With the increase in weight loss surgery, both physical and psychological recovery is an important concern and struggle for patients. The focus of this short course will be on both body and "emotional dysmorphic disorder," that is not "seeing" oneself as others do. We will address how brief how brief, effective mind-body approaches can aid in resolving these conditions and enhance lasting recovery. Methods will include counseling, social support, massage, yoga, martial arts, acupuncture and exercise.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the concept of "emotional dysmorphic disorder as it relates to recovering bariatric surgery patients.
  2. To describe how multiple body awareness therapies enhance the psychological treatment and recovery of bariatric surgery patients.
