Group Sessions

MOVE! Group Sessions are a resource for clinicians who facilitate MOVE! weight management groups.

Content and format for the 16 sessions is based on the latest evidence and updates from the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), and the recently published VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guideline for Screening and Management of Overweight and Obesity

Some of the key points include:

  • One consistent coach for all 16 sessions to improve participant success
  • Support and participation from a behavior expert (such as the Health Behavior Coordinator)
  • Enhancements and updates to overall content
  • A "closed" group of participants (i.e., Veterans start and finish the program together)
  • Fixed start and end date

The Facilitator/Coach Guidelines document provides guidance for conducting the groups. Each session includes a general outline, discussion points, physical activity break, and relevant handouts covering a variety of nutrition, physical activity, and behavior topics.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to view the files.
