The causes of dissociative disorders are not well understood but often seem related to the tendency to escape psychologically from memories of traumatic events.
Treatment of dissociative disorders involves helping the patient re-experience the traumatic events in a controlled therapeutic manner to develop better coping skills. In the case of DID, therapy is often long term and may include antidepressant drugs. Particularly essential with this disorder is a sense of trust between therapist and patient.
