Professional Topic Consulting on Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID, OSDD, DDNOS, MPD, Plurality in general) for journalists, psychologists, researchers, therapists, writers, directors, screenwriters, news anchors, etc.
What type of consulting services do you offer?
We are available for consulting and group workshops, courses, or classes for professionals who need to speak to a plural or peer (someone with the mental health "disorder" in question). We are diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (since 1986), very knowledgable about the subject matter of dissociative identity disorder and related issues for many applications, for example those listed below (but of course many others):

Authors, Directors, Journalists
What is or is not a part of the subjective experiences of DID? What is it like "from the inside" and what does it "look like on the outside" — we provide consultations for people researching the "experience of being…" for example for writers, playwrights, screenplays, actors, directors, journalists, and more including:
- What is it like to switch?
- How does it feel to have conversations or fights inside one's head?
- What are valid ways of describing experiences of dissociation from the inside?
- Critique written pieces for accuracy and tips on how to improve them (we have experience with developmental editing and assisting writers, see our http://eclectictech.net website)
News Reporters, Media
How do you cover DID et. al. with respect and dignity? We provide media topic expertise, editing, and consultation on the "etiquette of reporting on…" for bloggers, researchers, authors, reporters, news anchors, journalists, etc. including:
- Fact-checking and myth-busting for DID and related disorders
- Making sure you're not using harming, blaming language
- Screening for triggering language or features in your work
- Ensuring that you are giving fair and accurate coverage for interviewees or news stories
How can research studies be more productive and useful for the population they're studying? We provide a peer partner for research teams to help with development of hypothesis and research methods, screening for controls, and useful outcomes that will help those receiving the benefits of said research. Some examples:
- Screening the hypothesis or question being researched, how it is framed, whether there's a more useful similar question/hypothesis
- Brainstorming on methods, tools, information, and the conclusions that may be drawn
- Reviewing questionnaires, surveys, and subject matter intended for our peer population
- Critique of papers before they're published for language, examples, conclusions, &c. - our peers can and do read industry research about us
