An Introduction To Eating Disorder Therapy

If you have a loved one or someone that you know experiencing an eating disorder, you may be very interested in learning more about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This is an effective treatment for those suffering from anorexia, bulimia and several other eating disorders. It is based on the concept of altering the way you respond to stressful situations through your thoughts and feelings. Many people are surprised to learn that their reactions to stressful situations can be altered by the use of CBT. In fact, many people report that their lives have changed for the better since they received treatment.Feel free to find more information at Eating Disorder Therapy San Diego.

The good news is that there are eating disorder therapists out there who can help. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be conducted by a qualified therapist or you can receive therapy by doing it on your own. If you want to find a qualified therapist, check with your local hospital or school. Many hospitals have a psychologist in place as a qualified Eating Disorder Therapist. In addition to a therapist, if you choose to do CBT on your own, you will want to make sure that you find a good book that explains the process in layman’s terms.

You will also need to keep in mind that every person reacts differently to the same treatment. A person with a binge eating disorder may not respond as well to the same techniques as a person who is undergoing cognitive behavioral therapy. When you decide to seek out individual needs and find a therapist that is a good fit for you, make sure that they are certified. The National Association of Personal Responsibility has a list of certified eating disorder therapists.
