The Nature of DPDR Dissociation – An hypothesis by Santos Barrios

I came across Santos Barrios on youtube and was so impressed. This is the first time I looked at what is going on with me from a physiological aspect.  He has a site for self healing dpdr in English and Spanish. and a youtube channel but most of his current info is in Spanish. I have tried to start his exercises but am struggling with staying present in the moment, feeling fully, and “mindfulness”.  It is just too painful to feel and I am taking it slow.  I highly recommend checking Santos Barrios out, this video I  posted is his theory… very good!

Dr. Dan Siegel has a video I found just recently that is incredible. In less than four minutes he explains the left and right hemispheres and the mindfulness – being aware – practice being present with emotions & verbalize those emotions so the left hemisphere balances the right… He explains it better… I have yet to see his other videos too.

this is a screenshot of one of her charts I found useful…

She also has a video called “Don’t Short Circuit Grief” that was excellent.

Alan Robarge- How to Heal Attachment Trauma – It Depends

Alan Robarge is a relationship coach that really gets the trauma aspect. Seriously, if you look at all the videos he made and the comments on youtube, people love him!!!  He can be a bit long on his videos but its worth listening to get the understanding he has. He explains so much and has so much empathy for us. I could list a lot of his videos here but this is the first I came across…
