Summary
"The Overweight Patient explores the underlying beliefs and behaviours that may contribute to obesity, including psychological needs, addiction, fear of deprivation, parental influences and sexual fears. Kathy Leach draws a useful distinction between the need to eat and the need to maintain a large body size, and addresses the reasons for both long-term obesity and short-term weight gain. She provides a clear and accessible introduction to the theory of Transactional Analysis psychotherapy and details how this approach is particularly effective for use with overweight people, and as a self-help methodology." "Illustrated with patient histories, exercises and worked examples of techniques, this book enables therapists and health practitioners to help obese people to understand why they reach for good or maintain a large body weight, and to change their eating behaviour or live more comfortably with their size."--BOOK JACKET
