- Many therapists and researches are skeptical about the widespread natural occurrence of true MPD or DID. They assert that “real” MPD it as a non-existent or extremely rare phenomenon, affecting only a handful of persons in North America. They view almost all cases of diagnosed MPD as having been artificially created by an iatrogenic (physician induced) process. That is, it deliberately or unconsciously created by a therapist and their clients.
