Introduction to and principles of Behaviour Change

Facilitator: Dr Kirsten Whitehead

This course, held at the BDA office in Birmingham,  is designed for dietetic practitioners at all levels, wishing to develop or enhance their knowledge and skills in relation to promoting behaviour change with service users. It is ideally suited for registered dietitians returning to practice or those who desire to update their knowledge, assistant practitioners, or support workers.

This one-day course is a mix of theory and practice. It will introduce the subject of behaviour change and the person-centred approach including some of the evidence base and policy. There will also be some practical activities to help develop your communication skills for working in a person-centred way. 

There will be time spent introducing more advanced skills such as motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural strategies. You will leave having reflected on how you work and with ideas on the next steps to develop your skills further.
