An Update on Forthcoming Treatment Guidelines

Dear ISSTD community,

A major task for our Society this year is the updating and revision of our treatment guidelines for dissociative identity disorder. The previous edition was published in 2011, and the dissociative disorders field has progressed in leaps and bounds over the last decade. The guidelines revisions are no small feat, and we have literally dozens of authors and reviewers who are volunteering their time on this important project. 

We are currently anticipating submission of the guidelines for peer review in 2024 with publication in 2025. In addition to the substantially expanded adult treatment guidelines, we have a team of authors preparing new guidelines for the treatment of children and adolescents, and for emerging adults. I want to thank all our hardworking editors and contributors.

 Kind regards,
