Suggested CDR Learning Codes: 5370, 6010, 6020, 6070; Level 2

So many people go through the annual ritual of making weight loss and fitness part of their New Year's resolutions. Some of the more dedicated ones even take the next step of joining a gym, signing up for fitness classes, and consulting a dietitian for help to adjust their eating habits.

But what about dietitians themselves? How many RDs examine what they've been doing in their practices and make their own New Year's resolutions to better counsel those seeking help for weight management and maintenance?

imageIn, "New Year, New Attitudes: Resolutions for Counseling Weight Management," noted expert Susan Burke March, RDN, LDN, CDE, presents a program to "counsel the counselors." She'll provide insights on evidence-based practices shown to help adults and adolescents adopt healthy weight behaviors, including developing good listening skills and assessing clients' motivation.

In addition to helping counselors adjust their own beliefs regarding weight management, Susan will cover some interesting developments in the "diet" industry and how to help clients locate and utilize available resources that will assist them in achieving their weight-related goals.
