This course introduces students to motivational interviewing (MI) skills, as well as nutrition counseling theories and strategies necessary to help facilitate behavior change. It provides instruction on inclusive and culturally appropriate nutrition education strategies for use across the lifespan. Students will hone their Nutrition Care Process (NCP) skills by conducting nutrition assessments, identifying appropriate nutrition diagnoses, and writing PES statements that are fundamental to creating effective nutrition interventions. Focus of the NCP work will be on nutrition interventions emphasizing education and counseling strategies. Thus, non-DPD (dietetic) nutrition students may take and benefit from this course as well. Students will practice their MI skills by participating in role-play activities in and out of the classroom. Course prerequisite is Nutrition 352. Nutrition 480, 580 and 582 (formerly 597M) are helpful but not required.
