Development of a Cognitive Behavioral Mobile App for Body Dysmorphic Disorder
PI: Sabine Wilhelm, Ph.D.
The purpose of this study is to pilot test cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) delivered through a Smartphone application (“app”). We hope this new technology-delivered treatment will help increase access to CBT for BDD. Study participants complete the app-based CBT on their Smartphone, as part of a pilot trial.
We are seeking individuals age 18 or older with body image concerns. Participation includes: clinical interviews and assessments, questionnaires, and use of the treatment app on your Smartphone. Compensation is provided.
