It's no secret that body image dissatisfaction has reached epidemic levels, but what's less often understood is the effect that these unhealthy views about one's body can have on a person's overall mental health. People who struggle with negative body image are at increased risk for depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and low self-esteem. Body image problems are often at the root of social anxiety and even financial issues, as Americans spend billions to improve their physical appearance each year.
The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Body Image takes a unique approach to addressing readers' struggles with their body image. In this workbook, readers will not find soothing arguments that their perceptions are wrong, their thoughts are irrational, and that that feelings are misguided. Instead, readers learn to live with the reality that these often painful thoughts and beliefs about themselves will arise from time to time, and discover new ways of managing these thoughts without allowing them to dominate their lives. The assessments and worksheets in this workbook help readers to realize what body image difficulties have cost them and encourages them to choose a purpose for life that is more important than the pain felt over their body image. The book also includes a companion CD with guided audio mindfulness meditations and printable worksheets.
