Details for Treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder

Beverly Searle – Discusses nuances of healing Dissociative Identity Disorder , Anorexia, PTSD, and Depression. At the moment Beverly is finishing an evidence-based research project with a Ph.D. student investigating the use of her personalized recovery process on people who had experienced trauma at work. Preliminary results show there was up to an 80% improvement in 10 hours of therapy. She is an independent researcher in the trauma/adversity landscape and is focused on thousands who have had negative, traumatic life experiences. This is the second time for Beverly here at CBJ & focuses on her considerable experience with DID.

Personal Note From Beverly   dissociative identity disorder

“Everything about the recovery process that I teach in my practice was first accomplished addressing my own past conflicts – the embryonic theory I did in my own head! I adjusted each step, tuned and adjusted again until the step worked! I have family and friends who let me try this approach out on them who suffered from anxiety and PTSD issues. Weren’t they wonderful to do this?

Then I added another part or step and started all over again with the testing, and adjusting. My friends also gave me suggestions which I then tried out and if they worked (again in my own head) I would add this my recovery plan until it became a complete formula, an 8 step process, 4 which can be done as a Self Help process and 5-8 with a counselor/therapist.

Her Practice

My practice can find application in a variety of challenges including PTSD, Anorexia, and Dissociative Identity Disorder. My first client who was suffering from anorexia for over 15 years was able to alleviate within 3 months and has never looked back since then. Download the free report on my website, and you can read her testimonial.”

166 Farnsworth Lobenstine is a clinical social worker living in MA. He’s an Approved Consultant for the EMDR International Association. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy is one of 3 therapies approved internationally for the treatment of PTSD. Because it treats the body-mind, and not just the thinking brain , it has also proven to be very useful in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and many other psychological disorders.

EMDR has proven to be an effective treatment for complex trauma and the dissociative disorders when appropriately modified. He trained in EMDR in 1999 and has served on the National Faculty of the EMDR Institute since 2001. This interview is quite compelling and adds considerably to options for resolving past trauma. He’s experienced, intelligent and reasonably opinionated – an excellent mix! Don’t miss Farnsworth – love that name!

    Serious red flags when Beverly Searle talks of DID patients eye colour changing, hair changing & growing physically taller. This are just pure fantasies. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof!

    As a DID patient myself I couldn’t relate to almost anything Beverly had to say. I think it would be only fair to have a more clinically minded and qualified guest to talk on DID. Beverly has only muddied the waters. Very concerning.

      Thanks, Drecion, if you have someone you would like to suggest, I would most appreciate expanding on these points you raise. The reason to engage discussions with clinicians like Beverly Searle is to diversify the conversation with her specific experience. I don’t recall her making those points as generalizations but as her observations with some out there on the front. Our team will chase down any connection you suggest thru a note here:
      Again thanks for your interest and worthwhile observations.
