Thank you to BetterHelp for sponsoring this video! Dissociation, what is it, how do deal it? Mental Heath Videos with Kati Morton Dissociation is a term in psychology describing a wide array of experiences from mild detachment from immediate surroundings to more severe detachment from physical and emotional experience. It is commonly displayed on a continuum. The major characteristic of all dissociative phenomena involves a detachment from reality -- rather than a loss of reality as in psychosis. In mild cases, dissociation can be regarded as a coping mechanism or defense mechanisms in seeking to master, minimize or tolerate stress -- including boredom or conflict. At the nonpathological end of the continuum, dissociation describes common events such as daydreaming while driving a vehicle. Further along the continuum are non-pathological altered states of consciousness. More pathological dissociation involves dissociative disorders, including dissociative fugue and depersonalization disorder with or without alterations in personal identity or sense of self. These alterations can include: a sense that self or the world is unreal (depersonalization and derealization); a loss of memory (amnesia); forgetting identity or assuming a new self (fugue); and fragmentation of identity or self into separate streams of consciousness (dissociative identity disorder, formerly termed multiple personality disorder) and complex post-traumatic stress disorder. Dissociative disorders are sometimes triggered by trauma, but may be preceded only by stress, psychoactive substances, or no identifiable trigger at all. The ICD-10 classifies conversion disorder as a dissociative disorder. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders groups all dissociative disorders into a single category. Although some dissociative disruptions involve amnesia, other dissociative events do not. Dissociative disorders are typically experienced as startling, autonomous intrusions into the person's usual ways of responding or functioning. Due to their unexpected and largely inexplicable nature, they tend to be quite unsettling.

Comments

Cara Eastwood: I just absolutely loved that 6:13 - 6:15. Best thing ever. Xoxo

Erin Okay: I feel like you're staring into my soul lol. When you ask "okay?" "does that make sense?" I can tell you are lovely to work with.

Janie Is A Banana: I mean sometimes I feel like I’m not myself, like everything I say is a lie and I don’t feel any emotions. And I feel like the person speaking isn’t me. It usually happens when I’m extremely tired or depressed but lately it’s been happening a lot more.

Francisca Molina: This is good to know !

Abiyah Rina: Piss off

blah blah: I’ve been looking for the right word for how I was feeling for so long. I would always say, “why am I always “zoning out” so much?”. My friends and family never understood and just said that I needed more sleep. I knew that it was never just that. And maybe I’m starting to figure this out now.

ashley hamilton: This happens to me when I drive sometimes, I'm not sure how I come out of it but I do eventually

TechMantra: This is something new for me. I'll get into a mental state where I feel like I'm observing from the outside. Like it's not me controlling myself. It's so strange.

Yuki L: A chunk of my childhood is a big haze due to dissociation. Trust me, I'd trade anything to feel something than nothing.

Joanna Hamilton: I used to really struggle with dissociation, especially when I was kid. It helped when I make a list of everything I could see and touch (while touching them) to ground myself It wasn't very useful to list things I couldn't touch, like the sun, or a clock high up on a wall. Using more than one sense at a time was most helpful for me.

However, I just spent the last 2 months at work barely remembering what happened during the day and I was just going through the motions and just kind of checking-out when I was out of my apartment. My lists didn't help me anymore, so I started writing down everything I was doing and why I needed to do it and it helped me sort my priorities and create a less stressful and more organized routine. Since then, I've been doing a bit better, but still forgetting things sometimes.

Hope this helps someone ^_^

Sue: I've pretty much had depersonalization going on since, probably, childhood. There was however a period of my life where things were ok. I am now 56, and have multiple diagnoses such as borderline personality... I don't think of depersonalization as actually a problem anymore. It helps me cope with all of my mental health problems. It is better than alternatives such as being suicidal.....

Ryan Murphy: Exercise!!!!

Matty Green: i still dont understand if im dissociating or just zooning out and making this a bigger thing than it is like i dont really "black out" do you have to do that? its more like when im drunk kinda. like i do things withut really thinking or just sit and do nothing and my vision gets worse. i can also be talking to someone and suddenly forget what i was talking about or not at all hearing/understanding what theyre saying. idk its hard to explain

Jessica Ohare: I don't reallly remember about 95% of my senior year of high school and the year after that cause I was extremely depressed and I lost my childhood cat. I think it's happened since then as well but not for such long periods of time. I kind of doubt a lot of the memories that I have now.

clique stan: Does it always have to be because of a traumatizing past?

Brittany Humeniuk: When I start naming the things I see around me to ground myself I can feeling myself coming down out of the dissociate state so fast it’s like I’m on the top floor in an elevator and drop from 10 to 1 in a second. I haven’t gotten use to this yet but it’s works fantastically for me.

Ray Renati: I try to tell myself my brain is just having a glitch and even though it feels awful, it's not who I am at my core. It won't kill me and eventually it will go away. I have complex PTSD as a result of child abuse and I had a a concussion in August 2017, so I have periods now when all this comes back ti me much more often. I just have to keep going and believe I will get better.

Marie Gallardo: What if you can't remember the details?

Kadie Carmignani: Essential oils can kind of have a strong smell, eucalyptus and tea tree oil are kind of strong (but make sure whatever you use is safe for your pets- tee tree oil is known to be toxic to dogs)

Jaxon crandall: Could you make a video of Bipolar VS BPD VS DID please???????????
