ABSTRACT

Dissociation is typically defined as the disruptions in the integrated functions of consciousness, memory, identity and perception. In this study, our aim was to investigate the relationship between dissociative experiences and memory performance in a outpatient Hospital setting. This study compared 30 dissociative disorder patients and normal control based on Dissociative Experience scale (DES-II) and PGI Memory scale. Results indicate that there is a significant relationship between patient and control group with respect to Mental Balance, Attention & Concentration, Delayed recall, Retention for dissimilar Pairs, Visual Retention, and Recognition. These findings suggest that there is a definite relationship between dissociative experiences and memory performance.
