Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is
defined as a preoccupation with a perceived defect(s) or
flaw(s) in physical appearance that is not observable or appears
slight to others.
In this second module of our
two-part series on BDD, we will begin by considering
diagnosis. We will then explore the current treatments
available for BDD, with a specific focus on cognitive-behaviour
therapy (CBT), and we will finish by examining
the role of cosmetic surgery.
We will also present the case
history of a patient named ‘John’, and throughout the module you
will be given the opportunity to clinically reflect on the issues
pertinent to this case.
