While it is not your role to treat BDD you will likely be a first port of call for those experiencing symptoms of it. With clients who are experiencing such difficulties it has been discovered that fewer than 10% will be satisfied with treatments they receive, which could leave you open for criticism, complaints and legal action. With this in mind it is worth considering what you can do to work in the best interest of both your client and yourself to uphold your reputation within this rapidly expanding industry.
