Multiple Personality Disorder

Multiple Personality Disorder is the existence of more than one personality with unique behavior patterns. This subpersonality or alter can take control of the body at different times and make the client unconscious or amnesiac to what is happening during those times.

For the sake of clarity, I will use the pronoun “he” to refer to the therapist and “she” to refer to the client. There are many men with MPD, but they often end up in prison. Dissociation and amnesia is one explanation of why so many male sex offenders deny doing the abuse, because another subpersonality actually did the abuse and there is no conscious memory of it. More women have been abused, thus more women have MPD.
