Many healthcare disciplines, including breastfeeding counseling and lactation consultation, use negotiation and therapeutic conversation to give practical advice, encouragement and suggestions to their clients.

This presentation will describe different counseling principles that come from fitness coaching and from hostage negotiation and how they can be used to help improve outcomes for breastfeeding families.
