CBT Body Image Worksheet
What is the theory behind this Body image worksheet?
Most people strive for a ‘perfect’ body or a certain feature of their appearance based on ideal standards of beauty set by society. They erroneously associate happiness with a particular body type or physical feature. The discrepancy between the real self and the ideal self contributes to feelings of inadequacy and dissatisfaction with the self, which may have a negative impact on mental well-being. Cognitive Behavior Therapy focuses on developing a healthy relationship with the body by restructuring negative thoughts related to the body.
