The Dissociative Subtype of PTSD: An Update of the Literature

by Francesca L. Schiavone, Paul Frewen, PhD, Margaret McKinnon, PhD, and Ruth A. Lanius, MD, PhD

The presence of dissociative symptoms among traumatized individuals has been well known since Charcot’s case presentations at the Salpetriere Hospital in Paris in the late 19th Century. Recognition that dissociative symptoms also occur among a significant minority of PTSD patients led to approval of the Dissociative Subtype of PTSD in the DSM-5. This issue of the Research Quarterly provides an authoritative guide to the emerging literature on this new diagnosis.
