Presenting an effective treatment approach specifically tailored to the unique challenges of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), this book is grounded in state-of-the-art research. The authors are experts on BDD and related conditions. They describe ways to engage patients who believe they have defects or flaws in their appearance. Provided are clear-cut strategies for helping patients overcome the self-defeating thoughts, impairments in functioning, and sometimes dangerous ritualistic behaviors that characterize BDD. Clinician-friendly features include step-by-step instructions for conducting each session and more than 50 reproducible handouts and forms; the large-size format facilitates photocopying.

Reviews

"BDD entails substantial suffering and requires skilled therapeutic intervention. This unique treatment manual lives up to the stellar reputations of Wilhelm, Phillips, and Steketee. Their systematic treatment is science based, clinically informed, and practitioner friendly. The manual is generous in its provision of reproducible handouts and assessment tools, and it wisely guides therapy that is tailored to the individual client's needs."--Thomas F. Cash, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), Old Dominion University "Wilhelm, Phillips, and Steketee are among a small handful of internationally recognized authorities on the etiology and treatment of BDD and related conditions. It is next to impossible to think of a better qualified group of authors for this definitive treatment manual."--David B. Sarwer, PhD, Departments of Psychiatry and Surgery, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania "BDD is a common and often crippling psychiatric disorder, yet too frequently it is not diagnosed or not competently treated. This book fills a critical niche by providing concrete, hands-on guidance for conducting state-of-the-art cognitive-behavioral therapy for BDD. The guidelines in this book will be accessible and useful for a wide range of readers, from students just beginning their training in behavioral therapies to seasoned professionals who are already experienced with BDD. An invaluable addition to the field."--Harrison G. Pope Jr., MD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School "This essential, richly detailed guide is written at a level of specificity that will enable even the clinician new to working with BDD to be comfortable implementing the strategies. The manual also provides a concise review of the scientific basis for the approach. All clinicians who treat patients with BDD or other clinically meaningful body image disturbances now have a go-to guide to add to their clinical bookshelves."--J. Kevin Thompson, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida "Helping patients accept that their problem is psychological rather than medical is a daunting prospect that is at the heart of treatment for BDD. This book encapsulates the wisdom from extensive clinical experience. It provides the therapist with an evidence-based map for navigating the challenges of this disorder, and has relevance for treating other obsessive-compulsive problems as well."--Janet Treasure, PhD, FRCP, FRCPsych, Director, Eating Disorders Research Unit, Kings College London, United Kingdom
