Exploring wellness trends and sharing ideas among peers

Together we will explore “big picture” wellness, current trends in the wellness field and how to discuss health and wellness from a holistic viewpoint. We also have fun connecting with other participants from around the country and learning how they plan to use their certification.

Expanding upon theoretical approaches to wellness

We will focus on several theoretical approaches to wellness coaching including the Transtheoretical model of change (behavioral change models) and motivational interviewing and skills.

Addressing the various areas of coaching

We  will discuss different areas of coaching such as: independent wellness coaching; corporate wellness coaching; coaching within a physical therapy clinic, doctor’s office, yoga studio, recreation center, integrative health practice and more.

Setting goals with clients

In addition, we will talk about the role of temperament in setting goals that fit the specific client’s unique temperament and have fun learning about the influence our own temperament plays on our coaching style.

Practicing actual coaching with peers

In order to be an effective wellness coach, you need to practice coaching! Therefore, we will provide ample opportunities to practice your newfound knowledge in stages of change and motivational interviewing skills with real life client scenarios.

Working closely with your own Mentor Coach

Finally, you will have the opportunity to coach a client with a mentor coach listening in to provide specific feedback to you on what is working well with your coaching and what specific things you will want to continue to focus on in your training.

Ten interactive wellness webinar courses (15 credit hours)

As part of certification, you will complete ten webinars on topics of your choice (approximately 1.5 hours each in length).
You choose the webinar topics that best fit your interests, client population and background/experience. We also cover specific client scenarios for each topic and address ways to provide coaching that is consistent with the guiding style of coaching. You will be provided with a handout for each course to use as reference material as well as a 10-question quiz.
