Example Video #3: Agenda Setting
Here’s an example of agenda setting with a patient in the Planning Stage of Change.
– Remember the motivation is already there; know it’s time to figure out the specifics of how to carry out these big goals.
– Have the patient suggest what they think might work for them; this promotes buy in as the patient agrees and has more confidence that this plan will work for them.
– Again, there is no need to spend time convincing the patient that they need to lose weight if they already agree with you!
