Dissociation-related Definitions


Pertinent Words and Concepts


My goal is promoting understanding of Dissociation.

At this point though, much of what I write and speak about is  still unknown or misunderstood by most people.

So here are some general definitions of pertinent dissociation-related words and concepts to familiarize yourselves with and become accustomed to hearing about and using.

The material in these Definitions is not meant as therapy or to take the place of therapy. Some of this information may trigger distressing responses, so please practice self-care and use caution and common sense while reading this material. 
Many of these Definitions are quoted verbatim from, or were adapted with permission from the FAQs pages at NATRCoalition.org/faq/ and ra-info.org/faqs/ .
Others were quoted or adapted as noted.
