Dissociative disorders are mental health conditions characterized by experiencing a lack of connection and continuity between feelings, thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions, and identity. Individuals with dissociative disorders involuntarily escape reality in unhealthy ways that interfere with their functioning in daily life.

Following a traumatic event, some degree of dissociation is common during the event itself or in the hours, days, or weeks that follow. However, in some cases, individuals may develop a dissociative disorder that requires professional treatment, specific diagnosis, and support. Symptoms and signs of dissociative disorders vary based on the type and severity of the condition and may include feeling disconnected from oneself, difficulty handling intense emotions, sudden and unexpected shifts in mood, depression or anxiety, a distorted sense of reality, cognitive issues, and memory lapses.

Most mental health professionals believe that chronic childhood trauma, such as physical or sexual abuse, emotional abuse or neglect, or unpredictable or frightening family environments, is the underlying cause of dissociative disorders. Traumatic events during adulthood such as war, torture, or natural disasters may also cause dissociative disorders.

Treatment for dissociative disorders typically includes psycho counselling and medication, and must occur in a safe and supportive environment. 

Some therapies that can help include 

  • cognitive behavioral counselling (CBT), 
  • dialectical behavioral counselling (DBT), and 
  • eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).

If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have a dissociative disorder, seeking professional help is essential for proper diagnosis and care.
