AMA Credit Designation Statement
The American Medical Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of .25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
After completing this activity, participants should be able to:
- Explain the concept of patients’ backsliding (aversive reactions) and why it represents a positive sign in terms of patients’ efforts to make healthy lifestyle changes for themselves and for their children.
- Explain backsliding (aversive reactions) to patients, and then help patients sustain their motivation and continue to progress after they backslide.
- Initiate a conversation with adult patients who are parents/caregivers, discuss the importance of healthy lifestyle choices, and convey the basics of “loving regulation” – a new and effective approach to helping children achieve the long-term goal of valuing their health and taking good care of their bodies.
