Concepts in Health Coaching
Motivational Interviewing (MI)
- MI is an approach to helping people toward and commit to change by exploring and resolving their ambivalence to it.
- Active listening is an important skill for healthcare professionals to master, as it enables them to gain an understanding of their patient’s feelings, needs, and perspectives.
- Positive psychology is a field of study that focuses on the promotion of psychological well-being, the development of personal strengths, and the facilitation of meaningful positive experiences.
- Goal setting is a critical component of healthcare training, as it helps healthcare professionals to define objectives and measure progress.
Stages of Change
- The stages of change model is a widely accepted framework for understanding and addressing changes in patient behavior.
- Outcomes management is a systematic approach to assessing and measuring patient outcomes, ensuring that quality care is delivered in a timely and cost-effective manner.
NSHC’s health coach certification course is designed by clinicians for clinicians and allied health providers working in healthcare and is founded on the evidence of Motivational Interviewing.
Our program is a guided self-study allowing members to study and test on their schedules – no face-to-face time or onsite clinicals are required. Our program provides the clinician the engagement skills necessary to work with clients on either side of the health spectrum…wellness & prevention or those with active disease.
NSHC’s course will transition the clinician's traditional mindset of “Do these things” to that which engages clients in a 50/50 partnership in health recognizing the client/patient is the true “change agent”. Our program provides the conversational and motivational interviewing skills and strategies necessary for the coach to guide their clients to tap into their own motivation to change health behavior. The coach then safely guides that journey, either as preventative or in the presence of disease or disability.
The NSHC has one program, but testing is different for the clinician as compared to the allied healthcare provider (those without a license to practice clinically)
We are an accredited approved continuing education provider through the ACSM, the CDR, and Scully Health Management, Inc.
NSHC’s program is easy to administer because it is a guided self-study and testing is done using one’s own computer. An organization can have its staff trained through the use of this same self-study. It’s a matter of the organization deciding when their staff will start and finish, and how they want their staff to study the material, be it individually or in groups. We provide guidance in this case if the company so desires.
