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.'

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"...Poignant accounts of depersonalization disorder can be found in Feeling Unreal: Depersonalization Disorder and the Loss of the Self. The comprehensive work by Simeon and Abugel consolidates over a century of research and philosophy on the enigmatic disorder. The result is a compelling and informative resource, equally relevant for mental health professionals and laypeople interested in the mysteries of the human psyche."--Journal of the Neurological Sciences
