The Effectiveness Of Hypnotherapy For Sufferers Of Multiple Personalities?
hi ,. I want to ask about DID. I have a close friend of a boy. a few months ago he decided to split up and I said yes even though we might never get back together again. but the following month, he called me back and wanted to explain something. he told me that he has DID. the next day, he called me and told me that he wanted to be contacted if I really did not want to contact him (alias did not want to know him again). he permission to me until finally he told me why he often repeatedly made mistakes that was all because our phase was broken up like that.
Hello Winda, thank you for asking.
DID or often referred to as multiple personalities is a psychiatric disorder in the form of the emergence of several personalities that have different characters in the same individual. Someone with DID will experience attitudes, traits, thoughts, memories, which are not related to one another. Each personality stands alone and has its own character. Each personality has a different gender, age, physical form, way of thinking, emotions, behavior, and even illness. Each personality can not know each other or can also know each other. People with DID will feel that there are several different people in themselves. Usually at a certain time, a dominant personality appears.
There are several types of dissociative disorders, namely:
Dissociative amnesia. Someone feels forgotten or has no memory of a part of his life. Important information such as address, date of birth, family name, is often lost from memory. Amnesia period can take place in minutes, hours, or even years.
DID. Feeling not knowing people around, not knowing the surrounding environment, not feeling that he had lived or doing something, felt that there were some people living in him.
Depersonalization-derealization. Feeling out or separated from his body and observing his life from the outside, like when someone is watching a movie. Often feeling like someone or the environment around them is a dream.
The cause could be sexual trauma, trauma loss, emotional trauma, or physical trauma. And DID is often a form of defense and escape. Someone may repeat the same behavior if the person is not aware of why or when he did it. In psychiatric disorders, there is the term tilik. A person with good insight means that he realizes that he may have a disturbance and so he seeks help. People with bad views mean that they are not aware that they are experiencing interference. Diagnosis and therapy are often not easy but can be successful if done diligently. The psychiatrist or psychologist will conduct counseling sessions repeatedly to determine the diagnosis and follow-up and be appropriate. You don't have to treat your friends differently. Treat it as usual, provide assistance as far as you can. Do not abuse (bully) because it can result in further complications such as depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, drug abuse, self-harm, to suicide. Hopefully this explanation can help you. Regards.
