"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.
The workbook appendices included in this book are available online free to purchasers of the print version.Visit the websitewww.wiley.com/go/obesity to find out how to access and download this material.
Based on a five-year research project, "Therapeutic Groups for Obese Women" introduces an innovative approach to overcoming the growing socio-economic burden of morbidity and mortality resulting from emotionally-driven female obesity. Julia Buckroyd and Sharon Rother (both of the Obesity and Eating Disorders Research Unit at the University of Hertfordshire), offer a complete 36-week programme based on emotional intelligence and the removal of barriers to improvement, along with learning tools for clinicians to use with participants. Worksheets and a range of other tools are provided as appendices.
