Coaching is one of the fastest ways to improve client-centered care. Are you interested in coaching but want to do it ethically? Are you ready to expand your skills and keep up with current trends to meet client needs? A foundation of being a good coach is being able to embody a coaching mindset. This workshop will teach you how to cultivate a coaching mindset by teaching you exactly what coaching is, how it is different from therapy, and how to bridge coaching and social work.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Define and differentiate between therapy and coaching
  • Define and differentiate a coaching mindset from other helping professional mindsets
  • Explore and identify their own mindset as a social worker
  • Explore and begin to shape their own mindset as a coach as the groundwork to incorporate coaching into their social work practice
