Instructional Videos for Health Professionals: Setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals
These videos were created to support health professionals in working through the suggested approach to having a conversation about healthy living with families (see Module 1: Getting Started), using the information and resources in the toolkit. This approach involves the creation of a small, manageable S.M.A.R.T. goal for healthy living. S.M.A.R.T. goal setting has been found to help children maintain focus and provides structure in changing behaviour.
This approach was developed in collaboration with a representative group of health professionals from across B.C., and The F.O.R.C.E. Society for Kids' Mental Health.
