Community Programs
Manual/Prevention program 135 pages

Set Your Body Free is an evidence-based eight session group cognitive-behavioural therapy program designed to address clinical and subclinical body image and eating problems (including binge eating, bulimic and unhealthy dieting but excluding Anorexia Nervosa) in adult women. Set Your Body Free has been demonstrated to be effective in reducing body dissatisfaction and Eating Disorder symptoms in one randomised, controlled trial. The manual provides psycho-education, activities and discussion topics for each session that address enhancing motivation to change, identifying and changing disordered eating and dieting, eating and emotions, body image and dissatisfaction, self-talk and core beliefs, problem solving for body image and eating situations and relapse prevention. Initially designed for both face-to-face and online internet delivery, the manual can be used in a guided self-help format or as a program guide for group therapy for a wide range of Eating Disorders.
