What Is Dissociative Disorders?

Dissociative disorders are characterized by a disconnection from consciousness, memories, the self, emotions, perception, the body, motor control, and behavior.


How Can Dissociative Disorders Impact Your Life?

The condition often creates a sense of alienation and disconnection in all areas of life. When dissociating, the body is in a vagal state, meaning the body is shut down and unable to engage in the world. When people are in dissociative states they can stop caring for their basic needs and stay in a survival mode. Time becomes warped, social engagement can feel impossible, the sense of self becomes distant, and there’s a lack of clarity and focus. People living with dissociation can feel disconnected from all areas of life.
