Addressed 3 research questions: (1) What is the inter-rater reliability of 3 different raters, both when rating the graphic characteristics and when placing patients within a graphic profile? (2) How well does the placement, by the raters, of patients within a graphic profile compare to the clinical diagnosis and the conclusions from Structured Clinic Interview for DSM-IV Dissociative Disorders? and (3) Does an analysis of the relationship between the graphic characteristics, as they are found in the graphic profile of patients with dissociative disorders, provide any indications that the graphic profile could form a basis for the development of an actuarial decision-making process for the Diagnostic Drawing Series. 17 patients with dissociative identity disorder and 12 patients with dissociative disorder not otherwise specified were the subjects. The inter-rater reliability is this study was unsatisfactory. Accuracy in the rating of the graphic characteristics seems to be too heavily dependent on experience.
