“As a diabetes educator, I have a lot of knowledge but just telling a patient to do something doesn't mean they are going to go home and do it. This book is an essential resource in addressing the emotional aspects of education.”
Maggie Robbins, RD, CDE, Minneapolis, MN

I liked the fact that principles could be applied to all populations, not just people with diabetes. The "stop, drop, and roll" analogy was excellent."
Barbara Sternitzke, RD, San Antonio, TX

It was so well related to daily situations you encounter in practice. Also offered a variety of tools to assist you in your practice and for your patients."
Ruth Kraper, RD, Paducah, KY

"I liked the practical tools to address the emotional issues that impact our patients' nutritional status. We're taught a lot about chemistry, biology, drugs, and nutrients but we're not taught a lot about effective counseling skills."
Miranda Beason, RD, Bellevue, NE
