What would you do for a patient who is experiencing dissociation/feeling of dreaming rather than reality? Other than the priority of keeping them safe. Do you only re-orient them to reality and help them figure out ways to cope with stress? Is it only caused from stress or is there some sort of pathophysiology behind it?
I am just curious what you do for them. This isn't a real situation or anything, just trying to figure out what you do.

This is a really interesting discussion, I have picked up some tips also.
In the past I had a couple patients with dissociation and reoriented them to their evironment, but I have never thought of having a structure such as the one suggested above - it is really easy to use and I will treasure it for the future.
Thanks a lot!
