Powerful Conversations to Lead the S
hift from Weight to Well-being





Learning Objectives:

1. Define four key principles of the weight-neutral approach. 

2. List three fundamentals of powerful conversations. 

3. Identify four parts of a specific communication framework for leading the shift from weight to wellbeing.  

Brief Overview:

Despite decades of conclusive evidence that traditional weight-focused, “eat less, exercise more” interventions are ineffective, counterproductive, and potentially harmful, many individuals and organizations continue to invest in them. Fortunately, the tide is turning. As empirical evidence continues to accumulate, recognition of the need to adopt a weight-neutral, health-centric approach expands. Health, medical, and wellness professionals can lead this paradigm shift by effectively communicating this message with patients, clients, colleagues, community members, and organizational leaders. This can be challenging work because the weight-centric paradigm is deeply entrenched so many people will be resistant to considering an alternate approach. During this session, we will clarify the core messages of the weight-neutral approach to health and provide strategies for combining evidence and powerful questions in persuasive conversations that help shift the paradigm from weight to well-being.
