Product Description


'Millions of people suffer from body image concerns. Some are paralyzed by them. Here, Dr. Sabine Wilhelm offers a systematic, scientifically based program of self-treatment. For many, this will be a welcome alternative to expensive professional therapy.' "- Harrison G. Pope Jr., MD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; coauthor of The Adonis Complex"" " 'Until now, very little self-help material was available on body dysmorphic disorder, a distressing condition that can lead sufferers to depression, unneccesary cosmetic surgery, and even suicide. If you are struggling with body image problems or care for someone who is, this excellent book offers very helpful guidance.' -" David Veale, MD, FRCPsych, Consultant Psychiatrist in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, London, UK "

HASH(0xa7511ac8) out of 5 stars New hope for those with BDD Aug. 23 2006
By Scott M. Granet - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found Sabine Wilhelm's book to be both easy to read and very informative. The step by step approach detailed in the book is exactly what is needed for patients and clinicians alike. I have enthusiastically been recommending it to all of my clients who have BDD, and to colleagues interested in learning more about it. This book offers new hope to the millions of people worldwide who live with this troubling, but treatable disorder.

HASH(0xa7511b1c) out of 5 stars I'm Impressed! Jan. 11 2011
By The Gerrrrrbs - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just started this book and I haven't completed it yet, I'm extremely impressed already. This book is a powerful resource. It is well written and it works! It was written for us folks with small/large body image dilemmas (mostly non-eating disorders).

It can be used as a self help resource or in conjunction with therapy. It can even be given to your therapist as a resource for them to help you. I struggle with acne scars and I am relieved to find the first pages (and subsequent pages) directly address this issue.

This book gives hope and help. I can't say enough positive about this book. It is life-changing.

God bless the author

By anne marie sarutto - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A book that uses cognitive behavioural therapy as a process to
deal with body imperfections. This volume deals with perceptions
or misperceptions of the troubling areas of appearance and how
we are affected by them in thought and emotion. Steps are given
for identifying problem areas and use of therapy to treat appearance

this is a great book! the discussion of CBT is inestimable. It is useful even if you don't have BDD -- Body Dysmorphic Disorder. Dr. Wilhelm is a nice person.

HASH(0xa7511edc) out of 5 stars Just finished it! Dec 26 2012
By Sally Massachusetts - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was great! I suggest reading it through, but then re-reading the chapters that are "work". You have some homework in this book which is great to help you get through your body image issues, however, the con I really saw in this book was Sabine's way of labeling you. She teaches you how to move away from that yourself, but she mentions Body Dismorphic Disorder so many times and kind of pushes it on you to make you feel you too have it. Even though yoyu may or may not, it doesn't make you feel any better. I wish she never labeled you with a problem, rather just stated that you struggle with your image. I think she could be a little less clinical, but the book was well written and could be tremendously helpful. Read, then go back.
