Links & Resources

Links, Information, Articles, and Survivor Resources

The following links are not ALL specific to dissociation or DID. There are many other issues involved with dissociation, and there is a lot of overlap with diagnoses and symptomology and cognitive and emotional experiences. So some of these are about DID/dissociation, and some are more about fringe issues or related things.

Disclaimer:  I have not personally reviewed every single statement in every single resource linked here, nor do I necessarily agree with or endorse any or all of the opinions represented or expressed therein.  Some of these resources may be considered helpful to some people in some situations.  <Insert some more random formal-sounding stuff.>  Thanks for your understanding.

Remember, as you read, to keep yourself safe.  Some of the links may contain triggering material.  If you find this is the case, take care of yourself and stop reading if necessary.  Do what you need to do to orient yourself.  You can always come back to it later, or skip to the next resource.
