Dissociative disorders

Dissociative disorders can arise in connection with psychological stress and in the aftermath of traumatic experiences and can manifest themselves in many ways: For example, there may be a splitting off of consciousness and/or memory contents as well as possibly altered sensations of pain, rigidity of movement or involuntary movements. Since some of these phenomena resemble neurological symptoms (e.g. epileptic seizures), it often takes a long time before the symptoms are correctly classified and psychiatric treatment is initiated. Our consultation hour for dissociative disorders is an offer for diagnostic classification from a psychiatric point of view and for counselling or mediation of specific therapy options.

Appointments are made via the outpatient clinic secretariat (Ms Manuela Hanke and Ms Katrin Hinsching: Tel.: +49 228 287-15732, Email: )

The consultation is conducted by Dr. Max Pensel, Resident in Psychiatry & Specialist in Neurology, and supervised by Dr. Ulrike Schmidt.
