Elevate your skills in exploring the intersections of appetite with your clients

  Enroll in Course

Appetite awareness can be a complex concept to introduce & explore with our clients, particularly given the cultural narratives around hunger, fullness, food, eating and bodies.

Build skills & confidence with this short course which will step you through each stage you might cover with your clients, from concepts to practice. We'll dig into some of the tripping points of each step, and I'll offer some tips on navigating some of the trickier discussions we may have.

This course includes:

  1. Approx x 1 hr total audio recording of all material, guiding you through each step
  2. Appetite Awareness reflection script, and audio recording
  3. Appetite Awareness activities you can use with both individuals & groups - pick up and run with it!
  4. Hunger-fullness "scales" of various styles, to adapt and use as suitable for your clients or groups. Both blank & examples of completed worksheets provided.
  5. Satiety scales - blank and examples of completed worksheets provided
  6. Downloadable printed copies of all materials, including copies of the slides used.
  7. Resources for further reading & exploring

After this course you will leave with:

  • A sound understanding of how hunger, fullness & satiety intersect, and inter-relate
  • More confidence in having conversations about appetite in the context of your clients lived experience
  • Insights into facilitating appetite awareness activities with individuals & groups
  • Resources you can take into practice with you, straight away
