NUTR 6014: Advanced Nutrition Education and Counseling

4 CreditsOnline Available

Effective counseling skills are especially important for clinical dietitians. This course will build off the basic nutrition counseling skills covered in FSCN 3614, and help students develop advanced skills needed to navigate difficult interactions, understand diverse patient populations, and communicate complex concepts in an educational setting. This course is suitable for advanced/graduate-level dietetics students, entry-level practitioners, and seasoned professionals who want to refresh their skills. The first half of the course will focus on Motivational Interviewing, and the second half will focus on several specific patient populations and communication issues that may arise during nutrition counseling sessions. We will discuss establishing rapport with patients who have food insecurity, neurodivergence, chronic health conditions, personality disorders, and challenging family dynamics. You will develop skills and explore these concepts through application by practicing in small group breakout sessions and by completing written assignments.
