Transforming Body Image: Love the Body You Have

Marcia Germaine Hutchinson, Author, Marcia Germaine Hutchinson, Author Crossing Press $14.95 (159p) ISBN 978-0-89594-172-5
Hutchinson writes that her book ""isn't about changing your body. It's about learning to love and accept the body you already have. It's making your body a home you can live with.'' Drawing on her experience as a workshop leader in the Boston area, the author sets forth a program designed to improve ``body-esteem.'' The key is a series of sometimes obscure exercises designed to do such things as train the ``imaginal muscles,'' get to know one's body image, determine the role models one formed during childhood and pinpoint the sub-personalities that take part in the ongoing struggle with one's body. Readers are likely to find that this self-help doesn't stand on its own; participation in the author's workshops appears to be a prerequisite to grasping and appreciating the concepts she describes.
