    I found the curriculum to be pushing the "Teens and Diets: No Weigh" program more than teaching practical tools to use in working with teen clients.

    too simplistic

    Old studies which seemed to be used only to push a point. very basic, common sense information. did not learn anything.

    The studies used to compile the text were from the 90's. I also was very disappointed. With this topic being a national concern today, why can't you find, provide current data.

     

    ACE RESPONSE: Thank you Bonnie for the helpful feedback. We will look into updating this course.

    I am so sad! This course references studies consistently taken in the '90s.. and our teens have a significantly more challenging hill to climb since then. And the ideas are outdated! You should really update this course.. I REALLY needed this for my practice and I found myself correcting your text vs. learning what I needed to learn. And the test? Horrible.. the wording was like taking a driver's license exam... twisty turny questions.

     

    ACE RESPONSE: Thank you Victoria for the helpful feedback. We will look into updating this course.

    I did not learn anything of value during this section. Answers were obvious and unhelpful.

    The references are 20 yrs old and probably out of date. I don't trust the half of the materials provided in the book.
