Abstract

Chronic Dissociative Disorders (especially DID, ASDD and depersonalization disorder) can be perceived as  complex posttraumatic disorders.

Dissociative disorders are not easy to diagnose for the following reasons:

  1. Definitions on dissociation differ and are not always clear. Some clinicians consider dissociation a phenomenon that exists on an continuum (from normal to pathological) other consider dissociation a phenomenon that is always pathological and refers to a division of self.
  2. Patients generally do not present with dissociative symptoms but have a tendency to hide or dissimulate these symptoms.
  3. There is a lot of overlap with other disorders such as complex PTSD and cluster B personality disorders
  4. Differential diagnosis from psychosis and bipolar disorder may be difficult
  5. Main classification systems (DSM and ICD) differ with respect to dissociative disorders
  6. Clinicians do not receive systematic education with regard to diagnosis and treatment of dissociative disorders

As a consequence of poor recognition of dissociative symptomatology, these patients may spend many years in the mental health system, often with different diagnoses, without being  treated for their core problems. In addition, if dissociative pathology is not assessed or recognized , treatment of traumatic  memories with methods like EMDR may be dangerous and  result in decompensation of the patient. On the other hand, there is a danger of over diagnosing and false positive cases as both patients as well as therapist sometimes get confused about the symptoms.

Clinical vignettes and video clips will be used as illustration!

Attention! These materials will not be included in the record of seminar, that is why your personal presence is very important for the receipt of complete presentation!

The TADS-I (Boon & Matthess, 2016) is a clinician-administered semi-structured interview to assess dissociative symptoms and disorders and other trauma-related symptoms. This interview differs from other semi-structured interviews in several ways: it enables the clinician to make DSM-5 and ICD-11 diagnoses; thus, it also includes a large section on somatoform dissociative symptoms. Secondly, it includes a section on other trauma-related symptoms in order to: (1) develop a more complete clinical picture of possible comorbidity, including symptoms of PTSD and complex PTSD; (2) achieve greater insight into the (possible) dissociative organization of the personality; and (3) differentiate complex dissociative disorders from personality disorders and other disorders, such as a (complex) posttraumatic stress disorder (CPTSD), mood disorder or psychotic disorders. Finally, the TADS-I aims at making a distinction between symptoms referring to a division of the personality and symptoms that may involve other alterations of consciousness.

 In this workshop I will present the interview and how to use it. Participant are required to have been present  ( or at least saw the video of)  at the earlier introductory workshop on the diagnoses is dissociative disorders.

The course is intended for psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists who is working with mental trauma of all therapeutic modes and directions

IMPORTANT!

Professor Boon providing this webinar for free, however the nominal price will be settled anyway.

Time forces me to set different terms of payment for Ukrainians and for citizens of other countries where there is no war now. I am very sorry to have to resort to such measures, but in my view, as Ukrainians are in a situation of greater vital and economic instability, it is right to do so. 

Citizens of the russian federation – the country of the terrorist and aggressor are not allowed at the events of the Center “The Tree of Knowledge”.
