Dive into this review of the flood of information, sometimes conflicting, around nutrition and physical activity. Each participant will take responsibility for a dynamic investigation of a popular element for each category. You will become our team expert in that category as we learn effective, research validated techniques for sharing the information in ways that effect behavioral outcomes. You will discover elements of Motivational Interviewing, the behavioral coaching technique developed by William Miller. 

Key Learning Objectives

  • Participants will develop a solid working overview of current research on nutrition and exercise for youth.
  • Participants will develop one area of expertise each for nutrition and exercise for youth.
  • Participants will build skills for coaching youth on healthy choices using Motivational Interviewing strategies.
