This first person account on recovery from trauma and dissociation has been written by a social scientist who went through a long journey in mental health care before receiving adequate treatment. A steady therapeutic relationship paired with a different resources of the Comprehensive Resource Model eventually provided enough stability to overcome dissociation and process trauma. Although traditional psychotherapy is based on psychoanalytic framework, it was helpful to look for framings that affirm a social and hermeneutic dialogue. This paper provides reflections that have proven to be helpful for the author and that might be helpful for others with similar problems.
