Promoting health behaviour change is a one-day course being held at Loughborough University in June.
The course is designed to help frontline professionals promote health and wellbeing in routine one-to-one or group consultations with clients or patients.
The course is based on the concept of solution focused practice, which takes a positive approach to empowering individuals to identify what they want to achieve to improve their health. This approach is refreshing as it focuses on helping individuals discover how to achieve their goal(s) rather than trying to fix the problem(s) that they may currently have.
Professionals with a responsibility for promoting healthy lifestyles would benefit from this course, including:
- Weight management specialists
- Cardiac rehabilitation nurses
- Drug and alcohol workers
- Workplace health workers
- Sexual health workers
- Health trainers
- Health at work leads
- Health visitors
- General practitioners
- Occupational therapists
- Community pharmacists
- Exercise instructors
- Practice nurses
- School nurses
