Understanding, Recognizing & Treating
Dissociative Disorders in Children & Adolescents
When children are sexually abused, particularly within their families, they are trapped. Lacking the power and resources to leave or fight back, they dissociate, hiding core aspects of themselves within. In an incestuous family, where the abuse is ongoing over a period of time, some children develop internal worlds, splitting off entire parts of themselves, developing other, incomplete selves. This workshop will help workers recognize Dissociative Disorders in children and adolescents, and provide guidelines for treating them.
