Those that are against the diagnosis of DID state that because many psychological disorders are diagnosed through the self-survey of symptoms. In the case of DID, self report of childhood trauma as well as the reliance on memory. Researchers believe that memory can be suggested to people, for example, if a patient were to mention something about a creepy old man when he or she was younger, the practitioner may sometimes inadvertently hint to whether the old man has done something that they felt uncomfortable with.

Moreover, the families of fatally injured victims often suffer many of the same psychological tolls.
The purpose of this paper is to provide a communication plan for an emergency situation, in particular the sudden death of a family member, define how communication changes in times of crisis, provide techniques to reduce stress during those times and finally provide solutions to potential communication challenges. Communication in a crisis Crises are traumatic events that happen on a public and private level and affect individuals differently. Often when individuals experience a crisis they react with raw emotion rather than meaningful actions. "People experience crisis as over-whelming, traumatic, and personally intrusive.

Untreated symptoms can snowball and lead to the development of sometimes severe secondary problems such as social, academic and occupational difficulties, addictions, poor self-esteem, suicide attempts, self-harm (cutting or burning oneself) and the like.

Problems listed can cause problems along the line monetary wise, in regards to different treatment methods ranging from treatment to tutoring.

TraumaClinic’s Model for Trauma Support: How family, friends and employers can support victims after a traumatic event When people experienced a traumatic event it is often unexpected, sudden and overwhelming. It is common for trauma victims to have very strong emotional responses during the aftermath of a traumatic incident. Consequentially family members, friends or employers may feel overwhelmed or even at a loss on how to react to these responses. TraumaClinic’s Model for Trauma Support is a model that assists professionals and empowers the lay person to offer support that can sufficiently help a victim along the path to recovery. The Model systematically addresses the stages of recovery after a traumatic event, it explains what normal responses to an abnormal event are and it emphasises the factors that can optimise a victim’s recovery.
Everyone bears wounds or scars from past hurts which are not always physical, but are emotional, verbal and spiritual (Wilson 2001, 9). These scars may have been inflicted intentionally or unintentionally, but nevertheless they exist, affect the way one things and feels, and have an impact on one’s future relationships. These hurt people will, in turn, hurt others thus causing a perpetual and continuous series of hurts. The goal of counseling, then, is to break this sequence of hurts which will then create healthy, loving individuals, thus destroying the generational series of dysfunctional and hurtful behavior. Working primarily within family systems and mental or thinking behavior, Wilson poses the question: Do we know why we do what we do?
