The media and other social factors often encourage people to pursue unrealistic body standards. A person’s self-image becomes tainted, and they harm their bodies through various attempts to change their appearance. Body image therapy helps patients identify the hidden causes of poor body image and establish healthier self-talk. Therapy techniques can also reduce harmful behavior, including substance use, which those with body image struggles might adopt to escape their situation.
