It was my understanding that Dr. Kluft is a rather controversial figure. He was involved in some of the huge ritual abuse court cases that later turned out to be fabricated due to the manipulative way in which the children were interviewed (his name is on the 'blacklist' of the False Memory Foundation) - I'm not saying this discredits his views on DID but it's a pity the interview couldn't have been with someone without this hanging over them.

I was also disappointed that mention was made of the case of Sybil, as its validity did not stand up to scrutiny.

My feeling is that DID needs a refreshing and new perspective, detached from the previous stereotypes which have attracted much criticism and skepticism. Making associations from the start with cases that were later suggested to be in part fabricated does not help with the popular acceptance and understanding of the disorder. Perhaps what is really needed is a portrayal that would bridge the gap between the spectrum of views and understandings of this dissociative disorder.

Just my thoughts. It makes me sad - personally I think the media has done DID a great disservice over the years.
