Exposure Therapy for BDD: An Interactive Workshop for People with BDD, their Families and Clinicians

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

Throughout this conference weekend, attendees will be offered many opportunities to learn about the treatment of choice for OCD: Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Challenging? Anxiety provoking? Stressful? Yes, those words are often used to describe the process, but so are rewarding, life-changing, and transformative. In this workshop, the role of exposure therapy will be discussed specifically as it relates to the treatment of BDD. While the presenters will provide a brief overview of how it works, the primary focus will be on experiential learning. Participants will be strongly encouraged to participate, whether they have BDD or are helping someone who does. This will all take place in an environment that is both supportive and respectful.
