Exposure Therapy for BDD: An Interactive Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As with OCD, exposure and response prevention therapy is widely recognized as a vital part of the treatment for BDD. This workshop will be presented by four people who know this process intimately, as all have lived with BDD and have faced the many challenges that exposure therapy can offer. Attendees will become familiar with how ERP works with BDD, and also have the opportunity to practice it during the workshop, if they are interested in doing so. Effective techniques and potential pitfalls will be reviewed in depth, as will the hazards and benefits associated with the use of social media.
