Knowing me, knowing you: Identity alteration in Dissociative Identity Disorder  (PhD project)

Supervisors: prof. dr. R.J.C. Huntjens & prof. dr. P.J. de Jong

  • Individuals with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) experience the severely impairing symptom of identity alteration: the manifestation of multiple identity states, each reporting different thoughts, feelings and behaviours. My project aims to understand the nature of identity alteration in DID in order to improve current conceptualizations of the disorder and to innovate treatment. Specifically, my research involves testing critical predictions following two opposing theories on identity alteration in people with DID and (clinical) comparison groups using performance-based measures.
