ItemThe effects of hypnosis on dissociative identity disorder: a reexamination of the evidence(1999) Powell, Russell A.; Gee, TravisExamines previously published data (C. A. Ross and G. R. Norton, see record 1990-10586-001 ) that have been interpreted as indicating that hypnosis does not exert significant iatrogenic effects on dissociative identity disorder (DID). Ross and Norton compared characteristics of 57 patients with DID who had been hypnotized before and after diagnosis with those of 38 patients who had never been hypnotized. The current authors found that hypnotized Ss showed greater variability than nonhypnotized Ss in number of alter personalities and in abuse history. Results of this reanalysis indicate that hypnosis may have significant iatrogenic effects in DID patients. ItemQuestioning premorbid dissociative symptomatology in dissociative identity disorder: comment on Gleaves, Hernandez and Warner(2003) Gee, Travis; Allen, Kelly; Powell, Russell A.Comments on an article by D. H. Gleaves et al (see record 1999-03012-003 ) which purported to refute the sociocognitive model (SCM) of dissociative identity disorder by showing that many of the symptoms associated with dissociative identity disorder are displayed by patients before entering therapy or prior to diagnosis. The present authors argue that Gleaves et al's results do not refute the SCM and are in fact supportive of that model. The present authors also argue that the Gleaves et al study suffers from several deficiencies, including a misunderstanding of the SCM and its predictions concerning iatrogenesis, deficiencies in the manner in which the survey was conducted, and a failure to note some disturbing trends in the results that were obtained.
