Conference: International Association for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation

Another conference on discovering and treating multiple personalities. Don’t be fooled by the name change. This is the same organization that was founded to investigate the phenomenon of multiple personalities in the mid-1980s that, according to lawsuits, led to patient harm, familial alienation, and wrongful convictions based on recovered memories of abuse. This group of practitioners and interested parties is probably the only organization of “experts” in psychiatry and psychology that has seen the highest number of medical malpractice lawsuits, medical license revocation, and questionable associations with online degree programs.

I will have reports from the conference when they are available.
