We all think we know what we have to do to manage our weight, and blame ourselves when we don't meet the goals we have set. In reality, we need to understand the biology behind the body's regulation of weight to achieve the control we are hoping for. And we need strategies for overcoming obstacles: the stress of daily life, emotional upsets, and people who sabotage our efforts or attack our self-esteem. The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management is a different kind of weight management guide that focuses on helping you stay disciplined and dedicated to your weight management goals by using cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach has been used by therapists for years to treat a diverse range of mental health conditions, and researchers have found that it also helps people make healthy changes that last. This workbook includes exercises and worksheets to help you design a customized weight management strategy most likely to be effective for you based on the habits and lifestyle you have now. You'll set specific goals to improve your body image and your health, and follow a realistic weight management plan designed specifically for you. It is possible to feel good about yourself as you work toward a healthier lifestyle. This book will show you how. Learn to: •Manage situational, emotional, and interpersonal eating triggers •Overcome body image difficulties and critical thoughts •Make changes toward weight management that you actually enjoy •Use support from friends and family to bolster success

"Kognitive Verhaltenstherapie bei Adipositas": So ermöglichen Sie Ihren Patientinnen und Patienten Abnehmen und Gewichthalten auf Dauer! "Die Deutschen sind die dicksten Europäer ..." Eine neue Studie der International Association for the Study of Obesity bescheinigt deutschen Frauen und Männern ein gewichtiges Problem: Über die Hälfte der Frauen und drei Viertel der Männer sind übergewichtig oder sogar adipös -- was gravierende gesundheitliche und soziale Folgen nach sich zieht. Zafra Cooper, Christopher G. Fairburn und Deborah M. Hawker, ausgewiesene Experten für die Behandlung von Essstörungen, legen mit diesem kognitiv-verhaltenstherapeutischen Manual ein intelligentes Konzept zur nachhaltigen Behandlung von Adipositas und Übergewicht vor, das Patienten gezielt dabei unterstützt, das erreichte Gewicht auch langfristig beizubehalten. Mehr als ein Drittel der Therapiezeit ist daher dem Lernen und Üben entsprechender Strategien gewidmet, die den Patienten das Gewichthalten auch nach Beendigung der Therapie ermöglichen sollen -- ein ganz wesentlicher Punkt, der bei anderen Behandlungsansätzen oft vernachlässigt wird. Zudem wird eine Vielzahl von "inneren Blockaden" (z.B. Körperschema- und Akzeptanzprobleme, unrealistische Zielgewichtsvorstellungen, dysfunktionale Überzeugungen etc.) gründlich bearbeitet, die in vielen Fällen für eine neuerliche Gewichtszunahme verantwortlich sind. Ausführliche Beschreibungen, oft in Form von Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen, zahlreiche Fallbeispiele, exemplarische Darstellungen von Patienten-Therapeuten-Gesprächssituationen, theoretische Hintergründe sowie viel Praktisches zu den Themen "Diät" und "Steigerung der körperlichen Aktivität"Informations- und Arbeitsblätter für Patienten"Informations- und Arbeitsblätter für Patienten" machen aus dem in 9 Modulen aufgebauten Manual einen therapeutischen Leitfaden, der Ihnen eine sinnvolle.

Americans boast the largest waistlines in the world, suffering from epidemic levels of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. Britain is not far behind and other nations with first-world affluence are all wrestling to varying degrees with this problem too. Even countries in the earlier stages of industrialization are starting to get caught up in the battle of the bulge. Despite the fact that we are all, on average, quite overweight, our cultural media promotes a "cult of the thin and beautiful". All of us are bombarded with images and messages all day that lead many to unhealthful obsessions with the shape of their bodies. At best, these body-image issues can be unpleasant and distracting from the goal of being healthy and happy. At worst they can lead to serious mental health problems like body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) or eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia nervosa.This revised edition of a classic workbook presents a complete approach to dealing with body image issues. It includes new evidence that confirms the effectiveness of its cognitive behavioural approach. The book presents new discussions of cosmetic surgery, weight loss, and other body-fixing options, as well as information for persons with physically disfiguring conditions. A major shift in this edition orients this book with others grounded in the tradition of mindfulness and acceptance.
