In Face to Face with Body Dysmorphic Disorder, BDD expert Arie Winograd shares his unique insights as a psychotherapist who has spent thousands of hours treating patients with this uniquely complex disorder. By specifically focusing on the patient-clinician relationship and exploring treatment options beyond the cognitive behavioral model, this groundbreaking new text offers a new perspective designed to help practitioners truly understand the emotional inner-workings of the BDD client, and in turn, how to genuinely connect with them in order to facilitate recovery. Also included are two chapters written by former BDD sufferers chronicling their personal struggles with the disorder.
