This chapter provides an overview of findings on cognitive characteristics such as dysfunctional beliefs, information-processing biases for threat (e.g., selective attention, interpretation), and implicit associations (e.g., low self-esteem, strong physical attractiveness stereotype, and high importance of attractiveness). The chapter also reviews face recognition abnormalities and emotion recognition deficits and biases (e.g., misinterpreting neutral faces as angry) as well as facial discrimination ability. These studies suggest that BDD is associated with dysfunctional beliefs about one’s own appearance, information-processing biases, emotion recognition deficits and biases, and selective processing of appearance-related information. Future steps to stimulate more research and clinical implications are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2017</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-12-02T13:20:43Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Cognitive and Emotional Processing in Body Dysmorphic Disorder</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Buhlmann, Ulrike</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
