Our goal is to ensure that the Craving Change® program is based on current and reputable research. In 2017, concerns were raised by the scientific community regarding the published studies of Dr. Brian Wansink, whose work has been referenced in the Craving Change® materials. In response to the concerns, some of the content in the ‘Eating under the Influence of Our Environment’ and ‘Renovate Your Environment’ sections of the Facilitator’s Manual and workbook will be edited in new editions of these resources. Updates will also be made for the ‘Eating under the Influence of Our Body’ section to reflect a current review of the literature.
Documents that provide background information, suggestions and the specific 2018 edits to the current Facilitator’s manual and workbook content are available in the online Certified Facilitator Resource Library in the Updates & References section and in previous What’s New Posts. A link to the three-page edit document for the workbook is available below.
As a Craving Change licensee, you may address the edits in any of the following ways:
- Simply modify your delivery and explanation of the information in these sections to your client based on the updates.
- Provide a copy of the ‘cut and paste’ document to your client after you have stroked out the last sentence in the introductory paragraph on page 1. Your client can choose to physically cut and paste the edit into their workbook copy or to keep the document with their workbook for reference.
- Physically cut and paste the revised text into the workbook before giving the book to your client.
