Could your body image issues be helped by taking a long look into the mirror?
Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho discusses a method called mirror exposure therapy, which uses a full-length mirror while talking about one's body and she says it may help with issues like eating disorders.
Dr. Judy says one method is having a participant look in the mirror and describe their body in factual and non-negative terms. In another version of the therapy, the persons discuss their body in a utilitarian sense, like how they might be grateful for their legs and arms and thankful that they help you move and get around.
The Doctors explain the therapy is a form of mindfulness and exposure therapy and it teaches someone how to tolerate the distress of looking at their body while also reframing how they think about it. Dr. Judy says this should be done with a therapist and the goal would be to expose and examine more and more of their body as they progress.
