The programme is made up of a series of workshops and will include modalities such as movies, role-playing and scenario-based interventions as mechanisms to get the learning objectives across.

It will be conducted by Dr Wolff von Auer, a hypnotherapist and author.

Those interested in attending the seminar should e-mail their names and contact details to HPB_MHE@hpb.gov.sg or register at the HPB Booth, S1, at the Health & You Exhibition 2014 before 3pm on Aug 16. The talk starts from 6pm.

She will also talk about eating disorders, and chronic disease management for conditions such as diabetes.

Her role is to improve her patients' quality of life by managing their health through diet.
