In this webinar, Sam will discuss:
What is the Behaviour change approach?
How do we work in a person centred way?
Some examples from my own dietetic practice
NICE guidance recommends the use of 'evidence-based behaviour change techniques' for example behavioural therapy and motivational interviewing. NICE highlight three important features for effective interventions: goal setting and creating an action plan providing feedback and effective monitoring exploring social support.
For behaviour change to be facilitated well, good communication skills are vital as this plays a huge role in the outcome. This includes both verbal and non verbal communication. It is also essential that practitioners are given the training and supervision needed to be able to incorporate behaviour change into their practice.
