Attend a Training Online!

Attend a Craving Change™ Professional Training Workshop without having to leave your office or pay travel expenses. Learn about the Craving Change™ program where and when it works for you and at your own pace.

Our Professional Training Video takes you ‘behind the scenes’ of the Craving Change™ Facilitator’s Manual, presenting innovative, practical strategies that you can immediately deliver to groups or individual clients in your practice. Watch, listen and participate as the co-founders of the program walk you through the Craving Change™ program resources and activities and share their tips and expertise. The online workshop modules provide opportunities for you to self-reflect and practise the concepts and strategies that you will learn. You will be able to complete the online  Craving Change™ Facilitator Certification Exam as you review the videos.

Skills you build with our training will enable you to:

    • Describe the Craving Change™ program clearly to clients and colleagues
    • Understand the psychosocial aspects of eating and how to explore them with clients
    • Feel comfortable using the Facilitator’s Manual with groups or individuals based on the key messages and step-by-step instructions
    • Apply cognitive-behavioural theory responsibly and effectively to problem eating
    • Use the wide variety of counselling and group facilitation tools provided in the package with confidence
    • Coach clients to identify their individual internal and external triggers for eating
    • Help clients understand and use strategies for changing problematic eating
    • Follow-up with clients using suggested activities to reinforce sustained behaviour change
    • Apply components of the program in various formats including individual
      counselling

Access to the full online video training program is included with the purchase of the Complete Facilitator Certification Package or a Clinic/Organization Package. Clinicians who have purchased a license with Craving Change Inc. between 2008 and 2012 are able to purchase access to the video and certification with the Training Video & Certification Exam Package by contacting our Resource Coordinator at orders@cravingchange.ca
