Now you can get the support you crave, deepen your knowledge, implement learning, and meet with peers and seasoned professionals at an affordable price. This live, small group coaching program will accelerate professional growth for HAES aligned healthcare professionals interested in Weight Neutral Diabetes Care, Mindful Eating, Motivational Interviewing, and Disordered Eating counseling.

How This Coaching Community Works

You will choose from 6 different coaching programs that cover four themes. These topics are offered in both a concentrated or year-long format. More extended coaching programs are focused on continuous support and growth, where shorter, more concentrated coaching programs are focused on understanding and applying learning concepts of a specific topic.

For example, The Disordered Eating Behaviors in Diabetes, DEB-D, is offered as both a year-long session and a concentrated one-month option. While these sessions are focused on the same topic, what they provide to the coachee is very different. The year-long program offers a greater chance to explore and address the nuances of counseling while developing their unique approach to disordered eating in diabetes care. Additionally, a year-long session provides a community to support professional connection and growth. 

The concentrated one-month option for coaching in Disordered Eating Behaviors in Diabetes, DEB-D, is ideal for professionals trying to assimulating knowledge and technique in this area.
