Why This Course Bundle is Essential!
These two courses will enhance your weight neutral counseling, and it is perfect if you are looking for guidance to increase your client’s awareness of body cues such as hunger, fullness, and satiety without attaching these behaviors to weight loss for people with diabetes.
Join me as we learn how to use Motivational Interviewing in a weight neutral way to counsel people with diabetes.
This course bundle is both Part 1 and Part 2 of WN4DC Mini-counseling course.
These two course will allow you to practice the micro skills of MI, diving deep into the essential skill. In total it will provide 6 CPE from CDR.
I am super excited to share with you how to reduce food fears and counsel clients on how all foods fit. Together we will discover how to overcome fears of weight shifting and weight gain by promoting size acceptance and exploring size diversity. This course will answer the question how to explore enjoyable movement for health, well being, and blood sugar control instead of weight loss! This is a really accelerated program which uses Motivational Interviewing as the counseling theory, and it will show you how to incorporate a non-diet, patient-centered approach to diabetes care.
You will get so much from Part 1!
This mini counseling course is loaded with information. First you will get five videos that explain the five common counseling aspects of weight neutral care as it related to diabetes.
Each video comes with a handout to identify the deep-seated desire of your clients, allowing you to hone your counseling skill. What makes this even better is that these handouts will let you practice the Motivational Interviewing skill of Reflection and Open Ended Questions, or OEQ to uncover lasting motivation!
Transform The Way You Counseling Clients
Connecting with your clients is the best way to grow your business, increase the value of your department, and evoke change. This course will show you how to remove the invisible barriers that prevent forming collaborative relationships which honor the client's autonomy and self-direction.
What are the 'basics' anyway?
Weight Neutral care can be something of an enigma if you are unfamiliar with core understanding. This course has identified five counseling themes which are explored by using MI. What is even better you will get a chance to watch and practice two key skills - Open-ended Questions and Reflections, OEQ. The intention of this course is to accelerate your practice by using the foundations of weight-neutral diabetes care and motivational interviewing.
How this Mini-Course will Help You
Using these five areas will help you hone in on the desire for change. Connecting with your client’s desire, without falling into the trap of diet culture, transforms your counseling session. Tapping into your client's motivation, and not into the expectations and pressures of society surrounding food, eating, diabetes, and body image is what this mini-course is all about.
