I have not taken a look at this new publication, but it looks like a good self-help book for DP sufferers. “Acceptance” and a Buddhist approach to “living in the moment” complement a holistic approach to living with DP. All brain disorders need to be treated on all levels from medications to behavioral therapy to self-care strategies. Try whatever works best for you.
Overcoming Depersonalization Disorder can help you diagnose the type and degree of your depersonalization disorder, come to understand why it developed, and cope with your symptoms using practical skills drawn from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). Ready to feel real again? Put the practical skills in this book to work in your life right now and start reintegrating yourself back into the world and reconnecting to your own vibrant thoughts and feelings.

A bold, yet wise approach... [that] can fundamentally change the life direction of people struggling with this debilitating disorder. Highly recommended.

- Steven C. Hayes, Ph.D., Foundation Professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada and author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life

This approach may not be applicable to everyone, but it is yet another tool in our arsenal to fight this disorder. I am just thrilled there is yet another book on our “neglected syndrome.”
