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.

Gloria Peta: You're a wonderful counselor! Everything you teach makes complete sense! What state are you in? I'm in Shillington, Pa.
Sierra Hoyland: I don't know if what I have is this but sometimes it's like I'm floating in my head and it's like I'm looking out at the world but it doesn't feel real it's like I'm looking out of someone else's eyes and sometimes I begin to question everything my body tingles and I know one time in high school it happened right as I was about to drive to school and I completely forgot how to drive for a few minute
IamWhoIAm MeantToBe: Can dissociation be like staring into space drifting away and then later when you come back to reality you've realised that time has passed and you don't know what happened in that lost time?
QueenCuddles: I have C PTSD. I smell lemon. it helps.
Andrew: Are dissociation disorders related to psychosis. Shared my symptoms to a professional and they told me I had psychosis.
SlothInSpace: is this a ne...oh wait its not a new host
Poetic Haunting: I looked this video up because I was experiencing a lot of dissociation episodes lately, and I had to watch it three times to actually get the message of this video because I kept slipping out of my head.
Arrogant Swami: Wow I was just going to comment saying I don't remember alot of my life because I detached from it and then I had an epiphany that the movie CLICK with Adam Sandler could've been about the same thing smh. I have ADHD and "social Anxiety" and I think I'm depressed I don't remember ever having peace if mind people just don't understand me my dad pushed me away too hard when I started failing classes and medicine made me more lethargic I think they were giving me way too high of a dosage as a kid. but I realized I have to do it myself this is my first video about disassociation but I know it's real before I watch it and I'm glad u can help
Louis 1976: What do I do if I am alone and someone is taking advantage of me?
Alana Cowdery-Brewster: I keep on having these 'episodes' where suddenly I really, REALLY struggle to talk to anyone (I'm normally a very talkative person, so when these 'episodes' happen my friends all know almost immediately) and I feel very emotionally numb, like I've lost parts of myself, like strong emotions that make me ME. It happens quite often and sometimes it lasts for minutes and sometimes days. I have no idea what it is, and dissociative disorder is the closest that I've got but it still doesn't sound that accurate. Can anyone help figure out what I'm experiencing?
I'm fifteen years old, and I haven't had any traumatic experiences in my life if that information helps.
Andra Maria Wellness: Great video Kati, love how you simplify things!
Anna Baumann: For me, it feels like I'm constantly falling backwards. I can't focus on anything, can't follow what's happening, and then, suddenly, it's over and I'm back. So weird.
The Equatable Skeptic: Mine has been caused from a terrible acid trip that left me traumatised
ANTIHERO: I don't know what all these comments are about but whenever I've had a dissociative episode I've literally felt like I'm going to die. Nothing is "real", or everything is too "real".. I become totally detached, I have to pace and talk myself out off calling 911.. If you think you've had a spell for longer than an hour or so it's not a dissociative state.
Henk Spermatank: I lost my mom 6 months ago
Im now 16 she died when i was 15 and i feel like this i hate it. I felt pretty good first few months but now it hits me i am very sad, numb, no joy in activities and i find it hard to judge myself in social situations
Mike Scott: I would not ever go into the smallest minutiae. Humiliation is not necessary.
loversarelunatics: I need help finding a good therapist.
이영수: everything is true story. i have Full lifetime DVD . connected multi trillion enviormental things.
Elisa Jackson: I just wanted to add a couple things that have helped me a lot, and maybe it will help you too: first, in my experience, if you struggle with this, it is really important to have someone you trust (not just your therapy, a friend, family member, etc..) to talk about it. someone who knows what is going on, and that you can reach out when you need to. The other thing, is when you are in one of those sacry scary moments, besides the things Kati told us to do, Take you shoes and socks off! feel the ground/floor and know you are there.
Since this has been such a big part of me, I just wanted to share it with you
Serenity 1990: Every therapy session, I go into dissociation. working in that state obviously doesn't do much good, so we generally have to start and end with techniques to ground me. the best one so far has been tossing an object back and forth. usually a ball of sorts. he'll throw it at my face quickly and unexpectedly and that will jolt me back. lol.
