Show synopsis The syndrome known as multiple personality has been widely studied in North America, but the prevalence of this syndrome in Puerto Rico was never reported. This book provides an excellent overview of the current literature on the phenomenology, physiology, theory, and treatment of multiple personality (now called dissociative identity disorder) as well as detailed presentations of three Puerto Rican cases. The book includes prefaces by Dr. Richard P. Kluft, founder of the International Society for the Study of Dissociation and Trauma, and by Dr. Carol Romey, who at the time of publication was the President of the Puerto Rican Association of Psychologists. Also included in the book is an extensive bibliography and detailed index. A chapter by Dr. Carlos S. Alvarado on the history of the disorder is also included.
