Etiology, Assessment, and Treatment of Muscle Dysmorphia
Muscle dysmorphia is a newly described disorder in which muscular men believe they are smaller than they actually appear. Similar to the presentation of eating disorders in women, men with muscle dysmorphia have behavioral symptoms and cognitive distortions that serve to maintain the disorder. A brief overview of muscle dysmorphia, its diagnostic criteria, and some of the causes is provided. Assessment issues and treatment suggestions are also discussed.
