Each year we review the Facilitator’s Manual to ensure that it continues to provide current and relevant information. Until 2017, the edits we made were very minor, for example changing references to the Behind the Scenes Resource ‘CD’ to ‘USB wafer’, which is now the device that is included with our ‘starter kit’. However, based on new information that was published in 2017 and that is related to evidence-based content in the Craving Change® program, we wrote some edits to the manual that affect all licensees. To keep things simple, and affordable, these edits don’t necessitate that licensees purchase a new manual. Rather, we have provided background information and ‘cut and paste’ content replacement documents that will give licensees everything needed to update their Facilitator’s Manual content.
Therefore, we recommend that all Craving Change® licensees update their Facilitator’s Manual in the Eating Under the Influence of the Environment and Eating Under the Influence of the Body sections. These documents are available in the Updates & References section of the Certified Facilitator’s Resource Library and are also posted below. The 2018 edition of the Facilitator’s Manual will include these edits.
