How to use the Dissociative Disorders Interview Schedule

About the Course:

The Dissociative Disorders Interview Schedule DSM-5 Version (DDIS) is a structured interview that diagnoses the DSM-5 dissociative disorders plus somatic symptom disorder, major depressive disorder, and borderline personality disorder. As well, it inquires about childhood physical and sexual abuse, substance abuse, psychotic symptoms, ESP/paranormal experiences and past psychiatric history. The DDIS has been shown to be valid and reliable and is included in the American Psychiatric Association’s Handbook of Psychiatric Measures. The DDIS is usually administered along with the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES). Attendees will be shown examples of data from DDIS research studies and then will be taught how to administer the DDIS; they will be provided with copies of the DES, the DDIS and its scoring rules. This includes a consent form for the DDIS. The DES and DDIS are public domain documents and can be used without permission. The DDIS takes 30-40 minutes to administer and can be used in any setting. After thousands of administrations to clinical and non-clinical samples, the author has encountered no severe adverse reactions to using the DDIS.
