EBT for Science-based Diabetes Prevention
The stress epidemic in the U.S. is fueling rates of obesity and diabetes. In developing a program for stress overload for a national prediabetes prevention program, nutritionist and health psychologist Laurel Mellin, PhD created a skill set that could be used by all RDs in their clinical practices. Her evidence-based approach, Emotional Brain Training (EBT), has been presented at FNCE, at past Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Meetings and at many state dietetic association meetings. You can learn how to teach 15 techniques based on EBT (and have access to one handout for each in your clinical practice) through participating in this practical, exciting two-hour program. Use these simple, highly-effective tools to surprise and delight your clients and transform your practice of nutrition to be in alignment with the latest brain science.
Upon successful completion of this two-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Describe the root cause of overeating, overweight and diabetes based on brain circuitry.

  • Use brain-based resiliency techniques for switching off the drive to overeat and promoting behavior change.

  • Apply techniques for creating a sense of joy and purpose to improve adherence to changes in diet, exercise, and weight.

  • Develop a plan for implementing these tools into your nutrition practice.

FOR CDCESs: This Course Qualifies for CE Credit!

To satisfy the requirement for renewal of certification according to the Certification Board for Diabetes Care and Education (CBDCE, www.cbdce.org), courses must relate to diabetes and be part of the list of recognized providers of the CBDCE. The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) is listed as an CBDCE recognized provider. Because Dietitian Central has been granted accreditation by the CDR, it therefore meets the criteria as an approved provider of CEs for CDCESs by the CBDCE. The CBDCE does not directly approve continuing education for any specific webinar or self study course.
