The prevalence of BDD is higher in clinical samples. Gender ratios in epidemiologic studies show a slight preponderance of females, which is confirmed in most convenience and clinical samples. Prevalence rates appear to be highest in younger (adolescent) subsamples. Other demographic correlates include a lower likelihood of being in a committed relationship, less education, lower household income, and higher unemployment rates. Key clinical correlates from epidemiologic studies are greater depression, anxiety, and somatoform symptoms and more frequent suicidal ideation and suicide attempts. Reasons for the underrecognition of BDD include shame, fear of not being understood by the clinician, lack of readiness for treatment, skepticism about treatment or belief in the superiority of other forms of treatment (such as cosmetic treatment), and lack of financial coverage for treatment.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Prevalence and Underrecognition of Body Dysmorphic Disorder</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-12-02T13:25:05Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2017</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Hartmann, Andrea S.</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Hartmann, Andrea S.</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-12-02T13:25:05Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Buhlmann, Ulrike</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Buhlmann, Ulrike</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
