SSEHS Active, part of Loughborough University’s School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, is offering its Promoting Health Behaviour Change training to anyone with a responsibility for promoting healthy lifestyles and working with individuals either one-to-one or in groups.
The course is based on the concept of solution focused practice, which focuses on helping individuals discover how to achieve their goal(s) rather than trying to fix the problem(s) that they may currently have. This approach treats the patient/client as the expert on their own life. Practitioners ask questions to help them begin moving towards the future they want and make positive changes in their lives.
This course explores how practitioners can ask the questions that really get to the heart of the issue and come up with creative ways to help people find their own solutions.
Professionals with a responsibility for promoting healthy lifestyles would benefit from this course, including:
- weight management specialists
- health visitors
- drug and alcohol workers
