Coaching and Positive Psychology - PSYO963

Coaching is a relatively new and rapidly expanding approach to achieving rapid and lasting change. It has been enthusiastically embraced by practitioners, organisations and individuals and is used by coaching, organisational, clinical, health and counselling psychologists. This unit introduces students to the key theories and research underpinning coaching and positive psychology. It differentiates coaching from counselling, therapy and mentoring. Topics covered include the basics of motivational interviewing, the developmental pipeline, coaching micro-skills, ethical issues as they relate to coaching, the use of positive psychology in coaching, and coaching throughout the career span. Students interested in vocational counselling, leadership coaching, or employee coaching would find this unit useful.
