Description

Characterized by tormenting obsessions associated with physical appearance and time-consuming compulsive behaviors, body dysmorphic disorder is considered to be quite similar to OCD, and as such is included in the DSM 5 in the new classification, Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders. Several million people in this country are believed to have BDD, though most sufferers first pursue medical treatment to correct the perceived flaw in their appearance, rather than seeking more appropriate psychiatric care. Any body part can be the focus of BDD, though most with the disorder will focus on fears associated with facial features, such as hair, nose, or skin. Complicating the clinical picture is the fact that approximately half of those with BDD may become delusional at times, and as many as 25%-30% may make suicide attempts.
The primary purpose of this workshop is to familiarize attendees with the diagnosis of BDD, to review cognitive and behavioral manifestations of it, and to thoroughly explore forms of treatment. Specifically, medication, cognitive therapy, as well as behavior therapy in the form of exposure and response prevention will be highlighted. Considerations for differential diagnosis, comorbid disorders, and resources for support will also be addressed.

Objectives

Treatment
