Summary "Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a debilitating anxiety condition that keeps sufferers fixated on their imagined ugliness and, very often, trapped in their homes. People with BDD become fixated on perceived asymmetries or disproportions in their bodies, thinning hair, acne, wrinkles, scars, or ruddiness of complexion. Far from ordinary body image dissatisfaction, BDD compels sufferers to pick at their skin, undergo repeated cosmetic treatments and surgeries, and attempt to hide perceived bodily and facial defects from others. Left untreated, people with BDD may even refuse to leave the house or commit suicide because of their anxiety"-- Provided by publisher.
"Overcoming Body Dysmorphic Disorder offers BDD individuals a practical guide to the mindfulness, acceptance, and exposure and response prevention strategies that can help them overcome the disorder. Presented by lead author Fugen Neziroglu, an anxiety expert regularly featured on A&E's television show Hoarders, this comprehensive guide offers self-assessment tools and a complete cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) program for reducing the effect of BDD on sufferers' lives. Its step-by-step guidance and easy-to-follow exercises are sure to help readers with BDD move beyond their anxieties and start living with greater freedom and confidence than ever before"-- Provided by publisher.
