The Counselors' Guide includes updated Pediatric Weight Management Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guidelines and addresses various behavior-change strategies, including goal setting, contracting, reinforcement, self-monitoring, stimulus control, cognitive restructuring, and relapse prevention. Two counseling approaches are featured: the Transtheoretical Model, also known as Stages of Change, and Motivational Interviewing.

The client education materials include 53 fact sheets and worksheets, and a tracking tool that can be printed on demand or downloaded to electronic devices and used when counseling overweight or obese youth and their families. These materials may be used in a variety of settings, such as outpatient clinics, private practice, and group weight-management programs.
