• DID and Gender Identity

    People who have Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID or OSDD) often have parts of varying genders.

    By their very nature, parts are internal and can see themselves in any way that fits for them. So, this may mean they do not share the same age, gender, name, body type, species as the body. And how they see themselves may change over time.

    In working with clients with DID it’s important to remember that just because they have parts of different genders, this does not mean that the person identifies as trans or non-binary.

    As always, be curious and ask the person themselves how they identify, don’t assume.
