Weight: A New Perspective: Professional Training
Our flagship training has been developed as a collaboration between owner of Evolution Nutrition, Emily Delconte and owner of All Foods Nutrition, Shira Hirshberg. Together Emily and Shira have a combined 25 years’ experience working with patients in 1:1 nutrition counseling.
Research has proven that weight stigma and body shame itself are risk factors for disease, possibly increasing risk more than body size alone. We know that conversations about weight can be difficult for providers and patients, and even the most well-intentioned conversations can go awry. Unfortunately, we’ve seen first-hand that the side effects of these well-meant conversations can be severe. The side effects our patients report to us include re-starting cycles of restrictive eating followed by binge eating, crying in the car after a medical visit, decreased self-esteem, emotional eating, body shame, and avoidance of future medical visits.
This training will provide an in-depth look at the research on dieting and weight, followed by ways to reduce weight stigma for your patients as well as practical tips for navigating conversations about weight during appointments.
This training is 60-90 minutes long and can be provided virtually to your team of healthcare providers. For availability and more details, please fill out the contact form below and we will be in touch.
