What is Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)? It’s a disorder of great distress about one’s physical appearance, with tormenting obsessions and compulsions. It results in anxiety and depression that greatly affect daily life, and can often be disabling.

BDD affects between 5 and 10 million people in the U.S., and yet it is both misunderstood and under-diagnosed.
This webinar will focus on:

  • Defining Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
  • Understanding the risk factors 
  • Reviewing effective treatment strategies

The ultimate goal of our webinar is that you will come away with a sense of hope that recovery from BDD is in fact possible.
