Dr. Brand will describe ways to manage common assessment challenges such as mistrust, amnesia and conflicting and variable experiences of symptoms. She will review the behaviors exhibited by DD patients during psychological assessment, describe a method for obtaining valid assessment data from them, and review some of the trauma-specific tests (DES, TSI, MID, MDI) and interviews (SCID-D-R, DDIS) that are useful in making a differential diagnosis of DD for adults.

This workshop will provide an overview of the research on DD patients’ profiles on personality inventories (MMPI/MMPI-2, MCMI-II/MCMI-III) and projectives (Rorschach, Rotter Incomplete sentences, TAT). Dr. Brand will focus on how these tests can be useful in making differential diagnoses. She will review ways to clarify if the high levels of symptomatology seen in clients with DD are due to exaggerating and/or feigning symptomatology, including using an interview that assesses feigning of psychiatric disorders (SIRS).

Mentalizing is the process by which we make sense of the contents of our own minds and that of others. Requiring an optimal level of arousal as well as a nurturing and safe attachment relationship to develop, mentalizing is conspicuously impaired and even frightening for patients who have suffered attachment trauma. Mentalizing requires the capacity to be present, to accurately read relational cues, and to be mindful and tolerant of one’s own inner experiences.

​​​​​​​Psychotherapy outcome research shows that the relationship between therapist and client is highly predictive of therapy outcome. This is especially so for chronically traumatized persons, who have been relationally violated so often. In the therapy of complex trauma patients, there are six choice points that present typical relational challenges.

​​​​​​​One of the greatest challenges in working with complex dissociative disorders is to provide a step-wise, rational, and relatively steady treatment approach. Chaos, crises, avoidance strategies, resistances, intense transference and countertransference, conflicts among dissociative parts, and a disorganized attachment style are only a few issues that contribute to difficulties in maintaining a stable therapy. We will explore specific ways to conceptualize a case that offers the therapist a meta-view of how the client is organized, opening a path toward a rational treatment plan. We will explore how to assess specific prognostic factors and set collaborative therapeutic goals. We will discuss general guidelines about how treatment might differ when there is more than one part that functions in daily life; which parts to work with first; when it is better to work with all, some or only one part at a time; steps toward integration even before traumatic memories can be addressed; and effective ways to work with particular types of parts.
