After receding into relative obscurity for much of the twentieth century, there has been a vigorous renewal of interest in the role of dissociation in the understanding of human responses to catastrophic events. The theoretical contributions and clinical observations of Janet, which had been largely eclipsed by developments within modern ego psychology, self-psychology, and more recently in neurobiology, have enjoyed a resurgence of interest. Putnam (1989), and van der Kolk and van der Hart (1989a, 1989b) have provided contemporary reinterpretations of the contributions of Janet to the understanding of traumatic stress and dissociation.
