Coping With Flashbacks and Dissociation in PTSD

The relationship between hallucinations and life events is a topic of significant clinical importance. This review discusses the extent to which auditory and visual hallucinations may be directly related to traumatic events. Evidence suggests that intrusive images occur frequently within individuals who also report hallucinatory experiences. However, there has been limited research specifically investigating the extent to which hallucinations are the re-experiencing of a traumatic event. Our current theoretical understanding of these relationships, along with methodological difficulties associated with research in this area, are considered. Recent clinical studies, which adopt interventions aimed at the symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder in people diagnosed with a psychotic disorder, are reviewed.

Since trauma arises from an inescapable stressful event that overwhelms people's coping mechanisms, it is uncertain to what degree the results of laboratory studies of ordinary events are relevant to the understanding of traumatic memories. This paper reviews the literature on differences between recollections of stressful and of traumatic events. It then reviews the evidence implicating dissociation as the central pathogenic mechanism that gives rise to posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD. A systematic exploratory study of 46 subjects with PTSD indicated that traumatic memories were retrieved, at least initially, in the form of dissociated mental imprints of sensory and affective elements of the traumatic experience: as visual, olfactory, affective, auditory, and kinesthetic experiences.

Dissociative experiences are common among children and adults, ranging from normative to pathological frequency and severity. This chapter details important aspects of dissociation following traumatic experiences, including empirical support for the trauma model of dissociation, psychobiological processes involved in dissociative experiences, and the presence of both dissociative symptomatology and dissociative disorders in patients diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Additionally, the authors discuss the complexities of conducting trauma treatment with dissociative individuals, including differential diagnosis and treatment approaches grounded in current treatment outcome research.

Dissociation, Dissociative Disorders, and PTSD

Several prominent theories of posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD posit that peritraumatic dissociation results in insufficient encoding of the trauma memory and that persistent dissociation prevents memory elaboration, resulting in memory fragmentation and PTSD. Across 16 studies to date, the association between dissociation and fragmentation was most prominent when examining peritraumatic dissociation and patient's own ratings of memory fragmentation.

Many people with post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD struggle in coping with flashbacks and dissociation, which may occur as a result of encountering triggers, that is, reminders of a traumatic event. To the extent that people are not aware of their triggers, flashbacks and dissociation can be incredibly disruptive and unpredictable events that are difficult to manage. However, you can take steps to better manage and prevent flashbacks and dissociation and stay in the present. Flashbacks are considered one of the re-experiencing symptoms of PTSD. In a flashback, you may feel or act as though a traumatic event is happening again. For example, a rape survivor, when triggered, may begin to smell certain scents or feel pain in her body similar to that which was experienced during her assault.

The Journal of Literary Theory is an international forum for debate in literary theory. JLT takes an interdisciplinary approach and is open to a broad variety of theories and methods, promoting their study, research, and development. JLT reflects the diversity of approaches put forward in literary theory. It is meant to be a platform for controversial debate and dialogue. It reaches out to disciplines dealing with theoretical foundations of the study of literature as well as to related fields of research such as musicology, art theory, and film studies as well as the sciences. Above all, the journal aims to publish work on fundamental issues in methodology and the construction of theories and concepts, as well as articles on particular literary theories. Historical case studies are accepted only if they adopt a predominantly systematic perspective, contribute to the reconstruction of the history of literary theory, or pursue innovative methods.
