They are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life."   Given the identification of SDOH, we assert that coaching is a social resource for health , with the potential to improve social capital in disadvantaged populations. Through this authentic generative relationship, coaching can be a stabilizing force and the core driver of behavior change.  Coaching for Mental Well-being - 8 CECs Attend in our virtual classroom with real-time instruction. Cost:  $595 There is no health without mental health. We believe it is critical to support coaches in navigating the complexity of the human experience, including emotions - small and big. Having an awareness of the continuum of psychological well-being prepares coaches to work within the spaces of healthy, reacting, and injured; knowing when and how to refer when a client is experiencing emotional pain. ​   NBWHC Continuing Education Requirements Once all requirements are complete, a Certificate of Attendance will be provided to student.

"I find myself thinking about which part of my brain I am using during many activities and am involved in throughout the day. It is knowledge I have never had before and it puts me more in touch with my overall self. I foresee that I can help my clients understand where they are imbalanced by spending spending too much time in a specific area of their brain versus others. For example, I anticipate most will spend too much time in the "Executive Control" center and not in the more liberating and creative parts of the brain." - Tony Professional Coach Training - 95 CECs Attend in our virtual classroom with real-time instruction and two on-site sessions Cost: $4100 Once you have completed our Core Coach Training & Certification program, start making plans to lift your coaching mastery to a galactic orbit with our nine-month advanced Professional Coach Training & Certification Program.
