Description / Abstract:


This book is a combination of experiences in which I have been involved over my professional career. It brings a combination of ideas together that include methods of communicating, strategies for behavior change, ways to assess problems, and methods to facilitate self-management. The concepts presented in this book have been tested in a variety of clinical trials where lifestyle change was needed to determine if dietary change affected disease.

The goal of lifestyle change as presented here is to maximize the patients' abilities to tailor a strategy to their current situation and make a major and lasting change that improves health over time. Sections in this book present ways to facilitate change in different age groups based on clinical trial work.

Examples of dialogues that occur with specific age groups of patients illustrate what might actually happen as counseling for change occurs. Innovative ways of communicating are presented with new strategies for facilitating the patients' ways of dealing with stress as eating habits change.

In general, this is a text for the practitioner and student who strive to help the patient change in a tailored fashion that potentially assures success relative to maintenance.
