Screening Test for Dissociative Identity DisorderDissociative Experiences Scale
Instructions for Completing this Screening Test:
This questionnaire consists of twenty-eight questions about experiences you may have in your daily life. We are interested in how often you have these experiences (only when you are not under the influence of alcohol or drugs).
When answering, please determine the degree in which the experience described in the question applies to you as a percentage of the time you have the experience. 'Never' corresponds to 0% of the time and 'Always', corresponds to 100% of the time. The range covers 0% to 100% in 10% increments.
Please note: You MUST answer every question for the test to score correctly.
The Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) was developed by Eve Bernstein Carlson, Ph.D. and Frank W. Putnam, M.D.
