Fall 2022 Webinars

 

While a significant amount of importance has been placed on behavioral interventions for managing obesity, more often than not, weight loss is followed by weight regain for a variety of reasons. However, habit-based interventions have shown tremendous promise for weight loss maintenance. In this webinar, Nicholas Frye, MS, LCPC, CHES® will discuss factors leading to weight regain, explore the Dual Process Model and how it relates to our understanding of weight regain, and provide four habit-based interventions you can use with your patients and clients to help them overcome this ubiquitous challenge.

More than 1 in 3 U.S. adults suffers from insufficient or poor-quality sleep and these sleep problems are associated with obesity and other chronic disease outcomes. Behavior changes can be as effective as medication in addressing sleep problems, but providers lack experience in how to screen and counsel patients. In addition, healthcare practitioners working in weight management frequently do not include sleep screening in their clinical assessment. Join us to learn about the relationship between sleep and weight, acquire simple and readily accessible tools to screen patients for sleep problems, and learn behavior-based strategies to incorporate immediately in your practice.
