This book presents a brief cognitive-behavioral treatment approach that is suitable for use with individuals or groups suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Delineating a clear medical rationale, the authors help clinicians both to reduce the stigma associated with IBS and to overcome client resistance to psychological treatment. Effective techniques are outlined for helping clients manage anxiety, anger, and shame, enhance their self-efficacy and stress management skills, and alleviate gastrointestinal distress.
