Anorexia Workbook: How to Accept Yourself, Heal Your Suffering and Reclaim Your Life


Product Description

Published USA, 2004
Drawing on Steven Hayes`s `Acceptance & Commitment Therapy` (ACT), this workbook is full of easily understood but not simplistic principles for self-change. Rather than focusing on what is wrong, this workbook helps the reader to find the path to what is right through metaphorical images, written exercises and active participation. The person-focused perspective teaches people to change the way they respond to their thoughts and feelings, to be `mindful` without reacting in a self-destructive way. This workbook serves well as a treatment manual for eating disorder therapists looking to incorporate ACT into their treatment approach.
