3 Hour Workshop

Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation: Presenting the Updated Mid Analysis and Expanded Interpretive Manual

Saturday, March 24
1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Salon 1

The Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation (MID) has become a valuable assessment tool for clinicians to determine presence of pathological dissociation, and readiness for trauma reprocessing. The MID is a 218-item, self-administered instrument with 168 dissociation items and 50 validity items developed by Paul F. Dell, PhD (2006, 2011). The MID reliably differentiates and offers a diagnostic impression for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Otherwise Specified Dissociative Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Somatization Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder.
MID Analysis v4.0 has been updated to reflect DSM-5 verbiage and diagnostic categories, include PTSD norms on all graphs, correct isolated errors, and improve overall ease of use.
An Interpretive Manual for the Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation, 2nd Edition, instructs on scoring and interpretation, and use of the MID within a three-phase approach to treatment of complex trauma and dissociative disorders, as indicated in Guidelines for treating dissociative identity disorder in adults (ISSTD, 2011). Illustrations aid clinicians in more fully understanding the MID Report, and gleaning rich clinical information during the follow-up interview.
Participants will learn to administer and score the MID, and navigate the MID Analysis to input client responses, view and interpret results. Indications to assess for pathological dissociation, and practical steps of how and when to do so will be described. Processes of conducting a follow-up interview will be reviewed. Case examples will be discussed to teach administration, scoring, and interpretation, and how the MID has been used to clarify diagnosis and treatment planning with clients and consultees.
MID documents are available without charge to mental health professionals and researchers at www.mid-assessment.com. This workshop is provided with full knowledge and permission of Paul Dell.

Jennifer has worked with child and adult survivors of trauma on their journey of healing since 2003, in shelter, residential, community mental health, hotline, school, and private practice settings.

Increasingly aware of the need and appreciation for the MID by clinicians utilizing EMDR therapy, Jennifer sought and obtained permission from Paul F. Dell, PhD, to present on the MID during the EMDRIA Annual Conference in 2015. Soon after, Jennifer began collaboration with co-presenter D. Michael Coy, LICSW, and MID developer Paul F. Dell, PhD, to make the MID more accessible to and useable for all clinicians. Current MID documents are available at www.mid-assessment.com.
