When to suspect and how to diagnose dissociative identity disorder

Description

Previously undiagnosed dissociative identity disorder (DID) may be present in individuals being assessed for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Previously undiagnosed DID was present in 3.9% of 1,529 general adult psychiatric inpatients in 10 studies conducted in 6 different countries. In this article, a case of likely DID that was missed in a published case report is presented, and guidelines for when to suspect and how to diagnose DID are provided. Such guidelines are missing from the training of many mental health professionals.
