Pullingthetrigger – Body Image and Body Dysmorphic Disorder. The Definitive Treatment and Recovery Approach.AVAILABLE NOW
From the heart and soul of mental health sufferer, Chloe Catchpole, and the expert minds of the talented, clinical psychologists, Lauren Callaghan and Dr. Annemarie O’Connor, this book is divided into two helpful, cohesive parts.
In Part I we follow Chloe Catchpole’s desperate struggle with her body dissatisfaction, BDD, and depression. We learn how body dysmorphia tore her life apart, turning a happy, sociable young girl into someone who hid herself away from the world. She was so afraid of being seen in public that she dropped out of school and became a prisoner in her own bedroom. It wasn’t until Chloe met clinical psychologists Lauren Callaghan and Annemarie O’Connor that she started to believe recovery was possible. With their help, she learned about the illness that was dominating her life and learned effective strategies to challenge and overcome her BDD.
Part II Lauren and Annemarie guide us through the treatment and recovery approach that they used with Chloe. It is a user-friendly, evidence-based approach which supports people suffering from body image issues and BDD as they go through the treatment process, liberating them from their body image concerns.
