Cognitive Behaviour Therapy addresses the patterns of thinking that are associated with one’s behaviour and offers a range of techniques and strategies to change these negative thought processes.
The therapy involves reducing avoidances, safety behaviours and symptom monitoring.
CBT sessions are completed with a psychologist or therapist.
Research for CBT as a treatment for depersonalization has shown some positive, though limited results.
CBT as a treatment for depersonalization disorder
- 21 patients with DPD were treated individually with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
- Significant improvements in patient-defined measures of DP/DR severity as well as standardised measures of dissociation, depression, anxiety and general functioning were found at post-treatment and six-months follow-up.
- 29% of participants no longer met criteria for DPD at the end of therapy.
