Demystifying and Treating Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
This workshop, taking place at the Multi-Service Eating Disorder Association (MEDA) annual conference, is designed to educate clinicians about the complexities of working with clients with BDD. We will discuss how to assess for BDD, how it overlaps with eating disorders, why individuals develop the disorder, and evidence based treatments for BDD. In addition, we will discuss both overt and subtle safety and treatment interfering behaviors which contribute to and maintain the disorder. A case presentation, as well as hands on exercises and exposures will be incorporated into the workshop.
