OPP at the 14th Portuguese Congress on Obesity


The Ordem dos Psicólogos Portugueses (OPP) was represented today by member of the Board, José Lucas, in the opening session of the 14th Portuguese Congress on Obesity.

The OPP raised awareness on the understanding psychologists have about the process of changing lifestyles and adopting healthier habits, as well as the capacity to develop strategies for sustained change. The inclusion of psychologists in multi-task teams in treating obesity is essential, as well as in its intervention and prevention.
