Dr Amita Jassi and Dr Benedetta Monzani – Body Dysmorphic Disorder in Young People: Recognition, assessment and treatment- Hosted at the University of Reading


1 day workshop presented by Dr Amita Jassi and Dr Benedetta Monzani.

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a debilitating condition, characterised by intense distress and preoccupation with imagined or slight flaws in appearance. Symptoms typically emerge in adolescence and can include time-consuming repetitive behaviors (e.g. grooming rituals, mirror checking, reassurance seeking) and marked avoidance. BDD in young people often results in major functional impairment, reduced academic performance and school withdrawal. It is associated with high rates of comorbidity, particularly major depression, and a significant proportion of young people (21-44%) attempt suicide. The aim of the workshop will be to provide up to date knowledge and skills in evidence-based assessment and intervention for children and adolescents with BDD. The emphasis of the day will be on recognising and assessing BDD and learning the CBT strategies which are currently viewed as best practice.
