Trauma and Dissociation joins expert knowledge about trauma, mind programming, & dissociation from both lived experience & the perspective of a therapist; this book is designed to help people living with a dissociative disorder as well as carers supporting them & helping to aid their recovery. It has a focus on the use of systemic mind programming in the context of cults and the associated trauma of this ritualistic abuse; this book addresses a gap in resources to provide training and therapeutic approaches to both those living with mind control & installed Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), and those who support them such as a carer, family member, or mental health professional. DID is a condition that is provoked from the experience of being mind controlled, enabling abusers to manipulate their victims during and beyond the period of abuse, whilst simultaneously occurring naturally as a survival mechanism. Developed from both lived experience and expert knowledge from a specialist in trauma work, content covers therapeutic approaches such as attachment theory and trauma-informed care, established training approaches for support staff, and personal survival stories.
