Training Format and Delivery
The training is largely experiential & delivered face-to-face in a classroom setting, with breakaway groups practising and implementing the theory, tools and techniques during the five-day training. Large groups, pairs, triads and break-away formats are used during the training to fully engage individuals in an experiential training approach.
Individuals will be coached throughout the training as the approach is student-centred and this allows the coaches to fully experience the empowering nature of individual and group coaching thoughout the five-day training.
Individuals will be required to attend 13 hours of online classes following the training if they wish to complete the CPRC certification with U-ACT. This is to track progress, engage in self-assessment and also be able to give and receive feedback. Following the training there are a number of practical requirements for a coach to complete assessment and certification with U-ACT.
The training is highly interactive and experiential with participants being given a chance to work practically and experientially with the tools and techniques that are introduced during the five-day course. These learnings willbe deepened and explored during the online classes and practical requirements following the live training event.
By the end of the course, the coach will:
- Understand the systemic nature of the environment in which recovery wellness coaching takes place.
- Use powerful questioning and listening techniques to empower themselves and others through the coaching conversation.
- Understand the role of coaching in the South African environment, with a holistic approach towards individual and team synergy and wellness.
