A clinician’s guide to acceptance-based approaches for weight concerns, the accept yourself! framework, by Margit Berman

This clinician manual presents the Accept Yourself! Program, which is derived from empirically supported interventions (including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Health At Every Size) that have a demonstrated ability to enhance women’s mental and physical health. This book offers a clear, research-based, and forgiving explanation for clients’ failure to lose weight, helpful guidance for clinicians who are frustrated with poor client weight loss outcomes, as well as a liberating invitation to clients to give up this struggle and find another way to achieve their dreams and goals
