Feeling Unreal is the first book to reveal what depersonalization disorder is all about. This important volume explores not only depersonalization, but the philosophical and literary implications of selflessness as well, while providing the latest research, possible treatments, and strategies for living and thriving when life seems 'unreal.' For those who still believe that such experiences are still a part of something else, that depersonalization is just a symptom and not a disorder in its own right, Feeling Unreal presents compelling evidence to the contrary. This book provides long-awaited answers for people suffering from depersonalization disorder and their loved ones, for mental health professionals, and for all students of the condition, while serving as a wake up call to the medical community at large.

Feeling Unreal will be the definitive work on depersonalization disorder (DPD) for the foreseeable future. Dr. Simeon is by far the leading expert on DPD in North America. In this book she and Mr. Abugel provide a thorough, readable explanation of the disorder that covers all aspects of symptoms and treatment. * Colin A. Ross, MD, Past President, The International Society for the Study of Dissociation * The authors are to be congratulated for a timely and highly relevant contribution that fills an unjustified gap in the psychiatric literature. As such, it is destined to become a classic in the field. * Psychological Medicine * A long overdue and extremely welcome corrective to a major gap in the literature on psychopathology. * PsycCRITIQUES *
