(eBook version): Diabetes Counseling and Education Activities: Helping Clients Without Harping on Weight (16 CPEUs)

Brand new! Focus on wellness and healthy habits with your diabetes clients while building strong counseling skills. This truly unique book belongs in every RD's and CDE's counseling library. Megrette's creative genius shines through in every aspect of this book, from the clarity of the language, to the humor of the examples, to the extensive counseling dialogue and just-right activities you can start using with your diabetes clients tomorrow! This groundbreaking book, which uses Motivational Interviewing as its counseling foundation, embraces the newest research in diabetes and obesity: change happens when we release the client and ourselves from numbers on a scale and 'you must do's'. Includes:
  • Why weight-neutral diabetes counseling? Understanding the rationale behind this simple, yet profound approach, and how to convey it to your clients.
  • An effective weight-neutral counseling framework when working with diabetes clients--plus practical tips for using it today!
  • Over 20 innovative weight-neutral diabetes-oriented activities to use with clients--with handouts included! Learn to use The Insulin Knife, The Liver Sponge, the Blood Sugar Rocket, "What About Weight?" and many more with your diabetes clients.
  • Specific counseling dialogue, learning objectives tips and visuals accompany each activity, so you'll feel confident and knowledgeable using each one!
  • Special sections on binge eating disorders and diabetes (which are increasingly prevalent), and how to help your clients

We all know that diets don't work. So why are we putting our diabetes clients on them? This course will help you break free of the weight-oriented mentality for diabetes control and free your clients to focus on wellness and healthy habits.
