Access Education


Today’s recovery counselors are being asked by their employers to include wellness and specifically nutrition education in their comprehensive services to their clients.  For many practicing clinicians this is a difficult and unfamiliar task.  Of all counselor tasks on your "plate," no topic needs a more engaging and motivational approach than the topic of client nutrition in early recovery.  This webinar will focus on clinical methods and topics that avoid familiar "bad" and "good" labeling of foods and drinks and provides a strengths-based approach to addressing your clients’ nutrition needs.  This should not be a topic to dread in your service delivery, but a topic that should follow all the motivational aspects of good comprehensive substance recovery counseling.

Learning Objectives
  • Gain an understanding of the overarching principles of Early Recovery Nutrition.
  • Review methods to assist clients with identifying their present positive food behaviors (strength based).
  • Encouraged to use existing counseling skills related to stages of change and change talk in their motivational strategies to educate and assist clients with personal nutrition.
