Interesting topic. Your options include etiology (=cause) from the different levels of explanation, cross-cultural aspects of the phenomenon, and maybe even the history of the disease like how it was viewed before modern science. You might even be able to include the difficulty of diagnosing the disorder. Either way, pick the part that appeals most to you and research like crazy. You could start with Google Scholar.

What has your advisor said btw?

Interesting topic, you could start by reading an interesting article found at the bottom of this page. Your options include etiology (=cause), cross-cultural aspects of the phenomenon, and maybe even the history of the disease like how it was viewed before modern science. You might even be able to include the difficulty of diagnosing the disorder. Either way, pick the part that appeals most to you and research like crazy. You could start with Google Scholar.

That sounds about right, evaluate the different explanations of the cause of the disorders from the different perspectives. A book was also written by a woman with MPD called Today I'm Alice that may be worth a read.

it is better to have a specific research question as what my psychology teacher has said.

maybe you can narrow down your research question by only analysing and evaluating the etiology from one perspective, such as socio-cultural factors.

good luck ;)
