The Dissociative Experiences Scale is a screening tool for general dissociative psychopathology as it appears in daily life circumstances, not merely at the time of pregnancy or childbirth. Amnesia is one factor among several in the Dissociative Experiences Scale. Spontaneous reports of amnesia in my study group focused on the time of delivery and viewing of the infant. The Dissociative Experiences Scale cannot preclude the possibility of malingering when secondary gain plays a pivotal role. Even so, I reported that two abnormally high scores in my study group suggested malingering. Nevertheless, Mendlowicz and colleagues raise the important issue of methodology.
