So it's not hard to conclude that Dissociative Disorders are rather rare but dissociative experiences are very common (Kihlstrom, Glisky, & Angiulo, 1994).

The next step is to explore the most common personality traits that are related to dissociation.

The next topic that is discussed is how Multiple Personality Disorder and Dissociative Identity Disorder relate and differ.

A clinician named Janet, in 1889, who worked with hysterics at the Salpertriere, felt that dissociation is a response to stress but some people are predisposed to the disorders (Kihlstrom, Glisky, & Angiulo, 1994).

Janet also coined the term dissociation which was used to describe the split in consciousness that resulted when patients were exposed to traumatic events (Pica, 1999).

Multiple Personality Disorder, or MPD, is one of the most talked about and publicized disorders known and is the center of much debate and criticism.

What is currently known about MPD has become common place over the past 20 years.

The past two decades have shown an increase in the number of cases of MPD but there are many professionals that are skeptical about whether it even exists.

It was found that the longer a clinician has been out of school, the more skeptical of MPD they become.

There are many reasons for this and many criticisms of those reasons as well.

Still the theories of this disorder have survived through much criticism and tweaking. Then the subject of Dissociative Disorders and Dissociative Identity Disorder, or DID, are each discussed.

Janet also theorized about when vulnerability was at its highest.

The developmental window of vulnerability is 18 months to 8 years old (Pica, 1999).

The severe trauma is thought to be a result of physical or sexual abuse in childhood.
