Description

The elevated rate of psychotic symptoms in isolated, inner-city Black populations is well established. This presentation will review the available evidence that this amplification in psychosis-like symptoms is mediated by childhood trauma, disorganized attachment, and social defeat. These three variables combine in early childhood to create a pattern of dissociative coping strategies. Undiagnosed dissociative spectrum illness is mediating the increased rate of psychosis-like symptoms in these disadvantaged, minority communities. Case material will be used to highlight this phenomenon. This video is available to BIPOC clinicians free of charge. Please email info@nesttd-online.org for more information.
