What is depersonalization disorder?

Depersonalization/ derealization is a dissociative disorder, defined in the DSM-IV as “persistent or recurrent experiences of feeling detached from, and as if one is an outside observer of, one’s mental processes or body.

‘feeling like one is in a dream’

Thus it is the experience of feeling a detachment from their sense of selves and their reality (depersonalization), or their perception of the world (derealization).

It is characterised by emotional numbness and a disruption in self-awareness.
