Pressestimmen

Dr. Phillips' book is a landmark in the recognition and treatment of imagined uglyness. This book. beautifully written, provides a great deal of hope for patients with body dysmorphic disorder and their family members and should help speed recovery for countless sufferers of this common, fascinating, and disabling illness. Eric Hollander MD, Professor of Psychiatry, USA

Synopsis

Jane is an attractive woman in her mid-thirties, tall, thin, and stately. She believes she is breathtakingly ugly. Tormented by what she sees as her huge nose, crooked lip, big jaw, fat buttocks, and tiny breasts, she has not left her house in six years. Though she lives in the same house as her mother, she once went two years without seeing her. When relatives come over, she avoids them, staying up on the third floor of the house, even on Thanksgiving. The one time she left the house--forced to see a doctor--she covered her face with bandages. Eventually, she attempted suicide. "I can't imagine any suffering greater than this. If I had a choice, I'd rather be blind or have my arms cut off. I'd be happy to have cancer." Jane has body dysmorphic disorder, or BDD. In The Broken Mirror, Dr. Katharine Phillips draws on years of clinical practice and detailed interviews with over 200 patients to bring readers the first book on this debilitating disease, in which sufferers are obsessed by perceived flaws in their appearance.

Phillips describes severe cases, such as Jane's, but also a multitude of milder cases, such as Carl, a successful lawyer who uses his work to distract him from his supposedly thinning hair, yet says that he thinks about it constantly. Many sufferers are able to function very well in society, but remain secretly obsessed by their "hideous acne" or "horrible nose," sneaking constant peeks at a pocket mirror, or spend hours at a time redoing makeup. According to Phillips' research, BDD afflicts approximately 2 per cent of the population, or nearly 5 million people. It is not an uncommon disorder, simply a hidden one, since sufferers are often embarrassed to tell even their closest friends about their concerns: one woman, after fifty years of marriage, still felt too uncomfortable to reveal her preoccupation to her husband. Besides the fascinating story of the disease itself, The Broken Mirror is also a literally lifesaving handbook for sufferers, their families, and their doctors. Left untreated, the torment of BDD can lead to psychiatric hospitalization and sometimes suicide. With treatment, many sufferers are able to lead normal lives.

Phillips provides a quick self-assessment questionnaire, helping readers distinguish between normal concern with appearance and the obsession of BDD to determine whether they or someone they know have BDD. She includes warning signs for dermatologists and plastic surgeons, since they are the medical professionals who see BDD sufferers most often as they continually seek to "fix" their looks. Other chapters outline effective treatments for BDD using drugs and cognitive-behavioral therapy, answering often-asked questions about treatments. Finally, Phillips includes a chapter aimed at the friends and families of BDD sufferers. Profoundly affected by the disease themselves, since sufferers often refuse to attend weddings and other family events, or constantly ask loved ones for reassurance about their looks, those who care about someone with BDD will find both helpful advice and reassurance in this indispensable book.

The Broken Mirror--the first book on this underrecognized disorder--is essential reading for the psychiatrists, mental health professionals, and other physicians who see these often undiagnosed patients; for the friends and family concerned and upset by a loved one who won't believe their reassurances; and for the millions who suffer from BDD in silence and secrecy.

The book itself provides an indepth look at BDD, my wife was recently diagnosed with the disorder. However, the book simply tells you about the symptoms and what the patient is going through. It provide little insight on obtaining help. My wife met with the author Katherine Phillips but was only offered a place in her new study for her new book. I feel that writing about the disorder is just that. Nobody seems to be offering a solution. For the price, it's a good book to share with freinds and family to help them understand the pain and stress the disorder puts on everday life. Thanks.

I thought this book (one of the only ones I know of on this subject), gave a comprehensive look at BDD. I thought that I was just weird or crazy and never realized that this disease could be controlled. Thank you to Dr. Phillips. I strongly recommend this book to people who think they might have BDD or OCD.

Katharine Phillips's pioneering work on BDD will help to change the lives of many. I have suffered for over a decade with this chronic, annoying condition. Her clinical expertise and innate ability to relate to her readers through various case studies and the personal interactions with her patients leads one to a true understanding of this disorder. But the author goes a step further by providing treatment techniques which the patient & their loved ones can employ to alleviate/eliminate the emotionally painful behaviors caused by BDD. I will read it again and refer to it during the difficult times I have in coping with BDD. wisedumi, Texas

I have BDD and this book has helped me realize That I'm not alone, the stories have given me insight and new direction in my struggle with BDD.
But without my faith in the lord I don't think I would have made it through the Service for four
years (discharge 91) being housebound for about
3 Years afterwards until my Parents bringing me into the hospital in 93 for treatment I was destined for suicide because I did not want to be
a burden to my family, I recieve social security now but I am still dedicated to get back to work
and overcome this.

Your Friend,

Jerry

I heard about this book on the Oprah show. I was so amazed to find out there was actually a name for this, I just thought that I was crazy. Thank you Katharine, it has really put a perspective on everything.
