Program Description:

Maryland University of Integrative Health’s Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Health and Wellness Coaching is at the cutting edge of the wellness revolution, setting the standard for one of the top careers of the decade.

Research shows that health education alone is not enough to inspire people to change behaviors and make positive health choices. Health and wellness coaching is now recognized as a key competency and catalyst that can effect change.

This pioneering program will prepare you with the skills and expertise to empower people to take charge of their own health and create sustainable change. The curriculum focuses on three primary goals. The first goal is the development of a wider view of the field of health and wellness in contrast to our current disease-focused model. The second is to teach coaches to listen to the wisdom of their own bodies and to teach their clients to do the same. The third is to develop both proficiency and excellence in the skills necessary to help clients adopt attitudes and lifestyle changes most conducive to optimal health and other issues that affect health.
