Typology of the depersonalisation disorders


The aim of the investigation was to study the phenomenon of depersonalization in the aspect of its typological character and determining the factors that lead to forming of its certain types.46 patients aged from 17 to 36 were examined. As the result of psychopatological analysis 3 types of depersonalization were established; sensory (coenesthetical), imagery(dissociative) and ideatory(reflexive). Each of the established types coexisted with certain set of other psychopatological phenomena and personality disorders. The fact of the existence of these correlations gives the possibility to suggest that forming of the established types of depersonalization is connected with the personal features of the patients and the types of depersonalization reflect the level of the impairment of self-consciousness .
