Multiple Personality Disorder
Instead, skeptics contend that individuals with MPD are unknowingly playing the parts of a cast of characters in a nightmarish drama produced and directed by those entrusted with helping them. The claim that MPD is an iatrogenic or therapist induced disorder is well supported in its evidence. MPD is most commonly diagnosed in people who are, typically in recovered memory therapy, found to be the victims of severe repeated trauma very early in life. Whether this abuse actually happened in the majority of cases or whether false memories were induced by the therapist is a subject of much debate. (Bliss, 1988; Spanos, 1986)
Mental health professionals are divided in their positions regarding the prevalence and validity of MPD. Both sides of the debate have provided scientific evidence to support their arguments. Studies today seem to be in support of the theory which proves MPD to be an iatrogenic disorder and in view of the overwhelming evidence these studies present, experts are becoming more reluctant to diagnose MPD.
