DISSOCIATION

Dissociation is a disconnection between a person’s memories, feelings, behaviors, perceptions, and/or sense of self

For those who experience mild dissociation, it would be considered as daydreaming or escaping reality for a short period. However, if it is prolonged, it is always important to find out what could have caused this disorder.

Symptoms of prolonged dissociation:

-anxiety

-PTSD

-Depression

-OCD

For the most part, numbers have shown the most common cause and or symptom of dissociation is trauma.

dissociation typically affects people who have experienced physical or sexual abuse, kidnapping, a life-threatening car accident, or a natural disaster.

The question you may want to ask yourself is,

“Is there trauma that may have occurred, that has been swept under the rug?”

If you find yourself disconnecting from the real world frequently, therapy is always there to help. If you want the help, Star Point Counseling Center, would be a great start. For more information on setting up an appointment, visit
