TU professor explains origins of “Orphan Black,” “The U.S. of Tara”

CLA thumbWhat’s your personality type? What if you had more than one?

Towson University professor Bethany Brand, who specializes in trauma and dissociative disorders, was quoted in the U.S. News & World Report Health article “What is Dissociative Identity Disorder?” that explores facts about dissociative identity disorder (DID).

Professor Brand comments on the diagnosis and treatment of DID and common misconceptions about the disease. She notes physicians and clinicians need to treat the original trauma that caused the DID to manifest to understand what drives and triggers the current symptoms. Brand also talks about common symptoms of DID patients, which include self-harm and thoughts or attempts at suicide.
