenomenon is not only about a person having split, multiple personalities, but also about what they are experiencing in terms of the dissociation between their multiple identities. Dissociation is the disconnection and/or separation of one psychological process from another. The dissociation that characterizes this disorder is how the identities are entirely separate from each other, and how the person switches from one personality to another (Barlow & Durand, 2015). In DID, the person has coped with horrendous, repeated trauma by literally splitting themselves up - psychologically dividing themselves - into multiple identities to cope. In this article, I will review relevant, recent literature on DID. The purpose of this article is to enlighten readers on DID, a commonly misunderstood disorder. I will do so in three parts: phenomenology, etiology, and treatment.
