Fugen Neziroglu is a board certified behavioural/ cognitive and clinical psychologist involved in the research and treatment of anxiety disorders and obsessive compulsive spectrum disorders. She is Clinical Director of the Bio-Behavioral Institute in Great Neck, NY, USA; Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Hofstra University in Long Island, NY; and Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at New York University.

She is on the scientific advisory board of the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation.

Being dissatisfied with one's appearance is normal, but Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is something different. Someone with BDD is preoccupied with their appearance, is excessively self-conscious and experiences marked distress as a result. As a group, individuals with BDD have high rates of suicide, psychiatric hospitalisation and unemployment. They are often housebound or socially isolated and have great difficulties with relationships.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder: A Treatment Manual is the first to provide both an overview of the current knowledge of BDD and a framework for appropriate treatment of the condition using cognitive behaviour therapy and medication. Owing to a lack of research, BDD is often misdiagnosed and treated inappropriately. Patients frequently mask their main condition and present with symptoms of depression, social phobia, or obsessive-compulsive disorder, resulting in treatment with misdirected therapies and inappropriate anti-psychotic medication.

Ideal for practitioners in clinical psychology, psychiatry and medicine, Body Dysmorphic Disorder: A Treatment Manual furthers our understanding of the condition and provides practical advice on its assessment and treatment.
