You know, my T hasn't said anything about it being underdiagnosed. In fact, he hasn't called it anything at all, so I'm glad to know your term for it -- "ego disorder." I'll ask him. I believe he thinks everyone has this to one degree or another; it's just that for us, some of our ego states have been traumatized.

As for EMDR, the visualization inherent in the process seems to be a way to build "ego bridges" that link the various parts of ourselves with the ultimate goal of integration. I find it very helpful. For instance, I have visualized a literal bridge in which the child part of me lead the adult by the hand across the bridge to the experiences and memories that I have suppressed.

Does that make any sense?
