- Cognitivebehavioral And Psychodynamic Models For College Counseling - 1,632 words
... um, college campuses appear to be a perfect setting for the use of brief therapy/counseling approaches.

My hope is to land a job as a college counselor at a university where I ...

This article includes many claims about what it takes physically and mentally to eat right and keep a healthy body weight, but at the same time it proves those claims with many facts. The big question is if dietary behavior change is difficult, how can health and nutrition professionals effectively intervene. The author uses the Stages of Change Model as proposed by Prochaska and Colleagues for addictive behaviors ...
