Working with Dissociative Identity Disorder

Cristina Mardirossian, LMFT

DID is very often misdiagnosed, misunderstood, and not taken seriously. Many of these clients have been diagnosed as bipolar, borderline, schizophrenia, etc., when in reality they have a dissociative disorder. This presentation will help you understand the complexities of working with clients with DID, how to assess for it, and how to treat it.

Based on The International Society for the Study of Dissociation (ISSTD) Guidelines for Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder, this workshop will address current theories of Complex-PTSD and dissociation, including case conceptualization, treatment planning, and phase-orientated therapy. This workshop is geared toward mental health professionals who are interested in developing their skills in treating clients with chronic trauma-related dissociative disorders

One of Los Angeles' leading experts in Dissociative Identity Disorder, Cristina Mardirossian is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified EMDR therapist in Pasadena, CA. Cristina works in her private practice predominately with adult trauma survivors, particularly with sexual abuse survivors and dissociative disorders. She is trained in TF-CBT, Brainspotting, Certified in Havening, EMDR, and in the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM).
