About the Workshop
Are you interested in supporting your clients to change their eating behavior? As dietitians we often assume the mantle of being the experts in nutrition, but are we the experts in helping our clients ‘do things’ differently? After all, we don’t just want our clients to think differently, we want them to ‘do things’ differently right!
Having identified a significant gap in the dietetic curriculum, Shane will challenge our traditional scope of practice, outline the benefits of dietitians being more skilled and practiced in supporting behaviour change, and provide an introduction to various behaviour change models and the associated key concepts that can be used by dietitians when working alongside clients.
This tasting plate of the various models has been priced to give you a broad introduction to behaviour change, and aims to help you identify where your future professional development in the area of behaviour change can be focused – supporting you to move beyond the role of nutritional expert and information provider.

Shane Jeffrey APD ASD
BSc., Grad Dip Nut and Diet
Dietitian – Eating Disorders, Weight Management (non diet and weight neutral approach), Sports
Graduating from QUT in 1993, Shane brings a wealth of clinical experience spanning more than 20 years as a dietitian working across the private and public sectors.
Specialising in the fields of eating disorders and weight management (using the non diet and weight neutral approach) for much of his career, Shane is a recognized leader both nationally and internationally. With a strong person centred approach to his work and a passion for empowering people to help themselves, Shane is a big believer that as dietitians, we need to move beyond the what and the why, and focus more on the how as we support the process of change for the people we work with.
Shane’s passion in this area sees him lecturing to dietetic students across a range of subjects, including behaviour change and motivational interviewing and continuing to develop his own counselling skills.
