The Body Image Workbook offers a comprehensive program to help you stop focusing on your perceived imperfections and start feeling more confident about the way you look.
As you complete the helpsheets in this book, you'll learn to celebrate your body instead of feeling ashamed of it. This new edition includes discussions of our obsession with physical appearance and with body-fixing options.

Abstract
On a Saturday morning at the end of November 2008, a young family suffered the loss of two sons and the permanent paralysis of another as a result of an automobile accident. Rather than tear the family apart, the tragedy drew them closer and touched the hearts of people in and out of their Catholic community. The boys' father began writing to express the painful emotions he felt and the faith that supported him. These poems and reflections, though heart-wrenching, have been presented in the hope they may bring comfort to other victims of tragedy by witnessing to the healing and transforming power of faith, family and love.
