Utilizing the Miracle Question in Weight Control Treatment

Obesity is a growing epidemic that increases morbidity-related health risk factors. As the overweight population increases, so does the need for treatment options. Studies show that individuals who undergo weight reduction treatment utilizing nutrition and behavior modification have greater long-term success. This paper will discuss the obesity epidemic and therapeutic applications for treatment. The writer developed a training to increase trainees’ skill and understanding in identifying and assisting discouraged clients in a weight loss environment. The workshop will train them on different ways to use the miracle question and specific times when this technique could be most effective. The training will further the trainees understanding of visualization, encouragement, and solution-focused therapy techniques to optimize applications for weight control.
