Dissociative Identity Disorder is a complex pattern of dissociation that calls for a multi-faceted treatment approach. In this case presentation, Christina will discuss her work with a highly motivated woman with DID, highlighting key moments in each phase of her treatment, as well the importance of collaboration between patient and therapist. We will look at how the therapist’s ongoing work to integrate challenging parts of herself was critical in navigating difficult moments and repairing ruptures in the therapeutic relationship, allowing psychological progress to continue.
