Dissociative disorder involves disruptions and separations in the normally well-integrated functions of memory, identity, perception, and consciousness. A person with a dissociative disorder feels detached from reality and one's own mental processes, as though he or she is in a dream, and may feel spaced out and unable to concentrate. Dissociative disorder develops most frequently after traumatic experiences that force the mind to distance itself from or compartmentalize unacceptable knowledge, information, or feelings. Written for sufferers of dissociative disorder, their friends and family members, and therapists working with clients with these issues, Overcoming Dissociative Disorder explains the most common symptoms of dissociative disorder and includes helpful tools for diagnosing various types and degrees of dissociative disorder. Readers will learn how to move past feelings of detachment and unreality using skills drawn from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and identify conditions that may be comorbid with dissociative disorder.
