German to English translations [PRO] Medical - Psychology / Child abuse
German term or phrase:abspalten
Der Missbrauch führt aber nicht selten auch zu psychischen Auffälligkeiten und Störungen (z. B. Ängste, Depressionen, Abspalten von Gefühlen).
I have the feeling there must be a medical term for this "abspalten von Gefühlen" and therefore do not wish to translate it literally. Thanks for any help.
