A Process-Focused Guide to Treating Eating Disorders with ACT
At some point in clinical practice, most therapists will encounter a client suffering with an eating disorder, but many are uncertain of how to treat these issues. Because eating disorders are rooted in secrecy and reinforced by our culture's dangerous obsession with thinness, sufferers are likely to experience significant health complications before they receive the help they need. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Eating Disorders presents a thorough conceptual foundation along with a complete protocol therapists can use to target the rigidity and perfectionism at the core of most eating disorders. Using this protocol, therapists can help clients overcome anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and other types of disordered eating.
This professional guide offers a review of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) as a theoretical orientation and presents case conceptualizations that illuminate the ACT process. Then, it provides session-by-session guidance for training and tracking present-moment focus, cognitive defusion, experiential acceptance, transcendent self-awareness, chosen values, and committed action-the six behavioral components that underlie ACT and allow clients to radically change their relationship to food and to their bodies. Both clinicians who already use ACT in their practices and those who have no prior familiarity with this revolutionary approach will find this resource essential to the effective assessment and treatment of all types of eating disorders.
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.
