According to recent survey 2% of people experience dissociative disorders, whereas women are more likely to be diagnosed then men. The symptoms of a dissociative disorder usually first develop as a response to a traumatic event, such as abuse or stressful situations. The goal of this session is to understand the manifestation, prognosis, treatment and diagnosis of various types of dissociative disorders. Treatment for dissociative disorders often involves psychotherapy and medication. There are three main types of dissociative disorders defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders; they are Dissociative Amnesia, Depersonalization disorder and Dissociative identity disorder.
