Dissociative experiences and their correlates in young non‐patients (pages 53-64)

The relationship between dissociation and some of its potential correlates and antecedents was explored. Young medical students (N = 276) completed the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES), Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI), 20‐item Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS‐20) and Munich Personality Test (MPT). The findings indicate that both personality characteristics (such as alexithymia and neuroticism)and, to a modest degree, environmental factors in terms of the lack of parental care contribute to the dissociation variance.
