A Psychological Approach to Regaining Control of Your Life
by Barbara B. Bolem, Ph.D.
One of the challenges of living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is coping with the stress that triggers the illness. In this book, a clinical psychologist provides a comprehensive overview of IBS, describes its treatments, and helps readers establish healthy new eating habits. Using self-monitoring forms and charts, sufferers learn to manage their symptoms, develop strategies to handle flare-ups, and deal with the anxiety and depression that often accompany this common disorder.
