Because I feel strongly that everyone should at least know the basics of the Non-Diet Approach, this course is FREE.


The Non-Diet Approach for Dietitians 

(Self-Paced, $199AUD) 

This is the self-paced online version of The Non-Diet Approach Workshop for Dietitians, Day 1.

This foundational course is designed to teach you about the Non-Diet Approach and weight-inclusive, weight-neutral dietetic practice. By the completion of the course and assessment items you will have demonstrated a nuanced understanding of how to apply the Non-Diet Approach principles in your practice. It covers a lot of ground, from the evidence against weight-centric approaches, to the evidence for weight-neutral approaches, from the philosophical underpinnings of various established frameworks to the application of practice principles using the Nutrition Care Process. There are assessment items if you wish to test your understanding and receive a Certificate of Completion.  

You will not need any further resources for the course as the book 'The Non-Diet Approach Guidebook for Dietitians' is reproduced in the course materials. 

Cost: $199AUD


If you have previously done our full day face-to-face foundational training and would like to use the online course as a refresher and perhaps to undergo more formal assessment of your understanding, you are more than welcome to! The cost for 'refresher' access for 12 months is $80AUD. Please contact me directly for details about how you can do this - [email protected] - thanks!

The Science of Self Compassion

Unpacking Weight Science

(Self-Paced, $99AUD)

The research about human body weight is mountainous. Most people accept unquestioningly that weight and health are closely linked. The assumption that increased weight causes poor health outcomes is widespread in medical and cultural discourse but the reality is much more interesting. This course will help you to learn how to 'unpack' weight related research, be it weight loss intervention research, obesity research, or population-wide epidemiological studies, in order to interpret and discuss findings for their actual value, while weeding out weight biased rhetoric. Also covered is an overview of weight neutral interventions which incorporate health promoting behaviours, enhanced body image and self acceptance.

This course is self-paced and should take approximately 5-6 hours to complete. It is suitable for all healthcare providers and health researchers. The learning content consists of videos and written materials. The assessment tasks include quizzes to check your understanding of important concepts and reflective tasks to consolidate your learning. Upon successful completion of the assessment tasks you will be issued with a certificate of completion. Please note: this course is for educational purposes only and is designed to enhance your skills in human weight-related research appraisal. It is not a clinical intervention program.

Cost: $99AUD
