Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome : The Brain-Gut Connection, Hardback Book

Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome : The Brain-Gut Connection Hardback

Part of the Treatment Manuals for Practitioners series

Description

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder, causing pain, discomfort, and embarrassment to millions.

While medically based treatments have demonstrated only limited effectiveness, recent research strongly supports the role of psychosocial factors in both symptom expression and symptom control.

This book presents a brief cognitive-behavioral treatment approach that is suitable for use with individuals or groups.

Delineating a clear medical rationale, the authors help clinicians both to reduce the stigma associated with IBS and to overcome client resistance to psychological treatment.
