The evidence is clear that the weight-focused approach to health doesn’t create sustainable changes in weight or health--and that it can have counterproductive and harmful consequences for individuals and organizations. But data alone isn’t enough to shift the paradigm from weight to well-being. Health and wellness professionals need to be skilled at integrating evidence into powerful heartfelt conversations. This session will offer five practical strategies designed to help you empower individuals and organizations to move away from ineffective conventional strategies toward a holistic, health-centric approach.
This webinar is a follow-up presentation to the NWI Webinar "Mindful Eating: Shifting the Focus from Weight to Well-being," presented by Rebecca Johnson in October 2015. Participants who did not attend the October webinar are encouraged to watch the recording prior to participating in the March webinar. Information for accessing the recording of Part 1 for no additional fee will be emailed following registration for the March webinar.
Following this presentation, participants will be able to:
- define five strategies for shifting the paradigm from weight to well-being with individuals and organizations.
- identify three sources for retrieving up-to-date research.
- identify at least six impactful open-ended questions to ask individuals or organizations when in conversation about weight-focused initiatives.
