Treatment of Patients with Dissociative Disorders A Project of Research & Enrichment

Help Towson Lead the Way in Life-Saving Research

You've probably seen characters with dissociative disorders on TV or in movies. You know Dissociative Identity Disorder by its old name: Multiple Personality Disorder. But those Hollywood stories aren't real. People with a real dissociative disorder were horribly abused as a child. For them, even when the abuse is over, surviving is an everyday struggle like none you have ever known.

Here's what movies don't tell you: Dissociative identities can be cured.

How can you help?

Funding for the average psychology treatment study provides for treatment that lasts only weeks. Recovering from a dissociative disorder takes years. Your gift will continue TU Psychology Professor Bethany Brand's history-making, worldwide study of treatment options, and give her team the time they need to save lives. You can continue that impact with a contribution to Dr. Brand's critically needed research.

In addition, thanks to a generous matching gift form an anonymous donor of up to $5,000, your support will be matched dollar-for-dollar through June 30, 2017. Make an even larger impact with your gift today!
