I have seen about 25 therapists in the last 10 years and none of them really knew about DPDR. Some knew about it but only associated it with anxiety and wanted to treat that supposed anxiety. I did have a lot of anxiety 10 years ago, it reduced really a lot but my DR stayed exactly the same, but treating the anxiety still does seem to help a lot of people.
Some therapists did help me though, but not directly about DR, but other surrounding problems, that I hope are related to my DR.
About dealing with the fear of DPDR and the false beliefs around it that could cause a vicious cycle, I guess cognitive behavioral therapy might help, and maybe they wouldn't need to be very familiar with DPDR itself because CBT is kind of the same technique applied to a lot of problems.
