Providing Coaching Services in Private Practice: A Guide for Therapists

Presented by David Steele, MA, LMFT on 09-28-2012 at 9 a.m. Pacific

If you’ve wondered why you keep hearing about coaching and all the excitement it’s creating, if you want to work with a larger network of people, if you're passionate about making a significant difference in the world... you might consider including coaching as a service in your private practice.

This Web Conference demystifies the coaching profession and provides clear guidelines for how you can practice competently and successfully as a therapist-coach.

In this presentation, David Steele, MA, LMFT will answer common questions about coaching, such as:

  • Is coaching a good fit for my practice?
  • What choices are available for coach training?
  • Do I need special liability insurance for coaching?
  • How do I know what is best for those I treat: therapy or coaching?
  • Can I provide coaching and therapy with the same person?

This Web Conference is designed to help clinicians:

  1. Identify at least three significant ways that coaching differs from therapy;
  2. Recognize the major legal and ethical concerns of providing coaching in a therapy practice;
  3. List at least three strategies for determining whether a potential client is a candidate for coaching or therapy;
  4. Learn clear guidelines for providing coaching to those in therapy.
