Research into the use of Virtual Reality in the treatment of BDD

Have you had CBT for Body Dysmorphic Disorder? If yes, then Kings College London would like to hear from you about using virtual reality in the treatment of BDD.

King’s College London aims to find out whether people with BDD think using Virtual Reality (VR) in treatment would be useful, whether they have concerns with such methods, and the effects of specific VR features on treatment. The information gathered will go towards investigating new treatment pathways and improving existing treatments for BDD.

You can take part in this study if:

  • You have had CBT for BDD
  • You are over the age of 18
  • You are fluent in English

What will you be asked to do?

If you choose to take part in this study, King’s College will invite you to a focus group with a small number of people who have BDD. You will be asked to discuss your thoughts and opinions with other participants on questions asked by the research team. The focus group session will last up to an hour and will be online on Microsoft Teams or Zoom.

If you are interested in participating and would like to find out more about the study, please contact the team using the contact form:
