Trauma/abuse memories with a client diagnosed with MPD
Dissociation is the result of overwhelming trauma. The major feature of patients with Dissociative Disorders is a disturbance or alteration in the normally integrative functions of identity, memory, or consciousness (American Psychiatric Association, 1987). “The task of psychotherapy is to re-associate disrupted memory patterns, to restore a continuity of consciousness, and to assimilate the patient’s identity into a unified whole” (Steele, 1988, p. 151).
