Disordered eating, negative body image, and problems with weight have become an epidemic--and research shows that traditional treatments are not always effective. This professional resource offers proven-effective interventions using mindfulness and acceptance for treating clients with disordered eating, body image, or weight issues--and for whom other treatments have failed.

Millions of people in the United States suffer from eating disorders, and dissatisfaction with weight and body type--even in individuals whose weight is considered normal--is similarly widespread. In addition, more than half of Americans could benefit from healthy weight loss. Unfortunately, not all people with eating disorders or weight concerns respond to traditional therapeutic interventions; many continue to suffer significant symptoms even after treatment. What these clients need is an integrated therapeutic approach that will prove effective in the long run--like the scientifically backed methods in this much-needed clinical guide.

Edited by Ann F. Haynos, Jason Lillis, Evan M. Forman, and Meghan L. Butryn; and with contributors including Kay Segal, Debra Safer, and Hugo Alberts; Mindfulness and Acceptance for Treating Eating Disorders and Weight Concerns is the first professional resource to incorporate a variety of proven-effective acceptance- and mindfulness-based approaches--such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT)--into the treatment of persistent disordered eating, body image issues, and weight problems.

With these evidence-based interventions, you'll be ready to help your clients move beyond their problems with disordered eating, body dissatisfaction, and weight management once and for all.
