Abstract

A comprehensive assessment of dissociative symptoms is recommended for effective treatment of trauma survivors. The author reviews the systematic detection of dissociative symptoms and disorders using the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Dissociative Disorders--Revised (SCID-D-R) in adolescents and adults (Steinberg, 1994b). Numerous investigations have reported good-to-excellent reliability and validity of the SCID-D-R, both in the United States and abroad. Clinical applications, including the SCID-D-R's utility for psychological and forensic evaluations, treatment planning, differential diagnosis, and evaluation of malingering, are reviewed.
