In this episode, I talked with Robyn Stern, a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in treating Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). She was formally diagnosed with BDD when she was 22 years after several years of not knowing what was going on. In this episode, we discuss..
– her misdiagnosis of anxiety and depression and how this often happens for people who have BDD
– the ways in which BDD overlaps yet is very different from related conditions, like Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
– the treatment for BDD and ways that people can get help
