Dear Debbie,
The Dissociative Experiences Scale and Dissociative Disorders Interview Schedule are available in - Steinberg M.,Rounsaville B., Cicchetti D : Detection of Dissociative Disorders in psychiatric patients by screening instrument and a structured diagnostic interview. Am J Psychiatry 48:1050, 1991.
They are also available in - Steinberg M : Handbook for the assessment of Dissociation: A clinical guide. American Psychiatric Press, Washington, 1995.
The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Dissociative Disorders is edited by M. Steinberg (Published by American Psychiatric Press, Washington, 1993)
I hope you find tjis information helpful. It is provided for general medical educational purposes only, and should not replace consultation with your physician for diagnostic and treatment options pertaining to your problems.
