Free Talk – Supporting someone in a Dissociative Crisis, 19th & 20th Dec

Back up and running – sorry for the inconvenience of cancelling the previous date. On the plus side – there’s now two of them!

The Dissociative Initiative

New dates have been set! Both are free, one is within school/work hours, one outside of them. The same talk will presented at each time.

6.30 -8pm, Thursday 19th Dec

OR

11.30am – 1pm, Friday 20th Dec

Mental Illness Fellowship of SA, 5 Cooke Terrace, Wayville

This is the presentation I (Sarah) recently delivered at the World Hearing Voices Congress in Melbourne. It will run for an hour with an opportunity to ask questions. The talk was developed to help close a gap in the Mental Health First Aid training, which does not mention dissociative crisis. Principles of crisis work are covered, as well as recognising and usefully responding to severe general dissociation, and common crisis points for people with parts (Dissociative Identity Disorder, or ‘multiple personalities’). Sarah is a peer worker with lived experience of severe dissociation and DID, and many years experience in supporting other people in crisis.
