What you are descibing is definitely child abuse, and an awful way to try to discipline children - and as you've noticed, it continues to spread the damage across generations.
I have no doubt at all that experiencing such awful parental / family behaviour would be highly unpleasant and potentially damaging, and that dissociation is one of several ways a child might try to cope with it.
Now, what you describe has nothing to do with witchcraft, and "generational witchcraft" is not a recognized problem. Indeed, complex FBI investigations of such claims found no evidence that it ever actually occurred. What you describe is quite nasty enough to deserve respect and help.
I have written at length in textbooks about MPD/DID, and I think there is no longer any doubt that the whole epidemic of this "disorder" included an enormous amount of quackery and foolishness on the part of many therapists and "therapists" who did great harm to many people under the pretense of helping them.
Treated realistically, and CBT would be a useful place to start, in my experience the symptoms usually ascribed to MPD/DID tend to fade and people tend to get btter ; in the hands of a credulous MPD/DID specialist, such people invariably get worse, and their symptoms get more complex and unpleasant over years of "therapy". And interestingly, in the USA, when they eventually run out of funds and their "specialist" therapist stops treating them, they usuaolly get bettert
