Definition depersonalization and derealization update
Hi sufferers of Depersonalization and Derealisation disorder,
Having treated DP/DR now for several years, Ive worked on definition, and shot 3 videos on definition and understanding. Here are they.
Now, i want to submit another important idea on what it is:
DP/DR is psychological decompensation of the personality.
Psychological of psychiatric decompensation is the functional deterioration of a previously working structure or system. Decompensation may occur due to stressors like trauma, threat, extreme stress, threat from recreations drugs, illness, etc. Normally coping mechanisms work, meaning you can compensate for stress, trauma, threat, etc. and function despite stressors. Decompensation means breaks down, and with DP/DR the greatest breakdown is seen in the breakdown of self confidence and distrust of your own mind, as well as a distrust of your own senses. Decompensation is a general term commonly used in medicine to describe a variety of breakdown situations, like that of the heart.
Yes, the therapy and training I offer as a cure takes care to cure to decompensation, and strengthen the personality.
