For patients considering weight loss surgery, there is an enormous amount of information to know. In a very few short years, the number of options for surgery have increased. Patients undergoing surgery need to know their surgical options, how they compare in outcomes and risks, and how to prepare before and after surgery. In addition, the dietary changes necessary after weight loss surgery require a significant amount of education. Patients need a resource to turn to when looking for appropriate foods to eat and when evaluating the foods that they want to eat. Education is the key to succeeding with weight loss surgery. Covering all this information is impossible in a single visit to your physician, or even after several visits. Considering Weight Loss Surgery is a resource for both the patient and for the physician. It serves to organize the information that needs to pass from surgeon to patient, and acts as a longstanding reference to patients well after they have had surgery. By standardizing the educational process and providing a reference for patients, better outcomes and better understanding can be obtained.

Obesity has quickly become an American epidemic. People suffering from significant overweight often have to contend with a lifetime of significant comorbidities, social stigma, and lower quality of life. Recently, more and more people are undergoing weight loss surgery as a way to resolve these issues. If you are working with pre- or post-operative bariatric surgery patients, your goal is to teach them the skills they need to ensure themselves a successful surgical outcome. After surgery, patients are required to adhere to a strict diet and the very specific recommendations of their surgical "team." Without a high level of commitment from the patient to follow these recommendations, the potential for maintained weight loss after surgery is very limited. Preparing for Your Weight Loss Surgery, Therapist Guide contains a series of scientifically tested cognitive-behavioral techniques to help you prepare your patient for the post-operative challenges of creating radically changed eating and lifestyle habits. It provides instructions for teaching your patient basic problem-solving and cognitive restructuring methods that will change their negative thoughts and attitudes about food. Interactive forms including food records and checklists, body image journals, and homework assignments found in the corresponding patient workbook round out this comprehensive treatment package. TreatmentsThatWorkTM represents the gold standard of behavioral healthcare interventions! · All programs have been rigorously tested in clinical trials and are backed by years of research · A prestigious scientific advisory board, led by series Editor-In-Chief David H.
