We are pleased to announce the recent release of our latest set of consumer modules – Caring Less About Your Looks – now available online on the CCI website.
Most people feel dissatisfied with their appearance from time to time, however there is a difference between momentary dissatisfaction and being completely preoccupied and consumed by appearance concerns. Rather than change individuals’ beliefs about their appearance, this set of modules is designed to help lessen the impact of their appearance concerns on their lives. The modules first examine the consequences of having significant appearance concerns, such as the impact on relationships, mood and work/study functioning, before looking at the factors that maintain the problem (e.g., appearance preoccupation, body checking, appearance altering behaviours, avoidance behaviours and over-evaluation of appearance). The modules also detail specific strategies that target each of the maintaining mechanisms.
The Caring Less About Your Looks modules are informed by evidence-based treatments, and reference materials by leading eating disorder clinicians including Glenn Waller and David Veale. You can find this new addition to our free consumer resources under the Resources section of our website. The modules are designed so that consumers can either complete them independently or with the assistance of a mental health professional.
