In the 1980s, Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) suddenly became the talk of the town. Tens of thousands of Americans were diagnosed with an illness that was previously unheard of. A trigger for this sudden epidemic was the release of a film, “Sybil”. Telling the dramatic story of a woman diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder, the film was shown across America making Sybil a household name.

Now, Sybil’s original diagnosis is being challenged. The psychiatric community is divided and people are asking whether MPD exists at all.

Sybil was born in Minnesota in the early 1920s. At the age of 37, she was treated by a psychiatrist, Dr Cornelia Wilbur, who came to believe that her patient was a multiple with 16 ‘alter’ personalities. Under hypnosis Sybil had recovered lost memories of a traumatic childhood. Dr Wilbur believed that Sybil’s mental illness had been caused by these extreme traumas she had experienced in youth. As a way of coping with the distress, Sybil had split- off, creating ‘alter’ personalities at moments of crisis in her life. These ‘alters’ would experience the pain instead of Sybil. It was a compelling theory, that used childhood abuse to explain multiple personalities.
