JAMES BLOCH, Ph.D. Dr James Bloch is a licensed clinical psychologist in independent practice in Louisville, KY. He has twenty years of experience in community mental health practice, supervision and administration. Formerly a member of the faculty in the psychology department at Spaulding University, Dr. Bloch has also helped develop a consortium internship program in clinical psychology and has presented extensively in regional training events. His major area of professional interest is the identification and treatment of multiple personality and dissociative disorders. He has taught and lectured widely on the topic, culminating in the publication of his book, entitled Assessment and Treatment of Multiple Personality and Dissociative Disorders. The book is a guidebook providing the reader with state of the art information about Multiple Personality and Dissociative Disorders, which is why we have invited Dr. Bloch to be the first of our speakers on Multiple Personality and Dissociate Disorders.
