- Brief summaryGroupcoaching is an instrument to enhance important qualities for effective life style interventions. It is not a medical or psychological intervention, but a way to stimulate coping, self management and patient empowerment in the treatment of obesity in children. In this study the effect of groupcoaching will be measured compared to the bench mark treatment, eg: dietary and physical activity intervention.
