Mueller-Pfeiffer, C; Wittmann, L (2013). Preliminary investigation of the reliability and validity of the German version of the State Scale of Dissociation (SSD). Journal of Traumatic Stress Disorders & Treatment, 2(2):e1-e4.

Abstract

Background: This study evaluated a German translation of the State Scale of Dissociation (SSD), a self-report measure of state dissociation.
Methods: Consecutively treated out- and day-care patients with (n = 27) and without a dissociative disorder (n = 90) were assessed with the SSD and the Multidimensional Inventory for Dissociation.
Results: The German SSD showed good reliability, good concurrent and convergent validity, and was sensitive to change in symptoms. Discriminant validity at the subscale level was limited.
Conclusion: The German SSD is a reliable and valid measure for the assessment of state dissociation in general psychiatric out- and day-care patients.
