This conference in York follows on from the success of the first ever joint NHS/Private conference on dissociation held in Norwich last year.

With increased awareness  of dissociation, the importance of an integrated approach between the public and private sector has become central to a positive treatment outcome.

Using a filmed conversation with a DID client to understand the basics

Understanding from people with lived in experience

Forensic Issues:
