Like say you're out partying and the person just freezes and stands still and is non responsive for a minute or so. Is it dissociation? This person has had a psychosis, I may add but its over with since a year. She's had a depression that lead to psychosis and is highly social but lives with her father and has never been in a relationship or lived on her own. She has a very dominant personality and is very insecure.
Doesnt sounds quite like dissociation. However, there are forms of epilepsy that make people do this. A friend of mine did this frequently as a kid/young adult. She had epilepsy and would suddenly freeze, sometimes for a moment, sometimes for several minutes.
She has had issues with psychosis in recent years as well.
I would take her to a doctor though. Epilepsy is treatable, as is dissociative disorder, psychosis and depression. But she will need a doctor to help figure out what's going on.
