We all think we know what we have to do to manage our weight, and blame ourselves when we don't meet the goals we have set. In reality, we need to understand the biology behind the body's regulation of weight to achieve the control we are hoping for. And we need strategies for overcoming obstacles: the stress of daily life, emotional upsets, and people who sabotage our efforts or attack our self-esteem. The Cognitive Behavioral Workbook for Weight Management is a different kind of weight management guide that focuses on helping you stay disciplined and dedicated to your weight management goals by using cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach has been used by therapists for years to treat a diverse range of mental health conditions, and researchers have found that it also helps people make healthy changes that last.

Obesity has quickly become an American epidemic. People suffering from significant overweight often have to contend with a lifetime of significant comorbidities, social stigma, and lower quality of life. Recently, more and more people are undergoing weight loss surgery as a way to resolve these issues. If you are working with pre- or post-operative bariatric surgery patients, your goal is to teach them the skills they need to ensure themselves a successful surgical outcome. After surgery, patients are required to adhere to a strict diet and the very specific recommendations of their surgical "team." Without a high level of commitment from the patient to follow these recommendations, the potential for maintained weight loss after surgery is very limited. Preparing for Your Weight Loss Surgery, Therapist Guide contains a series of scientifically tested cognitive-behavioral techniques to help you prepare your patient for the post-operative challenges of creating radically changed eating and lifestyle habits. It provides instructions for teaching your patient basic problem-solving and cognitive restructuring methods that will change their negative thoughts and attitudes about food. Interactive forms including food records and checklists, body image journals, and homework assignments found in the corresponding patient workbook round out this comprehensive treatment package. TreatmentsThatWorkTM represents the gold standard of behavioral healthcare interventions! · All programs have been rigorously tested in clinical trials and are backed by years of research · A prestigious scientific advisory board, led by series Editor-In-Chief David H. Barlow, reviews and evaluates each intervention to ensure that it meets the highest standard of evidence so you can be confident that you are using the most effective treatment available to date · Our books are reliable and effective and make it easy for you to provide your clients with the best care available · Our corresponding workbooks contain psychoeducational information, forms and worksheets, and homework assignments to keep clients engaged and motivated · A companion website (www.oup.com/us/ttw) offers downloadable clinical tools and helpful resources · Continuing Education (CE) Credits are now available on select titles in collaboration with PsychoEducational Resources, Inc.

A leading clinician and researcher in the growing field of sexual medicine explains the connection between a man's sexual function and overall health—and delivers a 7-step action plan for him to enjoy sexual intimacy over his entire life As director of the New York Center for Human Sexuality at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Ridwan Shabsigh treats thousands of patients with sexual dysfunctions. His more than 16 years of practice and trailblazing research at Columbia University have confirmed that health is intimately connected to sexual function and that the only way to treat declines in sexual desire, performance, and satisfaction is within the context of men's and couples' health. Now Dr. Shabsigh brings his expert recommendations to the public in this book. Refusing to accept that sexual dysfunction is the inevitable consequence of aging, he lays out a 7-step program to help all men improve their sexual relations—and their health. The book contains: • a self-test that assesses the reader's health, sexual satisfaction, and risk for sexual dysfunction • information on how medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression affect a man's sex life—and how sexual dysfunction is the first warning sign of serious illness • recommendations for improving lifestyle choices that cause sexual problems and comprehensive approaches to treating any sexual dysfunction The result is a book that helps every man achieve a lifetime of better sex and optimum health.
