Advanced Wellness Coaching

School of Professional Psychology and Health IHL 6052 2.00

Building on the coaching fundamentals taught in the prerequisite course IHL 6060 Integrative Wellness Coaching, this course will deepen the student’s knowledge and skills for coaching clients in lifestyle improvement. Students will learn techniques and professional-development protocols for working with clients recently diagnosed with health challenges such as diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease. The course includes instruction in establishing appropriate referral systems and coach-support communications with licensed health-care personnel. Taught through a combination of webinars, online materials, and telephonic training sessions, students will practice advanced behavioral coaching strategies for helping clients go beyond compliance with lifestyle medicine prescriptions, and address ambivalence, strengthen resiliency, and engage in overall wellness planning.
