From the Back Cover:

This text introduces an innovative psychological approach to overcoming the growing socio–economic burden of morbidity and mortality resulting from obesity.

Therapeutic Groups for Obese Women contains a 36–week programme and learning tools for clinicians to use with their participants. The treatment model separates the course into three twelve–week modules:

  • Module One focuses on the key areas of emotional intelligence, ability to self–nurture and relationships.
  • Module Two builds on participants’ understanding, addresses emotional and practical barriers to improved eating behaviour and deals with body image concerns.
  • Module Three addresses emotional and practical barriers to increasing activity levels and revisits earlier themes in the programme.

In addition an integral set of worksheets and psychological tools are provided as appendices.

This workbook is an invaluable resource for clinicians and healthcare professionals who wish to run treatment groups for obese women with emotionally driven eating behaviour. It will also be of interest to family therapists, teachers and youth and community workers.

About the Author:

Julia Buckroyd and Sharon Rother seek to understand the psychological meaning of eating behaviour, a focus that conventional obesity treatments tend to neglect. Based on substantial research, this volume presents a programme that will aid clinicians in using a psychologically–informed group treatment for those individuals whose eating is largely emotionally driven.
