A Introduction to Dissociative Identity Disorder

  • NASW-Michigan (Manpower Building) 741 North Cedar Street Lansing, MI, 48906 United States (map)

Course Description:

"Dissociative identity disorder (DID), formerly referred to as multiple personality disorder, is a condition wherein a person's identity is fragmented into two or more distinct personality states. People with this rare condition are often victims of severe abuse" (Psyhcology Today). According to NAMI, "A person may feel like one or more voices are trying to take control in their head. Often these identities may have unique names, characteristics, mannerisms and voices. People with DID will experience gaps in memory of every day events, personal information and trauma." This workshop will provide an overview of DID and what social workers need to know. The format will be informal and discussion oriented. Please bring questions and/or case scenarios to discuss. *Warning, some difficult content may be discussed.*
