Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to accept and enjoy the way you look instead of constantly worrying about and criticizing your appearance? What if instead of focusing on your flaws, you felt confident with the body you have right now?

If you don't like what you see when you look in the mirror, you may not realize that these feelings are entirely within your grasp. You don't need extensive cosmetic surgery, pricey beauty treatments, or weight loss programs, but you may need to do something even more drastic-change your perspective and the way you view yourself. The Body Image Workbook offers a comprehensive program to help you stop focusing on your perceived imperfections and start feeling more confident about the way you look.

As you complete the helpsheets in this book, you'll learn to celebrate your body instead of feeling ashamed of it. This new edition includes discussions of our obsession with physical appearance and with body-fixing options. It helps you discover your personal body image strengths and vulnerabilities and then guides you in creating new, life-changing experiences of mindfulness and body acceptance. After completing this eight-step program, you'll look at yourself in a whole new light-seeing the beauty of the real you.The problem of body image dissatisfaction is sadly epidemic in today's world. To dislike your own body is to dislike yourself. A negative body image needlessly diminishes the quality of your life. The arrival of The Body Image Workbook brings hoped-for relief. Dr. Cash is an acclaimed professional whose eight-step program is sensitive and solution-giving.

-Dr. Joyce Brothers

Dr. Cash is one of the most sensitive and sympathetic voices on the subject of body image. He brings knowledge and care, intelligence and kindness to a complicated, loaded issue. The Body Image Workbook offers a clear road map to understanding body image problems and relieving them.

-Linda Wells, editor-in-chief, Allure magazine, former beauty editor, New York Times

Dr. Cash has a knack for translating the best of what science offers into something friendly, supportive, and helpful.

-Kelly D. Brownell, Ph.D., director of the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University

This workbook admirably fulfills the author's objective and promise. It is useful, empathetic, thorough, and common-sensed. My feedback for the author? Nothing, except congratulations!

-Robert M. Goldwyn, MD, clinical professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School, Division of Plastic Surgery, former chief of plastic surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Synopsis:

Based on author Thomas Cash's clinically tested program, this major revision of The Body Image Workbook offers you who are concerned or distressed about their body image an eight-step program for transforming their relationships with their bodies.

Synopsis:

Are you comfortable with the skin youre in? If not, you arent alone. Most people are dissatisfied with some aspect of their physical appearance, but if your unhappiness with your looks starts to take over your life, its time to make a change. This book applies powerful acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) principles to help you accept both your body and negative thoughts, and discover new feelings of validity beyond your reflection in the mirror.

Synopsis:

Lets be honest: most people are unhappy with at least some aspect of their physical appearance. Just think of all the money we spend each year trying to improve our looks! But if worrying about your appearance is getting in the way of living, maybe its time to start thinking about body image in a completely new way.

Based in proven-effective acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Living with Your Body and Other Things You Hate offers a unique approach to addressing your struggle with body image. In this book, you will not be told that your self-perceptions are wrong, that your thoughts are irrational, or that your feelings are misguided. Instead, you will learn to live with the reality that these often painful thoughts and beliefs about yourself will arise from time to time, and that what is really important is accepting these distressing thoughts without allowing them to dominate your life.

You know what its like to constantly be checking the mirror, to avoid certain social situations where your body may be exposed, or to gaze longingly at a fashion model in a magazine and think, “Why cant I be her?” But what you may not know is that people who struggle with negative body image are at an increased risk for depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and low self-esteem. Body image problems can even lead to major financial issues. By focusing on your appearance and little else, you are hurting yourself in more ways than one.

If you are ready to find a purpose in life that is more important than the pain you feel about your appearance, this book provides a truthful, powerful resource.
