Abstract

The treatment issues encountered in the unified multiple personality disorder (MPD) patient have received little attention in the literature to date. This study reviews the therapy records of 91 such patients and identifies seven recurrent areas of concern: (1) coping with the psychophysiologic changes associated with unification, (2) coping with the psychologic changes associated with unification, (3) working through, (4) abandoning autohypnotic evasions, (5) modifying adaptive and coping mechanisms, (6) interpersonal adjustments, (7) and major life changes. Some therapeutic approaches are indicated.
