Project Description

The most effective treatment for negative body image is mirror exposure, reducing avoidance and providing accurate feedback on appearance. This method is effective in working with clinical and non-eating-disordered individuals. However, it does not work to the same degree for all individuals, and is not implemented in the same way by all clinicians. This research programme will consider how to optimise the impact of mirror exposure for the individual with a negative body image, addressing factors that are localised in the sufferer (e.g., reassurance-seeking), in the clinician (e.g., fear of distressing the sufferer), and in the method used (e.g., the impact of distraction techniques during the exposure period).
