Body Dysmorphia and Anorexia

Systems theory tells us that in order to solve a problem we have to use the right set of assumptions. Further, it tells us that if we use the wrong assumptions, the problem will continue to get worse. Suffice it to say, the underlying assumptions of those suffering with eating disorders are incorrect. One good example is the role that body dysmorphia plays in driving disordered eating – Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is not the same thing. I should point out that not all individuals that suffer from Anorexia suffer from body dysmorphia, but many do. The underlying assumptions of those Anorexics suffering from body dysmorphia include: Imagined defects in appearance. “My thighs are fat.” Or  “My belly sticks out ...

Anorexia Nervosa & Body Dysmorphia

photo used under a creative commons license, flickr user Ken Doerr Many patients with anorexia nervosa experience body dysmorphia; they feel that they are much larger than they actually are. Recently, a study was published that investigated whether this overestimation of body size is a symptom of the eating disorder or if it is a general impairment in perception. The study involved fifty participants; 25 of the participants had anorexia nervosa, 25 participants were control participants. Participants were well-matched based on age and level of education. Within a test room, each participant was presented with a door. The participant had to judge whether the door was wide enough for them to pass through. Presented with the same door, the participant ...
iPhone Therapy

iTherapy – Integrating the iPhone into Therapy

photo used under creative commons license I recently read an article by Dr. Weissman of the Chicago Institute of Psychoanalysis that introduced the concept of using an iPhone in the treatment of anorexia and body dysmorphic disorder. Times are changing faster than ever. Technological advances, such as the introduction of the iPhone, have drastically changed the way we communicate and perform everyday activities. We can easily observe our everyday lives via the video and photo component of the iPhone. Weissman believes that this component of iPhone technology could be an effective tool in the treatment of the body dysmorphia that often accompanies anorexia. Many of my patients that are in treatment for anorexia also experience some level of body dysmorphia; ...
