eBook Overview

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.
