At the border: Coaching a client with dissociative identity disorder The International Journal of Evidence-Based Coaching and Mentoring

(February, 2014) Coaching/psychotherapy boundaries have been explored theoretically and through surveys. The confidential nature of coaching has precluded direct observation of how they are operationalized. The case presented here was initiated at the invitation of a client who has a clinical diagnosis of Dissociative Identity Disorder and her coach. Their journals, interviews and observed sessions enabled the author to construct a case study that offers insight into how an individual coach and client navigate the coaching/psychotherapy boundaries in practice. The case provides evidence of specific coach and client characteristics and coaching strategies employed in these circumstances.

Results indicate three different catalysts for coach judgments: client characteristics, coaching tasks, and elements of the coaching engagement (including time frames, expected outcomes, organizational or other situational contexts). Through reflective learning, coaches gained insights into four aspects of their coaching: managing boundaries and ethical challenges, self-awareness and self-management, understanding responsive processes, and situational application of theory.
