In the modern era we have now come to understand voices, visions and other alternative realities, or 'psychosis', as commonly a response to trauma and adversity and not a biological disease. As this understanding has developed we now know that dissociation is an innate stress response, in the same vein as fight or flight - especially when a person is faced with threat of others.

This is exciting as it means people are surviving and overcoming trauma and can make sense of their realities as real and meaningful in recovery from distress.
