The Skill-Building Intensive offers students the opportunity to develop fluency and confidence in the steps, skills, and techniques used to help others successfully pursue goals for positive change in their life, work, health, and relationships. This course includes extensive demonstrations and practice sessions, in which students rotate the roles of coach, client, and observer. Together, we will work through each step of the CHANGE model for helping others (and ourselves) to create lasting, meaningful change.
We offer this course in two formats: on-site and online. Students pursuing WBI’s Positive Psychology Coaching Certification can choose either option to satisfy this part of their course requirements.
Dates: March 25—May 3, 2019
