About the treatment
Please note that the Internet-based treatment described on this website is conducted in Swedish and only available to people registered and living in Sweden.
The Internet-based treatment for BDD is a self-help program divided into 8 parts (modules). Each module consists of a text that you read and exercises that you work with. The texts can be fairly extensive and you need to be able to carry out practical exercises on your own.
You need to set off approximately one hour per day to work with the treatment in order to have full benefit from it.
The treatment program runs over a period of 12 weeks and during that time you will have regular contact with a psychologist via messages sent over the treatment's web platform.
The psychologist answers questions and gives feedback on the assignments and exercises that you do.
The treatment focuses on different themes:
- Information about BDD
- Registering and challenging negative automatic thoughts that occur in different situations
- Gradually face situations normally avoided
- Gradually decrease the time spent controlling or concealing perceived flaws in the appearance
