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.

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.
