Mpd and dating
Now the teachers expected the treaters to treat the patients' "identity disorder," as no one could really have multiple personalities.
When the decision was reported out of committee, the teachers had won, and MPD suddenly ceased to exist.
Remember, these were written in the USA by American psychiatrists.
However the same terms were accepted by the editors of the International Code of Diseases (ICD) through its present 9th edition. MPD was then a minor label under "Hysterical Dissociative Disorder." It did not even have its own code number.
The teachers decided that the patients had the major mental problem of believing that they had more than one personality.
