Trigger Warning: This episode includes frank discussion regarding abuse, trauma, and dissociation
During this episode, we dig deeper into a specific symptom of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Dissociation. Dissociation is an extremely adaptive response to overwhelming events, but gets in the way of healthy functioning when it happens more frequently or becomes extreme. Kim and Malachi discuss what dissociation feels like, the purposes it serves, and how to help yourself ground and manage dissociation.
