Description

Enrollment in this course is restricted. Students must submit an application and be accepted into the Certificate in Health & Wellness Coaching in order to register.

The Health & Wellness Coaching Practicum is designed to help students further their coaching skills outside of the classroom setting. Students acquire and complete a minimum of 30hrs with volunteer clients using learned health coaching techniques. Over the 6 month program, Practicum meets monthly as a small group led by a certified coach serving as Practicum Advisor. During this time, students implement and practice coaching skills, and receive feedback on their effectiveness from fellow students, clients, and faculty. Additionally, students continuously practice self assessment and reflection processes, which are critical for continued growth as coaches.

To pass the Practicum, students are required to submit a client session, documentation of coaching hours, and a self assessment paper. A successful client session demonstrates the student coach meeting the coaching competency guidelines established by the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHWC).

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • Develop their health coaching techniques through observation and interaction with volunteer clients
  • Demonstrate effective communication skills when coaching clients
  • Apply strong interpersonal skills to client interactions
  • Assess client health concerns and goals
  • Implement an individualized health coaching approach
  • Appraise professional strengths as a health and wellness coach and areas for improvement
  • Develop specific health coaching competencies as prescribed by the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHWC) and the International Coach Federation (ICF)
