This task is a continuation of the activity that you completed in your Culinary Coaching 1 module. We have provided the intake form you can use to assess your participants for the activity you will organize (in-person or virtual). You are tasked to organize a small group visit with a minimum of 4 participants with an established diagnosis of either hypertension, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, obesity, arthritis, depression, or other lifestyle-related conditions. You may choose to organize a homogenous group (composed of participants with the same health conditions) or a heterogenous group (composed of patients with different health conditions).
The session may run in a minimum of 2 hours that should start with an orientation of what the activity is all about and a description of the group visit mechanics:
Introduction of participants with a brief overview on why they joined the session.
Reading of your objectives (we hope to see your objectives aligned with the goals in the module)
Distribution of the form that you have previously collected (Forms should be given and filled up prior to the session).
Short lecture discussion focusing on Food as Medicine Jumpstart. Provision of reading materials would be beneficial to sustain attentiveness and interaction among participants. This is the best way to practice the culinary coaching principle that you learned from this module.
Allow each participant to give a brief reflection on their goal in specific behavior change. Your role is to support and affirm the positive level of confidence and help redirect negative perspective and.
Choose some recipes to demonstrate for hands-on food preparation before you end the session (remote kitchen if done virtually).
End the session by congratulating participants for a successful workshop and encourage them to adhere to their behavior change.
You have to document the session by taking video clips or photos of your group activities. Organize your materials for submission, including the forms filled up by your participants and your reflective summary.
