Netzer Daie - The Hints that Help Clinicians to Identify Dissociative Patients

The Hints that Help Clinicians Identify Dissociative Patients

Netzer Daie

Due to heterogenic and confusing symptomatology with dissociative patients, it is very difficult to diagnose them and to choose the right treatment. These patients are often accorded diverse diagnoses and treatments without getting better. They wander between different clinicians and disciplines like psychiatrists, neurologists, pain specialists etc.

In all the years that I worked with patients suffering from dissociation I started to collect 'hints' that the clinician can derive from his or her dialog with the patient in order to establish clinically the existence of dissociation. Analyzing these 'hints' helped me immensely as a clinician to treat these patients who suffer so much. Today I teach these methods all around Israel, and I will share them with you today.

Netzer Daie. Institute HILA – Jerusalem Institute for the Study and Research of Hypnosis, based in Mevasseret Zion. Clinical psychologist, specializing in psycho-diagnostics, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.

I was first exposed to dissociation as an army psychologist specializing in PTSD. I later started working with victims of child abuse, especially sexual abuse, and was exposed to what is today called Complex PTSD and to the existence of dissociative parts within the personality. Working with DID patients, I realized that dynamic psychology does not offer me enough tools to help these patients. I therefore studied the field of ego state therapy with Prof. Watkins and his wife, and also had the good fortune to learn from Prof. van der Hart when he was in Israel. I also participated in few workshops with Maggie Phylipps and Claire Frederics. At the same time, I started fruitful cooperation with Prof. Witztum in this field, and to-day this cooperation is becoming a book about dissociation and methods of treating it.
