The Trauma and Dissociation Project

We are raising awareness of all dissociative disorders including:  dissociative identity disorder, dissociative amnesia, depersonalization disorder/derealization , other specified dissociative disorder,  and unspecified dissociative disorder, as well as the trauma and stressor-related disorders including: reactive attachment disorder, disinhibited social engagement disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder,  acute stress disorder, adjustment disorders, other specified trauma and stressor-related disorder, and unspecified trauma and stressor-related disorder.

Detailed information is kept on the Trauma and Dissociation Wiki . This project  is  based on the best academic sources available today.  Updates to the wiki, relevant quotes, images and information are posted on the project’s facebook page, which has a focus on education and healing.

The Trauma and Dissociation Wiki is full of useful information including: discussion of the association between mental disorders with severe and prolonged child abuse, and how each disorder is featured in the American Psychological Association’s DSM-5 manual, and copious scientific information including academic references so you can improve your understanding of trauma and dissociation.
