For many years, the practice of psychotherapy for dissociative disorders was largely focused on working with adult survivors. Over the last 10 to 15 years, there has been increased recognition and focus on working with younger trauma survivors in developmentally appropriate ways to more effectively reduce or eliminate the need for dissociative processes as an ongoing coping mechanism. A clear advantage of this approach is that the earlier developmentally these coping mechanisms are addressed, the less firmly entrenched they are.

One of the more challenging problems of working with complex developmental trauma is how to effectively manage the therapeutic relationship.

Psychotropic medications are widely used in the treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), yet the literature to guide their use is almost nonexistent. The prescriber faces the challenge of distinguishing whether particular symptoms, such as dramatic mood shifts or auditory hallucinations, represent switches within the alter system, as opposed to co-occurring biological disorders such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
