The purpose of this project is to inform its readers of the often overlooked and sometimes avoided diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder along with its possible connections to extreme abuse such as satanic ritual abuse as well as intentional mind control. This project gives a complete description of the present definitions of dissociation including dissociative identity disorder as defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual Fourth Edition Text Revised (American Psychiatric Association, 2000). By including the history of dissociative identity disorder, addressing the controversies that surround this disorder, as well as reviewing relevant research the mystery of this diagnosis begins to gain clarity. In light of this clarity this project proposes a more holistic, effective approach to treatment including that of a spiritual nature.
