“When I drive places, I often don’t remember what happened during most of the trip.” “I feel like I keep having the same relationship over and over with different people.” “I can’t believe I said/did that… that’s so not me!”
These are just a few examples of what it’s like to experience trauma-related dissociation. Contrary to what movies might lead us to believe, dissociation is common and normal response to a stressful or traumatic situation, and can be effectively treated and healed if we recognize it and treat it accordingly. Come learn about how we understand dissociation happens, how to recognize signs and symptom mild, moderate, and severe dissociation, and get some ideas of how to begin to assess and heal what you have learned to recognize.
