There are times in our lives when we all feel confused and overwhelmed. The advice in this book can help you deal with specific emotional problems. This book provides support for those suffering from mental distress and unable to get immediate medical or psychological help. The book covers a comprehensive range of emotional disorders. The advice is intended to be the first step to recovery. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) empowers you to understand the problem in a way that will maximise your potential to tackle future obstacles and become more independent. You will be successfully helped to mobilise your own resources, and improve your sense of self-effectiveness, by being enabled to attribute the cause of change to your own efforts. CBT concentrates on the connections between a person’s thoughts about themselves or a situation and how this affects feelings and behaviour. Together the patient and therapist work to understand and alter the negative thinking and behaviour that result in distress and prevent the patient from living a normal life. CBT can be used for a variety of disorders and aims to tackle the root cause of the illness, reducing the need for drugs at all in some cases. For other illnesses, CBT is being developed as a partner for drugs. ‘A Better Life’ includes information, tools and exercises to enable you to gain insight into your problems; start making changes for the better; recover and move forward with confidence and prevent relapses so you maintain your progress. You will experience an increase in power and control over your problems from gaining a different perspective and examining the roots of your problems. As your self-awareness and personal insight develop, you will feel new energy and self-acceptance. By exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviour you will be able to face decisions and choices on your own more resourcefully. You will find the opportunity to make sense of your life and be able to plan changes that will make a difference to your future.
Therapists often encounter clients with mild to moderate eating and weight issues, less severe than anorexia, bulimia, or binge-eating disorder. They emerge as minor themes that lurk behind major presenting problems such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, and marital discord; and therapists who aren't looking for them may miss opportunities. Koenig’s book is written for practitioners who lack expertise in this area, and provides clinical strategies and therapeutic techniques to explore clients’ feelings about food and their bodies to get at the root of these issues. It includes descriptions of how food and weight problems surface in conjunction with psychological and medical conditions, as well as how they create difficulties in various life stages and situations. Packed with insights and practical tips, this unique book teaches clinicians how to help clients make peace with food and the scale and balance nutrition and exercise in a healthy lifestyle.
