There is some current controversy over whether it is necessary to work directly with all dissociative parts or only to work with parts through the “adult self” in clients with DID. This workshop will describe problems that have led some clinicians to emphasize working solely through the adult self, such as dependency of child parts, chaotic switching, and unwillingness of the adult self of the client to engage in treatment.

In the most recent version of the DSM-5, providers repeatedly exposed to details of abuse are included in the diagnostic criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Beyond vicarious and secondary trauma, this highlights the real risk providers face of developing PTSD like symptoms themselves when mired in the duty of supporting those recovering from traumatic experiences.

It is well-established in both the EMDR therapy and complex trauma-dissociative disorders literatures that self-state/parts-focused work with clients is frequently not only helpful but also necessary to achieve stabilization/containment, trauma resolution, and integration of treatment gains into how a person functions in day-to-day life.

For decades, the diagnosis of borderline personality has been used to disparage abuse survivors as “difficult to treat,” often minimizing their experience of trauma, as noted in Herman’s classic Trauma and Recovery. In contrast, from 1989 to the present, studies have repeatedly shown the high co-occurrence of BPD and severe dissociative symptoms.
