International Journal of Play Therapy

Klein, Jeffrey Wm.; Landreth, Garry L.

The use of play therapy with child alters of adults who have multiple personality disorders is explored.
Various approaches to play therapy that are used with children may also be effectively used with child alters.
Play may be used to help sublimate expressions of anger, recover dissociated memories, and increase communication and cooperation among alter personalities.
Play therapy offers distinct advantages when working with child alters, and the play room allows for special techniques that can be used with all alters in the personality system.

      J, I redacted your comment because I didn’t know if you were kidding or not.

      I no longer allow unmanaged comments on my blog & don’t allow others to use it for hate speech.

    Sheri, I think the video is a few years old. What really ticks me off is this guy is the head of the DSM working group IV and V. This is the whole diagnosis is a sham based on the “research” of people like this who did induced alters through hypnosis. Besides this guy, Bruan, Kluft and Ross who are the “experts” in MPD/DID and account for a good deal of the published “research.” more alters have probably been induced through hypnosis than the population of a small city. It’s mind-boggling that this is even remotely considered research.
