Childhood & Adult Obesity Archieve

Searching for resources and information related to adult and childhood obesity interventions to kick-start your wellness programming efforts? Look no further. I've tried to gather a number of very useful and trusted sources via the links below to get you started. Clinicians will need to assess the client's motivation to enter weight loss and severe obesity therapy; determine the clients degree of activation and readiness to implement the plan; and then take appropriate steps to motivate the client for treatment and support them in developing well-formed outcomes along the way.

Though the focus here is on the individual, policy and environmental change initiatives relative to making healthy choices in nutrition and physical activity will be the main determinants for the population as a whole. Long term success in combating obesity will hinge on making healthy options and environments in multiple settings—communities, schools, work sites, and health care facilities— available, affordable, and easy to integrate into everyday lifestyles will likely prove to be the most effective path.
