ABSTRACT This article describes the development and validation of the Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation (MID). The MID is a 218-item, self-administered, multiscale instrument that comprehensively assesses the phenomenological domain of pathological dissociation and diagnoses the dissociative disorders. The MID measures 14 major facets of pathological dissociation; it has 23 dissociation diagnostic scales that simultaneously operationalize (1) the subjective/ phenomenological domain of… 
Measuring Dissociative Symptoms and Experiences in an Australian College Sample Using a Short Version of the Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation
TLDR
The present study’s findings suggest the MID-60 is a promising alternative to the DES, with results about the prevalence of DDs and dissociative experiences consistent with those found using clinical interviews and the DES.
The Detachment and Compartmentalization Inventory (DCI): An assessment tool for two potentially distinct forms of dissociation
TLDR
The DCI could detect compartmentalization and detachment, and was designed for clinical research and for screening patients, and exhibited good internal reliability, discriminant validity, convergent validity, construct validity and concurrent validity.
The Shutdown Dissociation Scale (Shut-D)
TLDR
Theshut dissociation scale (Shut-D) appears to have sufficient internal reliability, excellent retest reliability, high convergent validity, and satisfactory predictive validity, while the summed score of the scale reliably separates patients with exposure to trauma (in different diagnostic groups) from healthy controls.
Comparing the symptoms and mechanisms of “dissociation” in dissociative identity disorder and borderline personality disorder

TLDR
Alter identities seemed to generate most—but not all—dissociative phenomena in DID patients, whereas only the 24% highest scoring BPD patients (MID ≥45) seemed to manifest alter-driven dissociative experiences.
The Dissociative Subtype of PTSD Interview (DSP-I): Development and Psychometric Properties
TLDR
The Dissociative Subtype of PTSD Interview (DSP-I) appears to be a clinically relevant and psychometrically sound instrument that is valuable for use in clinical and research settings.

TLDR
The goals of this study were to document the PAI profile of Dissociative identity disorder (DID) and dissociative disorder not otherwise specified (DDNOS) patients and to determine how the validity and Schizophrenia scales are related to other PAI scales as well as dissociation.
Development and Validation of the Dissociative Symptoms Scale
TLDR
The results provide support for the reliability and validity of DSS total and subscale scores in the populations studied and further work is needed to evaluate the performance of the DSS relative to structured interview measures and in samples of patients with other psychological disorders.
Are Major Dissociative Disorders Characterized by a Qualitatively Different Kind of Dissociation?
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the dissociation that occurs in major dissociative disorders is qualitatively different from the Dissociative Experiences Scale, the Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation, and the Symptom Checklist 90–Revised.
Dissociative Amnesia in Dissociative Disorders and Borderline Personality Disorder: Self-Rating Assessment in a College Population
TLDR
Internal consistency analyses and test–retest evaluations suggested that the SDAQ is a reliable instrument for the population studied, and BPD was characterized by better awareness of DA in self-report than other dissociative disorders.
Dissociation in Borderline Personality Disorder: A Detailed Look
TLDR
The frequencies of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed.) DDs in these patients with BPD were surprisingly high, and the “average” BPD patient endorsed a wide variety of recurrent pathological dissociative symptoms.

TLDR
In a sample of clinical and nonclinical research participants, the H-MID had strong internal consistency, temporal stability, and strong structural, convergent, discriminant, and construct validity.
The Development and Psychometric Characteristics of the Somatoform Dissociation Questionnaire (SDQ‐20)
TLDR
The Somatoform Dissociation Questionnaire (SDQ-20) is a scale of good psychometric quality, which measures somatoform dissociation, and the symptoms pertain to negative and positive dissociative phenomena, which were well known in 19th century French psychiatry as the mental stigmata and mental accidents of hysteria.

TLDR
The Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) has been developed to offer a means of reliably measuring dissociation in normal and clinical populations and was able to distinguish between subjects with a dissociative disorder (multiple personality) and all other subjects.
The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-III-R Dissociative Disorders: preliminary report on a new diagnostic instrument.
TLDR
Preliminary findings from a study of 48 subjects with and without psychiatric diagnoses indicate good to excellent reliability and discriminant validity for the SCID-D as a diagnostic instrument for the five Dissociative disorders and as a tool for the evaluation of dissociative symptoms encountered within nondissociative syndromes.
Development and validation of a measure of adolescent dissociation: the Adolescent Dissociative Experiences Scale.
TLDR
The initial reliability and validity data on the Adolescent Dissociative Experiences Scale (A-DES) showed good scale and subscale reliability, and, as hypothesized, increased scores were associated with reported trauma in a patient population.
