This paper represents an attempt to facilitate the clinician or psychiatrist in making a diagnosis of Multiple Personality Disorder, the most severe of the dissociative disorders. Emphasis will be placed on detecting signs, symptoms, and information that occur within the constituent parts of a typical psychiatric interview, and that are highly suggestive of MPD even in the absence of alter presentation.
