Deep Dive Discussion: Your Most Challenging Counseling Questions Answered (Recording)
Do you struggle with how to best counsel clients on sensitive topics? We’ve been there too. In fact, these situations arise often when working within the infertility and prenatal arena. Questions such as:
- How do I best counsel a vegan/vegetarian client on prenatal nutrition?
- What do I do with clients struggling with body image and weight before and during pregnancy?
- How do I set realistic expectations for the timeline and results with my infertility clients?
Instead of dreading these conversations, or worse, avoiding having them at all, learn some proven strategies to confidently and accurately address these issues directly so you can help your clients achieve the best outcomes.
In this 1-hour deep dive discussion, Lily Nichols, RD, CDE and Ayla Barmmer, MS, RD, LDN will tackle these questions and other counseling scenarios you are struggling with. Leave with tangible, practical tools to make your counseling easier and more effective.
