- Pub. Date:
- Oxford University Press
If you suffer from Bulimia Nervosa or Binge-Eating Disorder, you know how hard it can be to change your problem behaviors surrounding food and eating. However, with the right tools and support, you can overcome your disorder and return to a healthy way of life.
Based on the principles of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, the program described in this newly revised and updated workbook will teach you the skills you need to overcome your eating disorder and establish healthy habits. Through daily self-monitoring, you will learn to regularize you eating and expand the variety of foods that you consume. This will help you maintain a healthy weight and will reduce your desire to binge and purge. You will also learn techniques for solving problems, challenging your negative thoughts, and addressing your concerns about weight and shape. Use the workbook to share information with friends and loved ones so they can support and encourage you throughout the treatment process.
When used in conjunction with visits to a qualified mental health professional, this workbook will help you realize the triggers for your disordered eating habits. Once you are able to identify them, you can eliminate them. At the end of treatment, we fully expect that you will have reduced the number of your binge eating and purging episodes, improved your body image, and gained a sense of mastery and control over your eating.
