Coaching is a relatively new concept referred to in a variety of ways such as Life Coaching, ADHD Coaching, and Professional/Career Coaching. Principles of coaching are evolving, and various writers and practitioners have begun to elaborate guidelines and strategies for the understanding and practice of coaching. This seminar will focus on coaching children and teens. Some basic fundamental aspects of coaching this age group will be discussed, and emphasis will be on coaching to find their unique strengths and power. The relationship between coaching and child/adolescent empowerment throughout development will be examined, with the goal of maximizing critical periods in cognitive and emotional growth. A variety of coaching exercises are built into the seminar to provide you with practical skills.
