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). We are comparing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which is a promising new treatment for BDD, and supportive psychotherapy (SPT), which appears to be the most widely used therapy in the community to treat BDD and related problems, such as low self-esteem or problems with family members or friends.
Adults (age18 or older):
- Have BDD.
- Live within driving distance of Providence, Rhode Island.
- Meet further qualifications for this study.
