Homeopathic Remedies For Amnesia

Psychotherapy: – Successful psychotherapy for the patient with dissociative identity disorder requires the clinician to be comfortable with rage of psychotherapeutic interventions and be willing to actively work to structure the treatment. These modalities include psychoanalytic psychotherapy, cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy, hypnotherapy, and a familiarity with the psychotherapy and psychopharmacological management of the traumatized patient. Comfort with family treatment and systems theory is helpful in working with a patient who subjectively experiences himself or herself as a complex system of selves with alliances, family like relationships, and intergroup conflict. Grounding-in work with patients with somatoform disorders may also be helpful in sorting through the plethora of somatic symptoms with which these patients commonly present.

Cognitive Therapy: – Many cognitive distortions associated with dissociated identity disorder are only slowly responsive to cognitive therapy techniques, and successful cognitive interventions may lead to additional dysphoria. A subgroup of patients with dissociative identity disorder does not progress beyond a long term supportive treatment entirely directed towards stabilization of their multiple multiaxial difficulties. They require a long-term treatment focus on symptom containment and management of their overall life dysfunction, as would be the case with any other severely and persistently ill psychiatric patient.

Psychopharmacological Interventions:-Antidepressant medications are often important in the reduction of depression and stabilization of mood. A variety of PTSD symptoms, especially intrusive and hyper arousal symptoms, are partially medications responsive. Clinicians report some success with SSRI, tricyclic, and monoamine oxidase (MAO) antidepressants, beta-blockers, clonidine (Catapres), anticonvulsants, and benzodiazepines in reducing intrusive symptoms, hyper arousal, and anxiety in patients with dissociative identity disorder.
