Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is one of the somatoform disorders. It is defined as a preoccupation with an imagined defect in ones appearance, where the persons concern is markedly excessive. They may spend many hours a day checking mirrors or comparing themselves to others, and often have needless dermatological treatment or cosmetic surgery - sometimes performed by themselves. Diagnosis is usually slow and treatment frequently inappropriate. This book is a treatment manual for BDD using cognitive behaviour therapy and contains a chapter on pharmacotherapy. Detailed client handouts and information will make it accessible to a wide range of professionals.

?Overall my impression of this book is that it is a very useful resource to add to my clinician?s catalogue of materials to use when treating patients with BDD.? (British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies, 1 October 2012) "Few clinicians in the world are as experienced as Drs Veale and Neziroglu in the effective treatment of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Their comprehensive book transcends the typical treatment manual. It provides an impressively science-driven understanding of BDD, as well as a richly detailed protocol for practitioners. The wisdom and guidance in this book can significantly aid in alleviating the personal suffering that BDD brings." ?Thomas F. Cash, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Old Dominion University, USA, and author of The Body Image Workbook, Second Edition (2008)
