The text covers communications, counseling, interviewing, motivating clients, delivering oral presentations and using media in presentations.   Communication is basic to the relationship that the Registered Dietitian (RD) professional has with their clients.  The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognizes the importance of communication skills for practitioners to promote health, disease prevention and treatment.  Providing people with information on what to eat is not enough, the RD must also promote and facilitate behavior changes to more healthful food choices.  The text incorporates the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) and model, including four steps of nutrition assessment, nutrition diagnosis using PES statement (Problem, Etiology and Signs/Symptoms), nutrition intervention, and nutrition monitoring and evaluation. The PES statements are the most critical in that the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has been stressing this as an essential component of their standards and requirements. The text uses activities, case studies, self assessment questions, web references and graphics  to engage the student and drive the content home.        ·         Judith A Beto, PhD, RD, FADA is the lead author.·         The Nutrition Care Process is now included in chapter 1 for those who wish to include it in the case studies.·         The Appendices contain the standardized language for the Nutrition Care Process from the International Dietetics & Nutrition Terminology (IDNT) Reference Manual.·          There is one case study per chapter with others available on thePoint.·         Motivation is integrated into appropriate chapters rather than a separate chapter.·         The cultural and life cycle chapters are expanded based on market feedback.·          Chapter content and references are updated.Dedication Preface              Chapter  1        Guides for Nutrition and Dietetics Practice            Chapter  2        Communication                      Chapter  3        Interviewing               Chapter  4        Person-Centered Counseling                        Chapter  5        Stages and Processes of Health Behavior Change              Chapter  6        Counseling for Behavior Modification                     Chapter  7        Counseling for Cognitive Change                 Chapter  8        Counseling Through the Life-Span             Chapter  9        Communication and Cultural Diversity                    Chapter 10       Principles and Theories of Learning             Chapter 11       Planning Learning                  Chapter 12       Implementing and Evaluating Learning                    Chapter 13       Group Facilitation and Dynamics                  Chapter 14       Effective Oral Presentations             Chapter 15       Using Instructional Media      Appendix A: Nutrition Assessment and Monitoring and Evaluation Terminology  Appendix B: Nutrition Diagnostic Terminology  Appendix C: Nutrition Intervention Terminology  Index
