FREE! Focus on Behavior: Empower Your Clients Using a Weight-Neutral Approach to Diabetes Counseling (1 CPEU/CEU)


 
This innovative counseling approach will teach you to focus your diabetes counseling on behaviors, rather than weight-loss. (No, weight loss is NOT a behavior--it's an outcome!) Discover how uncoupling diabetes counseling from weight loss can actually free your clients to make changes that--paradoxically--can result in shifts in the scale. More importantly, it focuses on diabetes care that results in better self-care. This approach uses MI as its counseling foundation. A free client handout will be provided and reviewed. Led by Megrette Fletcher, MEd, RD, CDE, author of the new Weight-Neutral Diabetes Counseling and Education Activities: Helping Clients Without Harping on Weight (16 CPEU/CEU).

Learning Objectives;

  • Describe 2 studies that support a weight-neutral approach to diabetes care.
  • List two reasons why a weight-neutral approach is important in diabetes care.

  • List three ways the counselor can help adopt a weight-neutral counseling approach.
