people, children as well as adults."

- Child Abuse and Multiple
Personality - Abstract -- The syndrome of multiple personality is
associated with a high incidence of physical and/or sexual abuse in
childhood. Occasionally those with multiple personality abuse their own
children. Multiple personality is difficult to diagnose both because of the
nature of the syndrome and because of professional reluctance. Although
multiple personality is most difficult to diagnose during childhood because
of the subtlety of the syndrome. The much higher morbidity found in adult
cases makes it imperative that it be diagnosed and treated early in order to
avoid further abuse and greater morbidity and to shorten treatment time.
This review describes the history, clinical features and treatment of
multiple personality, particularly in children, in addition to exploring the
professional reluctance to make the diagnosis.

"This page is a rather eclectic mishmash of our lives and our interests, so
snoop around, you never know what you'll find! This is not your traditional
DID/ MPD page, because there are enough of those out there, and because
there is a lot more to us than that label. You'll find links to pages
created by various selves, pages devoted to interests that we have,
and of course a page by our daughter, who has shown us what families are all
about. There is some abuse-related stuff, because we are still
healing, but we are also transcending and looking beyond..."
