This timely handbook provides state-of-the-art coverage of both current and emerging theories, research, and treatment of dissociative phenomena. The book opens with a discussion of the historic, epidemiologic, phenomenologic, etiologic, normative, and cross-cultural dimensions of dissociation, providing an empirical foundation for the remaining chapters. Subsequent chapters examine the developmental aspects of dissociative disorders in addition to psychological and psychophysiological assessments. Eight case studies apply dissociation theory and research to specific treatment modalities.
