September's Meeting- Body Dysmorphia Disorder (BDD)

Claira (Chair Volunteer)
Member Admin

Thanks to those who came to this month's meeting. Our volunteer gave a talk on Body Dysmorphia Disorder (BDD) including what it is, her own experiences of BDD and also what it was like to have Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for this! The similarities with OCD were discussed including how there is often a lot of perfectionism and behaviours such as checking and reassurance- seeking! Here is a link with some further info on BDD- https://www.cci.health.wa.gov.au/~/media/CCI/Mental-Health-Professionals/BDD/Information-Sheets/What-is-Body-Dysmorphic-Disorder.pdf

We would love to hear your experiences of BDD and any links with OCD!
