Has anyone heard of a therapy called, alternately ego state therapy and if so is it a form of hypnosis?
was wondering if anyone has heard of this type of therapy…Alternately Ego State Therapy. It goes along with the treatment with people having DID or MPD, and if you have heard of it, is it a form of hypnosis and is it called any other name?

ego-state: it’s a psychodynamic approach to treat various behavioral and cognitive problems within a person. It uses techniques that are common in group and family therapy to resolve conflicts that constitute a “family of self” within a single individual. Although covert ego states do not normally become open and observable except in true multiple personality disorder, they are hypnotically activated and made accessible for communication with by a therapist. Various psychotherapeutic techniques such as behavioral, cognitive, analytic, or humanistic techniques may then be employed in a kind of internal diplomacy. This approach has demonstrated that complex psychodynamic problems can often be resolved in a much shorter period than with analytic therapies.

    As more has been learned about our mind’s work to survive major trauma, the condition “Multiple Personality Disorder” is now known to be one end of a pendulum of survival responses to trauma in a child. In 1991, at age 30, an ugly divorce (fresh trauma) sent me into counseling because I thought I was losing my mind. I was having “body” flash backs, and memories of the sexual abuse by an uncle, finding myself crawling into my closet to hide, and other things. I was diagnosed with “well defined ego states.” Distinct aspects of my ego that came to the surface when a situation set off certain alarms. I never blacked out or lost hours of time but would zone out when driving. With help I learned to be sensitive to when these ego states kicked in. To identify a few: Negative Mom, nurturer, protector.
    Think of your self as a glass vase that has been dropped and broken into pieces, which is patched together as best as can be done at the time. You leak, you look different than other vases, but, you still function. Each shard is a part of the vase, but separate. Integrating the pieces so they blend together as a whole functioning communicating piece again is what integrating the ego states is about. Almost like re-melting the glass to reform the vase. Establishing a trusting relationship with the counselor who had experience in Dissociation Disorders was the most important key.
    I never knew exactly how to refer to my counseling. Finally I chose “integration” therapy. Alternately (sp?) alternating ego state therapy is not hypnosis, but hypnosis can be used at appropriate times during the long, long process of integration. Each person and their counselor work together to tailor the exact processes that lead you to become a survivor and not the victim of abuse. Hope this helped.
