Dissociative Disorders in Children: Behavioral Profiles and Problems.
Putnam, Frank W.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n1 p39-45 Jan-Feb 1993
Clinical research has established a connection between childhood trauma and the development of dissociative disorders in adults. Pathological dissociation produces a range of symptoms and behaviors such as amnesias, rapid shifts in mood and behavior, and auditory and visual hallucinations. Many of these symptoms are misdiagnosed as attention, learning, or conduct problems, or even psychoses. (Author/JDD)
