Validity and reliability of the Structured Clinical Interview for Depersonalization–Derealization Spectrum (SCI-DER)
TLDR
The SCI-DER showed excellent reliability and good concurrent validity with the Dissociative Experiences Scale, and significantly discriminated subjects with any diagnosis of mood and anxiety disorders from controls and subjects with depersonalization disorder from controls.

Depersonalization in Psychiatric Patients: A Transcultural Study
There is evidence suggesting that the prevalence of depersonalization in psychiatric patients can vary across cultures. To explore the possible influence of culture on the prevalence of
Construct Validity of Three Measures of Depersonalization in Trauma-Exposed College Students by
Depersonalization is a type of dissociation characterized by feelings of unreality and detachment from one’s sense of self. Despite a history rich in clinical description, depersonalization has

The Phenomenological Stability of Depersonalization: Comparing the Old with the New
TLDR
The results suggest that the phenomenology of depersonalization has remained stable over the last 100 years and it makes sense to continue collecting as many symptoms as possible, thereby avoiding both biased selection or premature closure.
Symptom Profiles in Depersonalization and Anxiety Disorders: An Analysis of the Beck Anxiety Inventory
TLDR
Differences imply similarities between the cognitive components of DPD and anxiety disorders while physiological experiences diverge, and encourage future research looking at direct physiological measures and longitudinal designs to confirm the mechanisms underlying different clinical manifestations of anxiety.

The detection and measurement of depersonalization disorder.
TLDR
Investigating the applicability of four dissociation scales to depersonalization disorder and establishing screening criteria for the disorder found that three of the scales were fairly strongly correlated to the DES, suggesting that they may measure similar but not identical concepts, and cutoff scores are proposed for these scales also.
Toward the clarification of the construct of depersonalization and its association with affective and cognitive dysfunctions.
TLDR
Inauthenticity, the most frequent and pervasive form of depersonalization experience, was best predicted by a cognitive style featuring intense, critical examination of self and others, and was experienced somewhat infrequently by relatively few subjects.
Feeling unreal: 30 cases of DSM-III-R depersonalization disorder.
TLDR
This study supports the conceptualization of depersonalization disorder as a distinct disorder with a characteristic course that is independent of mood, anxiety, and personality symptoms, and suggests a subtle relationship may exist between childhood trauma and depersonALization disorder that merits further investigation.
Depersonalization: a conceptual history
TLDR
Depersonalization has of late become subsumed under the dissociative disorders and it is recommended that the term is used to refer only to the original core-behaviour as this has shown adequate stability.

TLDR
The Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) has been developed to offer a means of reliably measuring dissociation in normal and clinical populations and was able to distinguish between subjects with a dissociative disorder (multiple personality) and all other subjects.

TLDR
Depersonalization was related to introversion-extraversion only to the extent that extreme introversion scores were also related to anxiety, and anxiety was moderately related to depersonalized in women, less so in men.
A factor analytic study of two scales measuring dissociation.
TLDR
Factor analysis on each scale separately showed that neither the PAS nor the DES adequately measures the three dimensions hypothesized to underlie dissociative experience, and use of the scales, in their present form, should be limited to a single dimension representing disturbances in affect-control and disturbances in cognition-control if the DES is used at least with normal populations.
