Find therapists that can help with Depersonalization/derealization disorder

Depersonalization/derealization disorder (DP/DR) is a dissociative disorder that is characterized by feelings of detachment or disconnection from one's self or surroundings. People with DP/DR may feel as though they are observing their thoughts, feelings, or actions from outside their body or that their environment is unreal or dream-like. These experiences can be distressing and interfere with daily functioning. Therapy, such as CBT and psychodynamic therapy, can effectively treat DP/DR by identifying negative thought patterns and exploring unconscious conflicts. With proper support and treatment, individuals with DP/DR can improve their symptoms and quality of life.
