This series explores clinical assessment strategies for the major DSM 5 dissociative disorders: Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and Other Specified Dissociative Disorder and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD).
Learn how to differentiate symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex PTSD and Dissociative Disorders. We will learn how to ask clients about dissociative parts, current and past amnesia, with a major focus on distinguishing amnesia from the lack of memory that results from spacing out. In addition, we will explore several dissociative symptoms that are similar to psychotic symptoms and must be differentiated from psychosis. Several major clinical interview and self-report measures will be included.
