GREAT book! Great for teen, specially girls! I just wish there was a complementary book for a CBT psychologist. Nevertheless, I really recommend it! I love the exercises! Just great!

The Body Image Workbook for Teens lives up to the title by guiding teen girls toward a more grounded and realistic view of themselves. It is a quick and easy read, mostly filled with strategic questionnaires for girls to answer.

THE BODY IMAGE WORKBOOK FOR TEENS is a guide, not just for girls with body image issues, but tackle universal subjects including self-esteem, communication, boundaries. I'm a child/teen psychologist.

Adults would also benefit from this workbook, or with a little repackaging this could be converted to a book for ...more

I thought this book was well thought out. There are a lot of questions it asks to help girls think through WHY they feel a certain way about their bodies, and not just assure them with platitudes that "everyone is beautiful in their own way". The way a young woman feels about her body is very real. And while their feelings are not always the truth, they are real.

This workbook does an excellent job of bringing out opportunities for discussion between mother and daughter, or small group and leader

Wish I would have had this book ten years ago when my oldest was a teenager. This is a wonderful resource for parents and teens. A lot of books seem to just tell the teens that they are beautiful and though it is an ego boost it doesn't explain why which leaves room for further doubt. This book dives into the whys and leaves little room for the doubt.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley
