Summary

Depersonalization is a dissociative disorder, causing alteration in the perception or experience of the self and a sense of detachment from reality. This is a fascinating and clinically relevant phenomenon neglected within psychiatry. Far from being a rare condition, recent research has shown chronic, persisting depersonalization to be as prevalent as schizophrenia or bipolar mood disorder.
