Jacque Contant, RD CD
Clinical Outpatient Dietitian
Salt Lake City, UT

 
"I have been interested in this subject for years. However, I couldn't justify spending the money for a program when I first started as a dietitian. But as years passed, I found myself still drawn to the subject. As my next recertification cycle was about to begin, I reconsidered. I'm currently in long term care and the style of counseling a resident is quite different than counseling for a weight loss client. The motivational interviewing was such a valuable tool. Role playing was a bit awkward and difficult, but it will be fun to practice as a general life skill."
