In this course, you’ll explore how to help them set meaningful, valuable goals by asking questions to determine whether they have a personal stake in their accomplishments. You’ll also review theories on behavior change and the principles of lifestyle modification, as well as strategies to implement them in relation to physical activity and weight management. Understanding self-monitoring and relapse prevention techniques for health enhancement will help you improve client adherence.

You will learn:

  • Why goals are essential to executing behavioral change
  • Principles of lifestyle modification
