>> Hi. Thanks for joining me on this journey as we explore the psychology of emotional eating. We're going to start each module with a brief case study. In these case studies, we help you apply what you're learning in a particular module to real life situations. Our goal is to create a more authentic experience so that you feel better prepared to coach clients through these issues. We'll follow three individuals throughout the course alternating from module to module. Now these are just examples of how the coaching process could look. They're meant to help you problem solve, figure out how you might deal with ambiguities, and also connect with your classmates. They're also meant to help bring the material to life through engaging stories that make the content feel more tangible. It's okay if you're not sure about which questions to ask. We learn by trying out different ways of thinking and doing. Make sense? With that said, meet our first case study Renée. Renée is a 27-year-old single female, who recently came to you because she wants to lose weight and she says she's ready to make some positive changes in her eating habits. In going through Renée's Health History, you learn that she works a nine-to-five job as a front desk concierge. Her main health concern is frustration because she has tried all kinds of diets and cleanses in the past, but nothing seems to help, and usually ends up feeling unmotivated and feeling worse about herself. She also struggles with overeating, especially at night. Renée has no history of serious illness or injuries, but she has asthma and experiences a lot of digestive issues, including nausea and gas. Renée is an only child and parents are in good health. They live on the other side of the country. Renée tries to exercise, but she usually ends up not making it to the gym as planned. She says that she isn't much of an exerciser. She loves to cook and enjoys making dinner for herself, especially as she's used to getting takeout at work and her breakfasts are sporadic. Renée often crave sweets and crunchy salty foods, but she doesn't include any major addictions on her Health History form. Renee says that she has noticed that she usually tries a new diet when she feels bored at work and needs a project, but she backs out after just a few days because it's too hard. She ends up annoyed with herself that she couldn't keep it up, which often leads to her throwing in the towel by stocking up on her favorite comfort foods and having a big night in by herself. In the end, this just creates more stress because she feels guilty for taking it too far once again. We'll continue to build on Renee's story throughout the course, and we will return to her in a few weeks. After you finish module one, we encourage you to return to this case study and try applying some of the material. For now, think about where you, as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, might start with Renee as your client. Remember that this module is called Emotions 101. What high mileage questions might you ask her to establish trust and dig a little deeper? How might you start to fill in some blanks? What information stands out to you and what language might you use to start helping her see different perspectives? What areas of her Circle of Life might be less present right now? How might you get her to explore her goals in meaningful ways? What were some insights that came to your mind from these questions? Let us know in the Facebook group, and we'll see you again real soon.
