Understanding and Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder: A Relational Approach


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
Elizabeth Howell considers Dissociative Identitiy Disorder (DID) within the realm of relational psychoanalysis. She begins with an explanation of dissociation theory and research that includes the dynamic unconscious, trauma theory, attachment and neuroscience. She then discusses the identification and diagnosis of DID before moving on to outline a phase-oriented treatment plan which includes facilitating a multileveled co-constructed therapeutic relationship, emphasising the multiplicity of transferences, countertransferences and kinds of potential enactments. Howell expands the treatment possibilities to include dreamwork before moving on to discuss the risks involved in the treatment of DID and how to mitigate them. Elizabeth Howell wrote The Dissociative Mind in 2005.
