Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a debilitating anxiety condition that keeps sufferers fixated on their imagined ugliness and, very often, trapped in their homes. People with BDD become fixated on perceived asymmetries or disproportions in their bodies, thinning hair, acne, wrinkles, scars, or ruddiness of complexion. Far from ordinary body image dissatisfaction, BDD compels sufferers to pick at their skin, undergo repeated cosmetic treatments and surgeries, and attempt to hide perceived bodily and facial defects from others. Left untreated, people with BDD may even refuse to leave the house or commit suicide because of their anxiety. Overcoming Body Dysmorphic Disorder offers BDD individuals a practical guide to the mindfulness, acceptance, and exposure and response prevention strategies that can help them overcome the disorder. Presented by lead author Fugen Neziroglu, an anxiety expert regularly featured on A&E's television show Hoarders, this comprehensive guide offers self-assessment tools and a complete cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) program for reducing the effect of BDD on sufferers' lives. Its step-by-step guidance and easy-to-follow exercises are sure to help readers with BDD move beyond their anxieties and start living with greater freedom and confidence than ever before.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"If you are struggling with BDD, you need to understand what it is and your options for dealing with it in a concise and practical way. This book will help you explore all of the major approaches that have shown to be helpful. Whether you are going into therapy or want to address this problem on your own, you will find value on every page."

--Steven C. Hayes, professor of psychology at University of Nevada, and author of "Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life "


"In this age where, sadly, so many people are unhappy with their appearance, this book becomes a close friend who completely understands all aspects of true BDD and really can help you on the road to a better life."

--Stephen Westwood, author of "Body Dysmorphic Disorder: A Memoir, "and" Suicide Junkie"


"Anyone who struggles with body dysmorphic disorder should make sure to read this book. Fugen Neziroglu has written an easy-to-read book that distills the core features of overcoming BDD."

--David Veale, MD, author of "Overcoming Body Image Problems"


"Body dysmorphic disorder can be a relentlessly tormenting disorder, too often misunderstood by even those in the mental health profession. People who have it often experience a tremendous sense of shame while living with considerable despair and hopelessness. "Overcoming Body Dysmorphic Disorder" clearly demonstrates, however, that there is in fact reason for hope. The authors have put together a carefully crafted self-help manual, complete with strategies to guide those with BDD through their recovery. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, ACT, and task concentration skills are all thoroughly explored in an effective, easy-to-read manner that is useful for patients and therapists alike."

--Scott M. Granet, LCSW, director at the OCD-BDD Clinic of Northern California


""Overcoming Body Dysmorphic Disorder" is more than a book; it is a must-have companion for anyone ready for life after BDD. Whether you are suffering in silence or already working with a licensed therapist, this book will assist you in your recovery. The compassionate authors offer a holistic approach, tackling BDD from every angle and providing easy-to-follow, effective exercises to improve your quality of life and defeat BDD. What I love most about this book is it offers solutions."
