Dissociative Identity Disorder: Difference between revisions

Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly Multiple Personality Disorder, is a psychological diagnosis listed in the dissociative disorders section of the Diagnostics Standards Manual and also in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems. It has had a highly controversial history, falling into and out of popularity amongst psychologists. An internet community, the Healthy Multiplicity community, has a very different take on the diagnosis, and on related conditions.
It is similar to [[tulpamancy]], in that it is an experience of [[plurality]]. These personpersons experience alters, which are like other personalities, that can take over the body. The original idea is that all persons experiencing this condition must have had advanced trauma at some time in the past, causing it, but this is controversial.
