Pathological Dissociation as Measured by the Child Dissociative Checklist
Wherry, Jeffrey N.; Neil, Debra A.; Taylor, Tamara N.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v18 n1 p93-102 2009
The component structure of the Child Dissociative Checklist was examined among abused children. A factor described as pathological dissociation emerged that was predicted by participants being male. There also were differences in pathological dissociation between groups of sexually abused and physically abused children. Replication of this factor and the establishment of base rates for various groups of children are recommended so that the Child Dissociative Checklist might be used to more effectively eliminate false positives and increase true positives in the screening and ultimate treatment of dissociative children. (Contains 2 tables.)
