An ordinary memory sits like a photograph in a family album. It’s always available to visit by thumbing through the album. A trauma memory is not pasted into the photo album; like getting lost in the attic of our mind, it goes into the unconscious. Dissociation happens when a trauma memory becomes a photo ripped into pieces and scattered across the attic floor. Join us as we learn about a powerful novel that has taken the dry discussion of trauma memories and dissociation and turned it into a powerful and moving experience of a young girl’s journey and struggle with dissociation.
