Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), is a mental disorder characterized by the maintenance of at least two distinct and relatively enduring personality states. The illness is accompanied by memory gaps beyond what would be explained by ordinary forgetfulness. Multiple personality disorder is understood today as chronic dissociative psychopathology that most often develops in response to severe abuse in childhood. The dissociative component is a manifestation of a defense mechanism out of control: The person with a biopsychological capacity to dissociate flees inward from overwhelming abuse or feared abuse. Many have received several prior, erroneous diagnoses of mental or physical disorders or both over a period of 7 or more years.
