The BFRB Recovery Workbook by Marla W. Deibler, PsyD, ABPP and Renae Reinardy, PsyD is published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers and is available now.
Providing evidence-based tools consistent with the most up-to-date behavioural science, this workbook will help you to examine your BFRB in a new way and reduce the behaviour with individually tailored interventions.
The BFRB Recovery Workbook by Marla W. Deibler, PsyD, and Renae M. Reinardy, PsyD, takes an integrative behavioural approach to the treatment of BFRBs. The workbook can be completed from the comfort of your own home, or can be followed under the guidance of a psychologist or therapist.
This workbook delves deep into understanding what BFRBs are and how they manifest differently for everyone. Recognizing that chances are you’ve already tried to tackle your BFRB, the workbook opens up avenues for you to examine your behaviour patterns from fresh perspectives. Grounded in the latest behavioural science, the workbook provides individually tailored interventions, equipping you with the tools you need for a more effective recovery process.
Each chapter of the workbook is structured around three core areas:
Explore: Informational sections to deepen your understanding of BFRBs and how they relate to your personal experience.
Practice: Skill-building exercises and interactive elements that aim to expand your toolset for managing BFRBs.
Action Plan: Sections that focus on setting practical commitments based on what you’ve learned, ensuring that you take proactive steps towards recovery.
While the workbook encourages the use of the term "recovery," it invites you to define what recovery means for you. The goal is to guide you towards a future where you are unfettered by your BFRB and can live a fulfilling life.
Whether you're new to the world of BFRBs or have been navigating this terrain for a while, this workbook offers something for everyone. It’s not merely about eliminating a problem; it's about transforming your life and sense of self for the better.
The book's integrative behavioural therapy approach is rooted in behavioural and cognitive psychology, utilising CBT, ACT, DBT, and HRT, and is applicable to all BFRBs.
