Our culture has a problem with eating. Not so much the act of eating itself, but the kinds of foods and the amount of such foods. Foods are everywhere, all the time. But oddly enough, at the very same time, we are obsessed with physical beauty. Or more precisely, a particular, often unobtainable version of beauty. We, as a culture, no longer encourage our children to be accepting for who they are physically. Nor do we seem able to accept ourselves for who we are. We must be thinner, more muscular, less wrinkled and less gray ? all in the name of physical perfection. Temptation is everywhere, and we have lost the ability to say ?no?. And at the same time, when we give our children the message that they should strive for an unattainable physical ideal, what can we expect other than great difficulties with the process of eating? This clinically developed and proven workbook employs the major eating interventions by using model presentations, rehearsal, positive feedback and promoting. The Workbook is designed to reduce levels of guilt, shame, and isolation underlying the eating problem and is written especially for adolescents and pre-adolescents.
