When people become disillusioned with the traditional weight paradigm and come to weight-inclusive care providers to explore alternatives to diet culture, they show up with a lot of ambivalence. The conversations between helping professionals and their clients are powerful ones, capable of supporting or inhibiting the innate change process that is alive in all of us. Relying heavily on the sharing of research, information and advice to “convince and persuade” people to choose Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size®, or Body Trust® does little to help people change. Motivational Interviewing is a person-centered, guiding method of communication and counseling to elicit and strengthen intrinsic motivation for change. This five-week online program will build on concepts over time and offers:
A common-sense approach for supporting people in making meaningful, lasting changes in their lives
Lively discussions to deepen understanding of the paradox of change and the spirit of Motivational Interviewing
Practice activities for skill building using breakout rooms
A combination of principles, skills, and strategies to help strengthen people’s commitment to change and increase the likelihood of change.
