I wondered if maybe you could do something about secondary and tertiary dissociation and how this would present in patients and maybe how difficult to discover this phenomenon might be.
I know that question has little to do with bullying. However, I think this might be a really good topic because I now suspect that this phenomenon is actually very common and I don’t believe that we can stop the transmission from parent to child of generational trauma w/o discussing dissociation like this. I’ve read several books on dissociation recently and I have read by a doctor named Frank Putman MD, that resolving a parents dissociation would be critical to stopping passing this trauma to the next generation.
Thank you so very much. (And if there are typos, sorry.... on iPhone).
Thank you so much for the topic idea. And, yes, I think it is a very important subject. I interviewed the brilliant Janyne McConnaughey, PhD, regarding her BRAVE journey through trauma and her experience with dissociation. Here is the link to our interview and her website: https://www.janyne.org/ & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7ARg2-gOOk
Part of her bio includes: Janyne McConnaughey, Ph.D., retired from a forty-year career in education while healing from the attachment wounding and trauma she experienced as a child. During therapy, she wrote her way to healing and now is redeeming her story by helping others to understand the lifelong effects of childhood trauma and insecure attachment.
I also interviewed a poet, who at the time of our interview requested anonymity, about his D.I.D. diagnosis and story from trauma to triumph, titled Dissociative Identity Disorder and Poetic Healing. You can listen to that interview at: https://blubrry.com/thehealing...rder-poetic-healing/
If you are looking for me to possibly do something different from these 2 episodes, let me know of any experts you know of in the field and I can reach out to them for possible guest appearance on the podcast.
