About the Course:
In this workshop Mary-Anne discusses the findings from her doctoral research, including from in-depth interviews with 13 in-patients with a Dissociative Disorder (DD), and results from 313 participants from an Australian university and 30 individuals in treatment for a DD who completed a questionnaire assessing dissociation (a 60 question version of Dell’s Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation), adult attachment style (Holmes & Lyons-Ruth’s Relationship Questionnaire), experiences of childhood maltreatment (a revised version of Freyd, Deprince, & Zurbriggen’s Betrayal Trauma Index), and dynamics between themselves and their parents during their childhood (Kate’s Parent-Child Dynamics Questionnaire). Mary-Anne predicted more than 50% of a person’s dissociative symptomology on the basis of specific childhood experiences of abuse, negative parent-child dynamics, an insecure attachment style, and the parents’ role in, or reaction to, any abuse experienced. In light of this statistical analysis, Mary-Anne will use vignettes from in-patients to describe the pathogenic family environment in which dissociation occurs. This workshop will enable participants to recognize specific risk factors, which may assist participants in identifying children at risk of developing a DD, and children and adults with a DD, as well as providing a greater understanding about the childhood environment that leads to dissociation in adulthood.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, The Childhood Experiences That Lead to Dissociation in Adulthood: Stories from a Dissociative Disorders In-patient Unit and Statistical Insights from Questionnaires with Students, Out-patients and In-patients created by Mary Anne Kate, PhD in 2019.
