This research aims to identify any patterns in participants’ biographical narratives that might enable therapy to be more effectively directed to help with the growing challenge of obesity. Existing approaches to obesity treatment have largely focused on weight loss (and maintenance) as a discrete problem, isolated from the individual’s wider psychological condition and from their individual history, and there has been some suggestion in the literature that many patients feel that this approach fails to address ‘deeper’ problems influencing their eating and lifestyle behaviours.
