Happy to help. Furthermore, Schizophrenia and DID are thought of as unrelated diorders, a genetically based psychotic disorder versus a trauma-based dissociative disorder--and were categorized as such by the DSM-IV.

Dissociative Identity Disorder is generally attributed to instances of extreme trauma. It is marked by transitions between two or more distinct personalities. This has been corroborated in some cases with brain scans. Schizophrenia is a brain disease marked by deterioration of grey matter, decreased neurotransmitter functioning and improper levels of specific neurochemicals. Extensive brain scans show this deterioration.

That seems to be the most likely. No DSM since the beginning have listed schizophrenia or its diagnostic precursors in the same spectrums as DID/MPD or its diagnostic precursors. MPD was listed in the spectrum of neurosis until DSM-III in 1980.

People with DID almost universally hear the voices of their personas. I would argue that DID is a more severe form of schizophrenia, much like various levels and forms of autism.
User avatar #28 - krytigergal (03/04/2015) [-]
I think I would have to disagree with you.
While I don't think the exact cause of either disorder has ever been discovered, they are quite different. DID seems to be caused a dysfunctional survival mechanism that allows an individual to cope with some sort of trauma. Schizophrenia seems to have more of a biological basis in it's cause. Hearing voices is definitely a common feature between the two though.
It'd be really great if we were able to figure out the causes, then we could effectively help people.

unfortunately nothing concrete. this was just a relay of information given to me in my ap psych class. hell i may be wrong. in fact i would be more inclined to believe a person who has studied for four years. this is just what i was taught.

Fair enough. I just got excited that maybe some new research had come out that had discovered something new. I think maybe they were put in the same categories in the DSM-IV as there are some similarities between the two.

schizophrenia doesn't equal DID but the converse is almost always true. schizophrenia is considered something more of an umbrella term in modern psychology. including many disorders that cause hallucinations or delusions. so a schizophrenic isn't always DID, but someone with DID is almost always schizophrenic.
User avatar #29 - legocompiler (03/04/2015) [-]
The converse is actually almost never true. The likelihood of someone having both schizophrenia and MPD/DID is very slim. That said, there is an elevated occurrence of psychosis in patients with DID causing an elevated risk of misdiagnosis of schizophrenia. There are clear criteria outlined in the DSM-V for distinguishing the two.

Do you have any sources to back this up? (Not a challenge, looking for information) In four years of studying psychology I have never heard anyone refer to these disorders this way. I could definitely understand a co-morbid diagnosis happening, or perhaps in severe cases not being able to accurately separate the two as different disorders, but I've never heard any psychologist describe DID as part of schizophrenia.
