Webinar on Dissociation as a common factor in many “mental disorders” including psychosis
Posted May 02 2011 12:00am
Here’s my first, very amateur webinar – this is using software that is just for pre-recorded webinars, if I really get into doing them it’s best to do them live with software that costs money to use.
Understanding Trauma Related Dissociation and Its Role a Wide Variety of Disorders, including Psychosis
This is a free Webinar, 50 minutes long, that outlines how one basic process, dissociation in response to trauma and stress, can lead to a wide variety of “mental disorders” including anxiety, depression, PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and the psychotic disorders including schizophrenia. (Of course, it can also lead to the disorders that are explicitly recognized to be connected with dissociation, such as Dissociative Identity Disorder.)
This is an experimental venture on my part, so my apologies for the fact that the technical quality is not great. The Webinar is in 4 sections, due to limitations on video length at Youtube.
I’d be very interested in hearing your thoughts or your questions about this subject matter and/or about the way I present it.
In the future, I’m thinking about doing a lot more with web based education, some of which would be free and some where people could pay and earn continuing education credits. So this could be the start of something big…..
