Trauma & Dissociation in the new ICD-11: implications for therapy, prevention and justice
My presentation naturally focuses on the progresses of the work group on «Disorders specifically associated with stress» that basically comprise the trauma sequelae disorders since I have been member of this international group since 2011.
WHO organized and still organizes a series of internationally collaborative multicenter studies on this and other diagnostic groupings. Results of these studies will be presented. The work group on dissociative disorders – chaired by Ellert Nijenhuis, PhD – in parallel developed their proposals for ICD-11 diagnostic definitions, which will be presented as well. My presentation will touch arguments pro and con a closer move together of these two areas of psychopathology for the future.
