Feeling Unreal: Depersonalization Disorder and the Loss of the Self

depersonalization disorder book

Feeling Unreal: Depersonalization Disorder and the Loss of the Self, is available to buy at Mental Health Books.

The experience of depersonalization disorder has been described by many sufferers and clinicians as almost akin to “living in a dream”. Symptoms include a sense of going through life without actually experiencing it, and a sense of detachment from body, life and reality. Often this is onset by long-term emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse.

This book offers a comprehensive resource for the disorder, for patients, loved ones and mental health professionals alike. It presents an overview of the latest research, as well as retrospective perspectives on how “depersonalization” has been represented in a historical context. It does not offer a cure, but it does cover possible treatment solutions, and practical tips on how to maximize life experiences despite feeling detached from the process.

Perceived by many to be the first truly comprehensive book written exclusively about depersonalization in English, this book is regarded both as a milestone in psychiatric literature, and an excellent user handbook and resource.
