What Is Dissociation?

In this video I am going to explain what Dissociation is.
Dissociation is one way that our minds cope when we are overwhelmed by stress. It is usually in response to a trauma in childhood in which we have felt powerless. It can last minutes, hours or days. Dissociative episodes that last longer than this are usually a sign of a Dissociative Disorder of which there are three types: Dissociative Disorder of Movement and Sensation, Dissociative Amnesia, Dissociative Identity Disorder. I will explain more about each of these in the video.
If there is anything that you would like to see here on this channel, please let me know in the comments and I will do my best to make you a video.

If you have any questions then please post your comments below and I will do my best to help.

I am the Lead Clinical Psychologist at The British CBT & Counselling Service and find that I am often the first person with whom my patients share significant and intimate thoughts and memories. I feel at ease being a therapist, I feel I can empathise with people’s distress and discomfort but don’t feel overwhelmed by it, I can understand their problem and know how to help, it has always just felt like what I should be doing.
