Change Talk: Childhood Obesity

Change Talk: Childhood Obesity


How do you collaborate with patients and families to elicit and strengthen their motivation to change their health behaviors? How do you work with patients who are not sure they want to change?

Change Talk: Childhood Obesity™ is a role-play simulation where you take the role of a healthcare provider and engage in a practice conversation with a virtual mother and her child. Through the conversation, you learn to apply Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques to help them identify motivation for change, supporting them to implement changes in their diet, screen time, and exercise.

Motivational interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based and patient-centered method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change health behaviors. Numerous studies show that health providers can use MI as a counseling technique to collaborate with patients to explore their feelings of ambivalence about change and then guide them in setting goals and developing a plan. Rather than just telling patients what’s wrong or what they should change; it’s instead about listening to what they feel is important and helping them find their own motivation for change.

Change Talk: Childhood Obesity™ was developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics™ and Kognito™ and is designed for many types of healthcare providers, including pediatricians, nurses, family physicians, and nutritionists.

Really great training. Worth playing more than once: the conversation is surprisingly deep, and the characters look and sound great. Makes me wish there were more training programs like this!
