Once again, DPD has surfaced in the defense of someone's bad actions. And once again, no one knows what they're talking about. The problem seems to stem from the fact that DPD is listed under Dissociative Disorders in the DSM-IV. So, too often it gets lumped in with DID, Dissociative Fugue, and other things that can account for losses of memory or blackouts. DPD is a unique disorder unto itself that is quite different. Casey Anthony definitely did not suffer from it. I mention this fact briefly in a recent radio interview found here: http://audio.yourtimewithkim.com/m/audio/40762930/your-time-with-kim-6-2-11-no-music.htm
