OVERCOMING BARRIERS TO BDD TREATMENT: OVERCOMING TRIVIALIZATION OF BDD

OVERCOMING BARRIERS TO BDD TREATMENT: OVERCOMING TRIVIALIZATION OF BDD
It’s easy to trivialize BDD. Why should she care so much about how she looks? The fact that the person looks okay only compounds the problem. It may lead to reassurance—don’t worry, you look fine—rather than effective treatment. Sometimes BDD is mistaken for vanity. For BDD to be diagnosed and adequately treated, family members and clinicians need to take the symptoms seriously; BDD must be recognized as a serious psychiatric disorder that can cause severe suffering.
What To Do: I hope that after reading this book, you’re convinced that BDD is a serious disorder. If you want someone else in your life to take it seriously, you can talk with him or her about it. Or, you may want them to read this book; many people tell me this has helped other people understand BDD and realize that it’s bona fide disorder and a serious problem.
