Publisher Comments:

At the root of bulimia is a need for control over one's body, environment, and feelings of self-worth. Instead of coping with negative feelings in healthy ways, people with bulimia binge and purge. This book is for people who attempt to calm intense, negative emotions through their bulimia-people who feel that by controlling their weight, they will be able to better control their lives. The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for Bulimia teaches readers a healthier coping mechanism for dealing with their feelings called dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Using skills drawn from this proven approach, along with motivational interviewing, readers learn to regulate their emotions in effective ways that are healthy for mind and body. Worksheets and exercises throughout the book help readers put new skills like commitment, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness into practice. This book also helps readers identify and address mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression, that are often comorbid with bulimia.

Synopsis:

In The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for Bulimia, two psychologists specializing in eating disorders and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) show readers how to regulate negative emotions and behaviors and overcome bulimia.

Synopsis:

At the root of bulimia is a need to feel in control. While purging is a strategy for controlling weight, bingeing is an attempt to calm depression, stress, shame, and even boredom. The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for Bulimia offers new and healthy ways to overcome the distressing feelings and negative body-image beliefs that keep you trapped in this cycle.

In this powerful program used by therapists, you'll learn four key skill sets-mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness-and begin using them right away to manage bulimic urges. The book includes worksheets and exercises designed to help you take charge of your emotions and end your dependence on bulimia. You'll also learn how to stay motivated and committed to ending bulimia instead of reverting to old behaviors. Used together, the skills presented in this workbook will help you begin to cope with uncomfortable feelings in healthy ways, empower you to feel good about nourishing your body, and finally gain true control over your life.
