Dissociative Identity Disorder
Olga Trujillo was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder) at the age of 31. Over the past 20 years she has undergone an intense journey to understand what Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is, how she developed it, the impact on her life, and she began to address the challenges she faced in healing. In 2011 Olga’s memoir, The Sum of My Parts: A Survivor’s Story of Dissociative Identity Disorder was released by New Harbinger Publications. In this workshop, she will bring her experience of DID to help participants expand their knowledge from an inside out perspective. Participants will explore what the healing process from DID can look like. We’ll examine trust building, psycho-social therapy, addressing other mental health disorders while healing from DID, and other related topics.
The Impact of Physical and Sexual Violence: A Personal Journey Revealed
Olga Trujillo watched as her father abused her mother for years. As she was drawn into his abuse of her mother she was also sexually abused by her father and brothers. Ms. Trujillo, now an attorney, advocate and author, underwent a journey to understand the impact the violence she witnessed and endured – from the child abuse to rapes she suffered as an adolescent and young adult – had on her life. In this presentation she reveals what she has learned so far and although tragic, her story of survival is inspiring and hopeful. She shows how each person can and does make a difference in the lives of others.
