An Open Trial of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Pediatric Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Focus of Study: 

Do you hate the way any part(s) of your body (for example, your skin, hair, nose, eyes) look?
Do you think about the way you look for more than 1 hour per day?
Do you spend time checking the way you look, or trying to hide or fix your appearance (for
example, checking your looks in a mirror, comparing yourself to others, spending a lot of time
fixing your appearance)?

If you answered yes to any of these questions and live in the Boston area, we may be able to help.

The Body Dysmorphic Disorder Clinic at Massachusetts General Hospital is conducting a no-cost clinical trial with adolescents who are worried about how they look. Those qualified will receive a diagnostic evaluation and information on treatment options at no cost.
