With April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we are discussing a symptom that many survivors experience: dissociation. As a survivor, it’s common to feel out of alignment with your body but it is possible to find your way back… and that’s the purpose of this episode.
In today’s episode, we’ll explore dissociation, depersonalization, and derealization... focusing primarily on dissociation and depersonalization. You are encouraged to take notes or revisit this episode because you’re going to learn a lot!
DISCLAIMER: Please only use this information as a tool to educate yourself… not to diagnose yourself. If you think you experience dissociation, please contact a mental health professional.
