Facilitating Behavior Change (2nd Ed.)

Change is a complex process — and not just for your patients with diabetes.

Facilitating Behavior Change As diabetes education continues to evolve from providing patients with knowledge and skills to facilitating self-care behavior choices, diabetes educators are faced with reevaluating their role and function in the educator-patient relationship. There are greater demands on today's diabetes educators to develop new skills and teaching strategies to better understand health behavior theory, what motivates diabetes patients, what creates barriers to change, and what strategies can be employed to facilitate behavior change.

Facilitating Behavior Change is an online course that addresses the challenges today’s diabetes educators face and provides a solid foundation of core knowledge that diabetes educators need to update or refine their skills and strategies to deliver appropriate self-management training to their patients with diabetes.

Topics include:

• Theoretical approaches to behavior change
• The changing dynamics of the educator-patient relationship
• Selecting and using person-centered communications skills and strategies
• Developing an appropriate facilitation style
• Understanding barriers to change
• Recognizing readiness for change in their patients
• Adapting skills and strategies for one-on-one and group sessions

Delivered in four easily-accessed online modules, this self-study course offers:

• Module 1: Behavior Change and Diabetes Self-Management Education
• Module 2: Skills, Styles, and Strategies
• Module 3: Using Skills, Styles and Strategies to Facilitate Behavior Change
• Module 4: Identifying and Overcoming Barriers to Change

This interactive course reinforces learning with:

• Interactive exercises
• Audio interviews with practicing diabetes educators addressing the challenges of facilitating behavior change in practice
• Video case studies
• Multiple-choice and short-answer quizzes with automatic feedback
• Pre-module self-assessments
• Post-module action plans

- List and describe the core counseling theories useful in providing person-centered counseling
- Demonstrate skills and strategies of behavior change counseling
