DSM-IV - Dissociative Trance Disorder

[From American Psychiatric Association. Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. 4th ed. Text rev. Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Association; copyright 2000.] ...

  1. Either (1) or (2):

    1. Trance, that is, temporary marked alteration in the state of consciousness or loss of customary sense of personal identity without replacement by an alternate identity, associated with at least one of the following:
      1. Narrowing of awareness of immediate surroundings or unusually narrow and selective focusing on environmental stimuli
      2. Stereotyped behaviors or movements that are experienced as being beyond one's control
    2. Possession trance, a single or episodic alteration in the state of consciousness characterized by the replacement of customary sense of personal identity by a new identity. This is attributed to the influence of a spirit, power, deity, or other person, as evidenced by one or more of the following:
      1. Stereotyped and culturally determined behaviors or movements that are experienced as being controlled by the possessing agent
      2. Full or partial amnesia for the event
  2. The trance or possession trance state is not accepted as a normal part of a collective cultural or religious practice.
  3. The trance or possession trance state causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
  4. The trance or possession trance state does not occur exclusively during the course of a psychotic disorder (including mood disorder with psychotic features and brief psychotic disorder) or dissociative identity disorder and is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance or a general medical condition.

Hello there; it is nice to be able to find the information per the DSM-IV since I don't own the actual book; and I am writing a paper on DTD. I am supposed to include a case example on one person, but I'm having difficulty with the limited information. I've read all of the scholarly journals available (online), and find pretty vague and contradicting information in some case studies on large groups of people. Thanks for the info! Great page!
