How to use "Dissociative" in context?

"dissociative" is a term that is used to describe disorders that disrupt communication or the sense of identity within a person or group. Dissociative disorders can be broadly classified as traumatic, numbing and anoxia, and dissociative symptoms are common among patients with certain mental illnesses.

Trauma can lead to dissociation in which a person loses sense of their surroundings and time. This can create a feeling of disconnection from the outside world and from one's own body, feelings which can be overwhelming and frightening.
