What is Complex Trauma and Dissociation? Interview Series with Bethany Brand

This week, we get to hear from Bethany Brand, Ph.D., internationally recognized expert in trauma and dissociative disorders, including Dissociative Identity Disorder. Full bio below.S: How did your interest in dissociative disorders start?
B: I found out in high school that a friend of mine was being sexually abused by her dad, as were her two sisters. He was an official in their church and it was startling to me.  It looked like she was all together.  So as a high schooler, I started learning a little bit about trauma and  over the next few years, her sisters began to have a lot of trouble, and they’ve had a lot of psychiatric troubles for decades now.

  1. Wish she had a Twitter account.

  2. An absolute amazing account from Brand, shows her expertise and understanding of a very confusing n controversial disorder of how ones brain can function. I know that more work, openmindedness and information must be gathered and shared so that more professionals will become more accepting n skilled in this very understudied brains way of functioning. That way more people can become more accepting of themselves. Is that not the end result that creates peace and less trauma to a persons brain, the body and the heart.
