(Spring 2019)

Online

Section Information for Spring 2019

Students will learn effective strategies for coaching themselves, other individuals, and teams to optimize their well-being. Students will combine personal online learning experiences in self-study and self-reflection so that they know how to become more strategic about their own practices of self-care and self-compassion, and will also practice sharing these compassion-based coaching strategies interpersonally with their fellow classmates during in-class sessions. Students will also learn strategies for bringing mindful movement and meditation breaks into their school day, to optimize their engagement and well-being, and will conclude the course with eligibility to take the National Board of Medical Examiners' exam for health and wellness coaching, through Dr. Carmack's affiliation with the International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaching.

This is a hybrid course with five Saturday classroom meetings from Noon to 6 pm (February 9 & 23;  March 9 & 23; April 6) plus online modules throughout the semester -- giving students the unique opportunity to take five half-day retreats throughout the course of the semester.

Satisfies the writing intensive requirement in the major.
