  Trauma, Dissociation and Dissociative Identity Disorder:  
Complexes, Archetypes and Alters
Timothy D. Brewerton, MD

Dr. Brewerton present a case of dissociative identity disorder (DID) from his private practice over 20 years ago that changed the course of his career. He reviewed the history and phenomenology of dissociation and DID, including Jung’s contributions to its understanding, as well as current concepts illuminated by neuroscience. His illustration of how “alters,” or split off parts of the psyche take on specific functions and separate identities, often archetypal in nature, was fascinating.

Dr. Brewerton, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at MUSC, is triple board certified in general, child-adolescent and forensic psychiatry, and is in private practice in the Charleston area. He is a well-known clinician, consultant, teacher and researcher, having published over 120 articles and book chapters, edited a textbook on eating disorders, and presented over 300 lectures, workshops and symposia in the U.S. and around the world.

This program was a highly stimulating opportunity for our community to explore a topic of broad scope within Jungian psychology. For more information about DID, visit the website of the  International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation.
