Types Of Dissociative Disorders
Dissociative disorders can be defined by four categories. Dissociative amnesia is the inability to remember important information to the point where it is far worse than ordinary forgetfulness. It is possible to be linked with a dissociative fugue, which causes the individual to wander with amnesia. Dissociative identity disorder is when an individual displays two or more identities or personality traits. Depersonalization or derealisation disorder is characterized by a significant detachment that causes the affected individual to feel like objects around them are changing size and shape, or that people become inhuman. They also may feel detached from their own body. The fourth dissociative disorder is not specified, as it cannot be diagnosed by the symptoms of the other three categories.
