Reviews

'The Parents' Guide to Body Dysmorphic Disorder is an invaluable, in-depth and practical resource for anyone wishing to understand and support someone with BDD. Complex psychological concepts are made accessible and brought to life through real experiences and comments, alongside expert opinion. I am pleased to have this much awaited addition to the literature to be able to offer care to the carers.'
