Health Coaching Research

The Masterclass on Health Coaching Research brings together a group of articles, videos, IOC webinars and reports from IOC funded grants to support our members in learning about the state of the science and it relevance to the practice of coaching. Through this Masterclass, one can connect the different resources to achieve a comprehensive and current understanding of the research being conducted in this field. The articles are chosen to represent methodologically strong studies and meta-analyses – some of these are key references published several years ago, while others are very current just coming out of press.  

Health coaching research has been very active, covering different areas of health and illness, coaching physicians and coaching in healthcare organizations. Our recent compendium of health coaching research (Sforzo et al 2017) identified 219 articles meeting inclusion criteria since 1989. Of these, 150 were data-based and we reviewed their characteristics and findings, the remainder were expert opinion or review-style articles.  In the preparation of the upcoming version of the compendium, almost the same number of publications were identified just in the past two years. This illustrates the intensive work going on in health coaching research; in this Masterclass we have selected those that we believe will give a solid foundation on health coaching research and its implication for practice.
