Overview of Treatment | Psychotherapy of Dissociative Amnesia and Dissociative Fugue | Phases of Treatment | Direct Treatment of Amnesia | Psychotherapeutic Issues Concerning Memory | Treatment Modalities | Somatic Therapies
Dissociative amnesia, dissociative fugue, and dissociative identity
disorder are approached with a three-phase model of trauma treatment.
A phase of achieving safety is followed by a phase of reviewing
and processing traumatic memories and grieving their impacts, implications,
and attendant losses, after which a phase of reconnection develops
the foundation for an integrated self and a life relatively freed
from domination by posttraumatic symptoms and concerns (Herman 1992).
