Sigmund Freud's Theory
Unconscious (unaware) mind into which we push,
or repress, all of our threatening urges and desires
These repressed urges, in trying to surface,
created nervous disorders.
Freud clearly states that the superego is an
agency that seeks to enforce the striving for
perfection, as it holds out to the ego ideal
standards and moralistic goals.
Conception of psychoanalysis of personality may
well be matched with the three personalities of
Ramanujam @Ambi.

clear consensus on diagnostic criteria or treatment.

take several years
Main component of treatment for dissociative identity disorder is
psychotherapy.

others and to experience feelings
may be done using individual, family, and/or group psychotherapy
Hypnosis

about their symptoms/identity states, thereby increasing the control
they have over those states when they change from one personality
state to another
How to Treat
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
type of treatment that integrates traumatic memories
with the patient's own resources, is being increasingly
used in the treatment of people with dissociative
identity disorder

conditions that individuals with DID tend to have, like
depression, severe anxiety, anger, and impulse-control
