Whole Health Coaching

About the Course

Whole Health Coaching (69.5 CEUs) training integrates principles of change theory and practice to support Veterans in realizing their health potential.

Course Objectives

After completing this training course, you will learn the following key objectives:

  • Assist the Veteran in developing a personalized health plan that is based on what matters most to the Veteran; the plan is based on the Veteran’s own goals, values, preferences, and lifestyle. The agenda is the Veteran’s.
  • Partner with the Veteran with proactively taking action toward behavior change that is both present and future-oriented.
  • Recognize that health is much broader than the absence of disease. The emphasis is on health enhancements/strengths, rather than disorders/weaknesses.
  • Support the Veteran in achieving their standard of optimal health that takes into account the mental, physical, and social well-being of the Veteran.
