Understanding Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Katharine A. Phillips

Using stories and interviews to show the many different behaviors and symptoms of BDD, and providing a quick self-assessment questionnaire, Dr. Phillips helps readers distinguish between normal concern with appearance and the obsession of BDD. She then guides readers through the basics of the disorder and through the many treatment options that work and don't work. Drawing on her years of clinical practice, scientific research, and professional evaluations of over 700 patients, she offers the best possible advice available. The result is a literally lifesaving handbook for sufferers and their families.
