The Dissociative Experiences Scale (Bernstein & Putnam, 1986) is a reliable and valid scale that is widely used in diagnosing dissociative disorders. Analyze and discuss the questions on this scale in the following areas:

Do the questions appear to be consistent with a DSM-5 diagnosis of dissociative disorder? Why or why not?

Are there any questions that may not be culturally sensitive? Why or why not?

As a social worker working with a client, when would you decide it is necessary to use this scale?

Based on the DSM-5 criteria, are there questions you would add to this scale?
