Health Coach Certificate

Summer 2018 Health Coach Classes

Emory Continuing Education’s 16-week Health Coach Certificate Program – approved by the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHWC) -- combines self-paced learning (online/live and recorded classes) with independent and mentored coaching practice. Curriculum includes health-related topics covered by experts in diabetes, cancer survivorship, older adults, heart health, exercise and movement, healthy eating, mental health, pain, and work-life balance.

Program topics will include:

  • Theory and practice on the structure and process of creating change, as well as key elements to behavioral change
  • Health and the mind-body connection
  • The role of culture and belief in health and wellness
  • Powerful motivational interviewing skills
  • Active listening and mindful awareness, including Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
  • Positive psychology theory for health coaching
