HHE5453 Weight and Body Image for Health Coaches

Course Description

Individuals frequently seek out health and wellness coaches to lose weight and/or change their body shape/size. However, the evidence is overwhelming that weight-loss diets are ineffective long-term and often harmful. Moreover, body dissatisfaction is a growing and insidious problem in U.S. culture. In this course, health coaches learn how to work from a “do no harm” perspective to promote these clients’ long-term health and wellbeing. Coaches will also learn how to recognize more serious conditions, such as depression, eating disorders ,and body dysmorphic disorder, as well as how to refer appropriately.
