  1. 1. What is a Dissociative Disorder?
  2. 2. Is it Obvious when a Person Switches Personalities? Some have trouble keeping a job and maintaining relationships because, abusive behavior is present in it. Subjects are at risk for engaging in drug and alcohol abuse (Stöppler, M. 22 June 2012). Unlike popular portrayals of dissociation in books and movies, most subjects work hard to hide the disorder of dissociation. Often function so well, especially under controlled circumstances, interact daily with family members, coworkers, neighbors, and others that may never know about the subjects chronically dissociative. Being able to hold highly responsible jobs, contributing to society in a variety of professions, the arts, and public service (Sidran. 2013).
  3. 3. What Other Mental Health Problems Are People with DID Likely to Have? In addition, subjects with Dissociative Disorders can have other diagnosable mental health problems at the same time. Typically these include depression, post - traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive symptoms, phobias, and self- harming behavior such as cutting, eating disorders, and high-risk sexual behaviors. Although getting expert treatment for the more common secondary issue, if the dissociative disorder is not addressed, recovery is generally short lived (Sidran. 2013).
  4. 4. If Its a Survival Technique, What’s the Down Side?
  5. 5. Because it is so effective, children who are very practiced at dissociating may automatically use it whenever a feeling of being threatened--even if the anxiety- producing situation is not extreme or abusive. Even after the traumatic circumstances are long past, the left-over pattern of defensive dissociation sometimes remains into adulthood. Habitual defensive dissociation may lead to serious dysfunction in school, work, social, and daily activities(Sidran. 2013).
