I want to pass on a resource for those with dissociative disorders that was shared with me recently. Healing Together: An Educational and Support Conference on D.I.D. is being organized by An Infinite Mind.
An Infinite Mind is an organization “dedicated to educating the public and professional community about trauma based dissociation with a primary focus on Dissociative Identity Disorder in an effort to dispel the myths and stigmas attached to it.” As part of their education and advocacy mission they are organizing a conference for those with dissociative disorders, their allies and mental health professionals.
Here is their announcement and call for submissions:
An Infinite Mind is proud to announce our first annual Healing Together Conference; an educational and support conference on DID.
Healing Together will be held in beautiful Lake Buena Vista, FL on February 5-6, 2011. Escape the winter blues and come to sunny Florida for an amazing weekend of learning, healing, and fun.
