Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy vs. Supportive Psychotherapy for Adults With Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
The purpose of this study is to learn which of two forms of therapy is more likely to help people who have body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).

Adults (age18 or older):
- Have BDD.
- Live within driving distance of Providence, Rhode Island.
- Meet further qualifications for this study.
