We recently published the worlds first trial of Internet-based CBT for body dysmorphic disorder. A vast majority (82%) of the patients were responders and the treatment was deemed highly acceptable. Results were sustained at the 3-month follow-up.
As the results from the pilot trial were really promising we are moving on to conduct a RCT.

One thought on “Internet-based CBT for Body Dysmorphic Disorder!”
Nice! Very encouraging study, decreasing the treatment barrier with only 10 therapist minutes per week. I wonder if the initial face-to-face helped with patient follow-through? Looking forward to the RCT.
