Parents as Agents of Change© (PAC)
Parents as Agents of Change© (PAC) is a 16-session intervention designed for parents of 6 to 12 year olds with obesity. Based on principles of cognitive behavioural therapy and up-to-date research in children’s nutrition and physical activity, PAC was developed to help parents learn about and implement strategies to enable healthier living for the whole family. More than 250 families have completed the 16-session intervention since 2010, and over 95% of parents said they would recommend PAC to other families.
