How This Coaching Community Works

You will choose your coaching themes. These topics are offered in both a concentrated or year-long format. More extended coaching programs are focused on continuous support and growth, where shorter, more concentrated coaching programs are focused on understanding and applying learning concepts of a specific topic.

For example, The Disordered Eating Behaviors in Diabetes, DEB-D, is offered as both a year-long session and a concentrated one-month option. While these sessions are focused on the same topic, what they provide to the coachee is very different. The year-long program offers a greater chance to explore and address the nuances of counseling while developing their unique approach to disordered eating in diabetes care. Additionally, a year-long session provides a community to support professional connection and growth. 

The concentrated one-month option for coaching in Disordered Eating Behaviors in Diabetes, DEB-D, is ideal for professionals trying to assimulating knowledge and technique in this area.
