Resources

 

This section provides a range of resources and helpful information that I’ve compiled with a focus on people with dissociation-related issues or who are in dissociation-related professions.

 

My understanding of, and perspective on, Dissociation is based on two things: personal experience of Dissociative Identity Response, both in myself and through interacting with many others who suffered varied effects of dissociation; and a background of social work and lay counseling. As a friend put it, I am a generalist in a specialist’s world, with a basic grasp of numerous related topics that give me a big picture overview to draw upon in my suggestions and advice.

 

think_outside_the_box_minimalist_by_devil_thedeviant-d63az8b.pngI make many statements expressing my personal opinions and beliefs. Only some of this is backed up by “official” education, research or documentation – quite a bit is my own interpretations based on my life experiences and personal observations.  A fair bit of my own material differs from commonly accepted understandings and standards, traditional and current, and may therefore call you to open to the possibilities of new thoughts and ideas in paradigm shifting ways.

Yes, in the best interest of all you care about, I ask you to think outside the box. Allow your heart, soul, and intuition to enlighten your responses and what you do with these new thoughts and possibilities. Who knows what delightful magic will happen when you do!

 

Important Definitions 
Part of my goal is promoting understanding, and much of what I write and speak about is still unknown or misunderstood by most people. So, here are links to some general definitions of pertinent Dissociation-related words and concepts.
