Weight, Diet and Body Image: What Every Therapist Needs to Know


Product Description

Published USA, 2016
It is not uncommon for clients to want to know from their therapist THE cause of their weight gain. As there is rarely a single cause, how are therapists going to address their clients' concerns? This book attempts to give therapists solid information and latest research to make sense out of all the conflicting information about diets, weight and exercise. It offers an overview of the processes that determine weight without delving too deeply into the technical aspects or methodology. Chapters are devoted to diets, drugs, supplements and surgery; external cues; emotions; relationships; exercise; and body image.

Edward Abramson is a clinical psychologist and professor at California State University.
