Webinar: Recent Research in Health Coaching and Implications for Practice (Resource)
Research in Health Wellness Coaching

Health and wellness coaching is expanding in diverse healthcare, employee wellness, and community settings. It is applied for prevention and as a supplement to treatment of diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, heart disease, cancer and other chronic conditions and risk behaviors.

This webinar will provide an overview of the rapidly developing evidence base for health coaching. It will present the conclusions from several current reviews of the effectiveness of coaching as an innovative and patient-centric process. The research covered in the webinar will provide a foundation and knowledge base for health coaching practice, certification in health and wellness coaching, and a rationale for future policy in this area. In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • What is the accepted definition of health and wellness coaching;
  • What are the conclusions from the most current research on the effectiveness of health coaching;
  • How can these conclusions be implemented in practice, education and health policy?
