Centered on an evidence-based process for guiding change, Lifestyle Wellness Coaching, Third Edition CE Course, offers a systematic approach to helping clients achieve enduring changes in their personal health and wellness behaviors through a supportive and forward-moving coaching relationship.
Lifestyle Wellness Coaching examines real coaching conversations to assess key considerations, such as the types of questions to ask, how to provide feedback effectively, and how to facilitate action planning. The course and included text present communication strategies to motivate, guide, inform, and support clients’ processes toward personal change with a holistic approach. Other issues explored include developing a trusting relationship, creating goals that are aligned with coaching processes, unblocking clients’ energy and discovering resources for change, and generating forward movement through the skillful use of the International Coach Federation’s 11 core competencies.
Lifestyle Wellness Coaching introduces you to models that clearly identify clients’ progress through the stages of change. First, the course explores the popular transtheoretical model (TTM) of health-related behavior change and its delineation of six stages of clients’ readiness to change. The discussion of TTM includes strategies appropriate to clients in various stages of readiness to change. The course also presents the learning-through-change model (LCM), revealing the deep layers beneath each phase of client movement toward change. Learners are offered a map for coaching clients toward goal achievement. The authors’ unique flow model of coaching illustrates how professional coaches can help clients navigate the sometimes turbulent events of a person’s life in order to change habitual patterns of behavior.
Lifestyle Wellness Coaching CE Course, Third Edition, is the definitive resource for those seeking to embrace wellness coaching and propel clients to healthy, effective change.
