Course description:

Dissociative disorders can be hard to diagnose and hard to understand.

This group of disorders includes the syndrome that used to be known as “Multiple Personality Disorder”. 

This course uses a text written by a medical doctor which introduces the concepts of dissociative disorders to other helping professionals in an accessible way.

Guidelines for available treatment strategies are noted and hypnotherapy is a feature of possible approaches. 

Typical presenting syndromes are outlined so that doctors and other helping professionals can be alert to the possibility of dissociative disorder. 

The role of dissociative disorders in post-traumatic stress, body-image problems, eating disorders, sleep disorders and sexual disorders is presented. 

There is also material on family relationships where a family member is dissociative.   

Entry Criteria:  Open entry.

Suitability:      

This course will be of interest to counsellors, hypnotherapists and psychotherapists as well as all those who care for or come into contact with people with dissociative disorders.
