Information meeting the 12 th of April 2018:Well-being coach training.

The well-being coach training has been developed to help practitioners from different fields to promote physical, mental, and social health and well-being through a person-centered method.

The person-centered well-being coach certification program has been developed in collaboration between the Center for Well-Being at Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis and the non-profit organization Anthropedia Foundation. The program has been designed to prepare helping professionals for work in the field of preventive health and well-being. The graduates are experts in lifestyle transformation, stress management, and growth in self-awareness. The person-centered well-being coach training addresses calls from world health organizations and governments to change public health promotion strategies to reduce health care costs and to help an aging and longer-living population make informed choices about their own health. People, both sick and healthy, need assistance in changing their lifestyles.  The graduates work in a variety of environments: community centers, clinics, hospitals, the fitness industry, corporations, schools, and other health care venues.

 A person-centered well-being coach helps individuals become healthy, positive, inspiring, productive and resilient when they face stress and challenges in their lives.
