Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)

Body Dysmorphic Disorder is characterized by an “imagined ugliness.” A person experiencing BDD is preoccupied with one or more perceived defects or flaws in their physical appearance. Important to note is that these perceived defects or flaws are not observable to others. As a consequence of the preoccupation, an individual experiencing BDD engages in repetitive behaviors (e.g., mirror checking, skin picking, excessive grooming behaviors, seeking assurance from others, etc.) or repetitive mental acts (e.g., intensely comparing his/her appearance to others) as a means of self-soothing or self-assurance. The treatment offered at CHH for BDD is Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT).
