Educating Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Therapists & Medical Professionals
This article is a Stub.
Wanted to add a link to this document to the site, pending later discussion of problems with psychiatrists & believing in, and treating, DID.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3615506/pdf/icns_10_2_22.pdf Article discusses DID intended for DID-resistant psychiatrists, mainly. Includes section on prescribing medications, and which medications seem contraindicated etc. and we feel this is important to help educate prescribers when dealing with clients with DID even when they may not themselves believe in DID.
Another decent article, more up-to-date, is Lowenstein 2018. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6296396/pdf/DialoguesClinNeurosci-20-229.pdf This article lacks a section on prescribing medications for DID which the former covers. However it digs into the more recent evidence up to publication, including genetic markers that may be associated with strong dissociative abilities, and more evidence and proof in one document than we've seen in some time.
