Theories & Techniques of Coaching Psych (PSYC4721)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit details the core theories and techniques of coaching psychology and evidence-based coaching, and the use of coaching as an applied positive psychology. Theories and techniques will be evaluated by reference to empirical research and conceptual analysis. An integrated goal-focused approach to coaching draws on a broad base of established Behavioural Science. Within this framework, primary attention will be paid to cognitive-behavioural and solution-focused theories and techniques of behaviour change and self-regulation, and their application to coaching clients. Each weekly seminar has a lecture component and an experiential learning component. The experiential learning component requires students to evaluate each week's topic in relation to their own personal life experience and to participate in group discussion and coaching practice.
