Three Meanings of Dissociation

by | 5 October 2018 | 2 comments

What is dissociation? It’s a weird word with lots of meanings. In fact, someone once said that it seems to suffer from ‘multiple meaning disorder’! But it’s important to understand that dissociation is an entirely normal, natural process. It’s not something that goes wrong with the brain. It’s something that goes right. It’s what the brain is supposed to do under certain conditions.


  1. Hi Carolyn,
    Thank you for your video. Very informative. When I am hearing about dissociation it often refers as being on a spectrum. Do you have further information about that particular aspect. I am particularly looking into the middle of it , when people are not totally DID and therefore cannot be diagnosed as such but however experience a lot of the DID experience… Any further info would be appreciated. By the way I have already followed your did fundamentals courses but I am looking into further helps in that area. Thank you for your support.

  2. I m in France and I have been struggling to meet therapists who do have enough understanding and experience in DID. This is why I m training myself further into this. I think Caroline’s videos and training courses are tremendous and match her life course perfectly ( i followed one back in 2016 in London)
    What I am hearing through Caroline’s videos gives me the shivers because both my daughters have had traumatic experiences and As a therapist ( i now live in France) everything she says makes sense.
    I m now also more able to accompany people thanks to her clear and precise explanations Thank you so much.
