Abstract

Objective: The dissociative experiences of patients with bipolar disorder (BD) differ from those of patients with other psychiatric disorders with regard to certain features. The primary goal of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the clinical variables of BD and childhood trauma using the factor structure, psychometric features, and potential subdimensions of the Dissociative Experience Scale (DES).
