Ask the Experts: Q & A Session on Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a disorder associated with significant psychosocial impact. Individuals with BDD often avoid social activities due to symptoms, may drop out of school or stop working, and may become housebound. Interpersonal relationships with loved ones and friends are often impacted negatively, and sufferers often feel isolated, guilty, and depressed. BDD is associated with high levels of impairment, hospitalization, and suicidality. Comorbidity is common and may complicate the treatment of BDD. In this presentation, the panelists and audience members will explore topics and challenges related to the experience and treatment of BDD. Patients, their families, and clinicians will have an opportunity to ask their own questions about BDD and raise issues for discussion.
