Why Do People Dissociate

Why Do People Dissociate?  Dissociation is a very common coping method, usually for those who have PTSD or have been through trauma. It is a way of disconnecting with reality so you don’t have to feel all the negative emotions/flashbacks associated with your trauma.  It can also happen during the trauma, for the same reasons- it disconnects you from what is happening, so that you feel less physical and mental pain.
