Dissociative Disorders (DD) are a function of psychopathic childhood disease evidenced by fMRI scans that reflect the parts of the brain that respond to damaged parts of the brain. Dissociative Disorders function in such a way that they identify with Dissociative Amnesia, but this form of amnesia does not result in childhood loss of memory.
Symptoms: 1.memory loss. 2.mental health problems. 3.depression ,anxiety,suicidal thoughts. 4.A sence of being detached from yourself. 5.A blurred sense of identity.
Diagnosis: Psychiatrists seek to provide a medical diagnosis of individuals by an assessment of symptoms and signs associated with particular types of mental disorder. The majority of mental health problems are, at least initially, assessed and treated by family physicians during consultations, who may refer a patient on for more specialist diagnosis in acute or chronic cases. Routine diagnostic practice in mental health services typically involves an interview known as a mental status examination, where evaluations are made of appearance and behavior, self-reported symptoms, mental health history, and current life circumstances. comorbidity is very common in psychiatric diagnosis.
Treatment: Psychotherapy is the primary treatment for dissociative disorders. This form of therapy, also known as talk therapy, counseling or psychosocial therapy, involves talking about your disorder and related issues with a mental health provider. The primary focus is to help patients learn to control and contain their symptoms. Patients must learn to deal with dissociation, flashbacks, and intense affects such as rage, terror, and despair. Embarking on a treatment plan can be dangerous if the patient has not developed ways to tolerate the emotional turmoil that arises when uncovering traumatic memories. Control is a major issue for survivors of abuse, and by learning new ways to control and contain their symptoms, patients no longer view themselves as victims of the past.
Pathophysiology: Dissociation is a psychophysiologic process that alters a person's thoughts, feelings, or actions so that, for a time, certain information is not associated or integrated with other information as it normally is. Individuals have an innate potential to dissociate that is reflected in hypnotizability ratings. Traumatic experiences in early childhood may disturb personality development, leading to greater potential for psychodynamic dividedness. Final presentation is shaped by psychodynamic and extrinsic factors, including psychosocial influences.
