AcademicAddiction.Com is proud to announce its' Live Webinar Course to become a Certified Life and Wellness Coach.

Miami, FL (PRUnderground) May 1st, 2015

AcademicAddiction.Com is proud to welcome Dr. Karen Wolfe and Deborah Kern as the instructors for this course.  This training introduces ten specific Life and Wellness Coaching Skills. Life and Wellness Coaching is a step-by-step process moving clients towards their life and wellness goals.

The coaching relationship empowers the client to create permanent changes that have been difficult to do on their own. It provides Addiction Professionals with the skills and tools to build a positive environment that focuses on a client’s strengths, rather than deficits.

In Life and Wellness Coaching, we look at the basics of coaching. We’ll review the key coaching skills that you can use to successfully support your clients to take action.

Coaches partner with their clients to design the life they want, bring out their clients’ own answers and resources so that they can achieve purposeful lives. By creating clarity, coaching moves the client into action, accelerating their progress by providing greater focus and awareness of all the possibilities which exist to create fulfilling lives. Standing on this foundation, the coach’s responsibility is to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable
  • How does coaching differ from therapy ?

While coaching and therapy share some similarities, psychotherapy often focuses on the impact the past has on the present, on healing psychological dysfunction, and on relieving emotional pain. The therapist is considered to be the expert, the one with answers about what is right for the client.

Coaching focuses on the present and future, the client’s strengths, life purpose and goals, working with clients to create possibilities to enrich their life. Coaching assumes the client is expert, able to determine what is best for their lives.

The Life and Wellness Coaching Certification will teach you how to facilitate behavior change via a structured, supportive partnership between coach and client that will;

  • Set both long term and short term goals
  • Facilitate commitment to act on these goals
  • Set action plans and monitor progress in attaining goals
  • Develop strategies to utilize strengths most effectively
  • Create focus and momentum
  • Celebrate achievement
  • Reveal obstacles
  • Maximize the potential of the client
  • Achieve the client’s desired outcome
  • Written commitments to fulfill action plan
  • Tracking of progress
  • Accountability for commitments
  • A structured, supportive environment
  • Step by step approach to action
