“Dissociation is an entirely normal response to overwhelming trauma.”
Since 2010, PODS (Positive Outcomes for Dissociative Survivors) have been running training days throughout the UK about dissociation, complex trauma, somatisation and attachment. This essential Resource Guide brings together, in its first half, many of the facts and statistics that delegates on those training days have learned about, including definitions, diagnostic criteria, prevalence statistics, causes, and signs and symptoms of dissociative disorders such as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). The second half is a selection of relevant articles from a more experiential perspective – that of the dissociative survivor, as well as a partner. This unique combination of fact and first person perspective makes this a must-read resource for anyone suffering from trauma-related dissociation, or any professionals working in this field.
