Psyche Dissociative Amensia vs Repression

hey guy how are you all doing.

Really confused in here hope somebody could help me

Dissociative amnesia: ¨unable to recall important and often emotionally charged memories¨

Repression: forgetting stressful events without being aware of it

so whats the difference?

LOLZ. long term dissociative amnesia is repression. how about that ?

dis amnesia refer to thought "blocking "...for eg. doctor forgets name of diagnosis of patient just because of thought blocking
and
repression means unconscious forgetting of remote past for eg. on asking patient if she was ever raped and her response is no and records say yes , her response may be just due to repression and not lying per say. that i understand.
