Part One: The signs and symptoms of dissociation are often misunderstood in horses and humans. The presence of dissociation undermines treatment effectiveness when it is not recognized and addressed. Presenters will discuss the importance of the clinician and equine professional being connected to their bodies in order to identify dissociation. Presenters will define dissociation, identify the types of experiences that can lead to dissociation, and why it is important to identify dissociation when it happens.
