Nowadays, the present social context undergoes processes of disaggregation and fragmentation, hence appear insistent requests to cooperate, recompose, build bonds and promote social cohesion. The authors, in this article, put forward the hypothesis that "integration" and "dissociation" simply coexist and thus they suggest studying "dissociation" as the less recognized facet of social dynamics. "Dissociation" as a process, in relational and micro-social contexts, generates subjective implications and diverse outcomes: i.e. avoidance and escaping reality on the one hand, on the other detachment, novel points of view, self-discovery, new spaces for freedom and self-realization. In local administrations and social or health services - all organizations pressed by the imperatives of maximizing efficiency - the spread of information technologies and the generalized utilization of algorithms can reinforce the propensity to comply with a dominant culture that tends to dissociate from reality. However, these technologies can also trigger dissociations that stimulate the quest for new settings and organizational experiments. On a subjective level, it is useful to differentiate ‘being dissociated’ from ‘dissociating’. The first notion describes a passive mode inducing withdrawal, compulsion and guilt. The second activates ‘thoughts that act’, or ‘actions that think and recognize dysfunctional states’. Choices, omissions, evidences and intolerances can subsequently be reassessed. Experienced loneliness can also lead to a sort of liberation from a cover previously considered indispensable. The dynamics present in dissociation are connected to the inter-subjective processes by which changes are lived. They shed light on the implications that shape desired changes or paradigm shifts. These dynamics might help in comprehending the behavior and attitudes of digital young people as a pursuit of innovative social recompositions.
