MPD: Richard Noll and Allen Frances
FMSF News Alert - January 30, 2014
Below are links to two articles that are well worth reading.
The short Huffington Post blog by Allen Frances discusses an article by Richard Noll about MPD. The article appeared in Psychiatric Times and was posted briefly on the paper’s website. It was quickly "unposted," too hot a topic for the paper.
Frances also talks about his role in the inclusion of MPD in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. (Frances chaired the committee that examined MPD for the DSM IV)
The second article is the one by Richard Noll that was removed from the paper’s website. It is important because it names the psychiatrists who were responsible for the spread of the satanic panic that followed on the heels of the MPD diagnosis. It is an excellent short history of the subject.
