Support Groups

  • The Interpersonal BDD support group has been together since April 2003 and was originally called Accurate Reflections. It is intended for individuals who are further along in their recovery from body dysmorphic disorder and are ready to address issues beyond immediate BDD symptoms. These include issues which are applicable to many BDD patients including difficulty with trust, intimacy, and similar interpersonal related material. It is meant as an adjunct to individual BDD treatment, not a replacement for it. We require a minimum of 6-7 months of individual therapy for BDD symptoms prior to joining the group; all attendees must have received therapy from a clinician at the Los Angeles BDD & Body Image Clinic. All group members have body dysmorphic disorder as a primary diagnosis.
