Building a coaching practice involves practical arrangements of time, place and context. This is a "how-to” seminar where the techniques of coaching will be placed within the context of a coaching practice. You'll look at specific strategies and techniques such as: listening, goal-setting, opening, expanding and focusing discourse, questioning techniques, transfer of training, relapse prevention, consultation and termination. You'll review record-keeping systems and forms such as coaching information sheets, parental consent, and session notes. You'll discuss assessment of child and parent needs, goal-setting and re-setting, and making and remaking agreements for how to work together. Ethical issues will also be addressed.
