MisOrdered: The Human Spectrum is a paradigm shift for human health. Moving beyond mental health, Misordered works to understand humans within the context of development and adaptation to work toward an acceptance of our authentic selves.
Ashley Ray developed Misordered throughout years as a clinical practitioner, including assessment and higher education. Their work has been focused in studies of human
development, human sexuality, and child and family structures. Ashley works from a sociological/anthropological framework in understanding how we develop and sense the world around and within us.
Misordered allows our beings to be conceptualized through the many aspects that impact who we are and how we connect. Ashley believes that most of us are not disordered, rather that we have developed adaptive coping skills for survival in our unique personal realities. Exploring how these skills can be useful in our current lives instead of diseases from which we disconnect ourselves - allows one to reconcile and incorporate one’s abilities to work toward a more genuine life.
