CCH courses have been specifically developed for Health professionals who are interested in advancing their understanding of obesity and developing more practical methods for the management and treatment of obesity. The course is most suitable for GPs, doctors, nurses, physicians, surgeons, physiotherapists, dieticians, nutritionists, psychologists, and counsellors running weight-management clinics.
This course reviews emotional and psychological issues around eating and obesity to explore the possible aetiologies that affect an individual’s eating behaviour, reviewing research that claims neuronal pathways leading to addiction are influenced by food. The impact of obesity in childhood, on both short and long term mental health and well being will be reviewed, along with parental influences.
Consideration will be given to the effects of social stigmas attached to being overweight, and their impact on the ability to lose weight and maintain that loss. The course also considers the need for compassionate communication and Motivational Interviewing in discerning the patient narrative, and some of the possible treatment options, that help to support and sustain change in eating behaviour.
