Description

Clients with dissociative identity disorder (DID) or dissociative disorder not otherwise specified (DDNOS) live with a multiple reality disorder (Kluft, 1989) where parts are often living in the past and are not aware of where they are, the current date, or the time. The goal of this resource is to reduce the anxiety of parts living in the past and increase the client's ability to differentiate the past from the present. This is done in the following manner: (1) Make a list of all the information that allows parts to know where they are in present time or list the information that the disoriented parts specifically need to have. (2) Install the information with dual attention stimulation (DAS). (3) Use DAS to facilitate internal communication among the parts.
