DISCLAIMER FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF TRAUMA AND DISSOCIATION The diagnosis and treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder and other dissociative disorders continue to be in an evolutionary stage of development. There are many differing approaches. The techniques and suggestions as presented in papers, slides, audio tapes, video, or demonstrations at Society conferences are those of the authors and presenters and do not necessarily reflect or represent the opinions or suggestions of the Society. While these techniques may have been successful in the hands of workshop presenters, it must be understood that it does not follow that this will be so for every therapist or in every case. Participants are advised to ensure that they exercise their own independent professional judgment when treating patients, consistent with the prevailing standard of care in their locality and the current literature on dissociative disorders. The material presented here is for the purpose of information exchange only. Those who choose to use it do so at their own risk and professional responsibility. The material presented is of a preliminary nature. Speakers, titles, and topics are subject to change. For the latest information consult the ISSTD Web site at www.isst-d.org. Presentations on trauma and dissociation have the potential to be distressing to some conference attendees. Individuals are strongly encouraged to use prudent caution and judgment in deciding whether a given workshop is appropriate to attend, particularly in the case of those programs that offer an experiential component.
