Personal resilience is made up of the skills, resources and vision to move forward in life despite complex challenges.
Family resilience is based on the personal resilience skills of each member of the family, and on the family’s collective resilience skills. Families are the very foundation of society, providing children and adults the essential framework and skills to build a happy and resilient life.
This course provides coaches with the concepts, practical knowledge, essential skills and strategies to develop a successful coaching practice with clients dealing with day-to-day family and parenting issues. You probably coach clients who are parents and deal with a busy family and work life, multiple demands and challenges, and too little time and energy. Whether you coach parents with young families, teens or adult children; whether your clients are two-parent, single parents or blended families, you can help them develop realistic, respectful strategies to support them and build family resilience.
In this course, we will take an inside-out approach: you will learn, as you apply new skills into your life and to your coaching practice. You will have the opportunity to experiment with small actions that powerfully impact resilience, mental (and physical) health, and quality of life. You will help your clients (and yourself) build and support a strong mental & physical health foundation to resilient living. This in turn will help you grow and broaden your coaching business.
Family resilience is about moving forward, not repeating the past:
Prepare your clients to deal successfully with multiple life challenges instead of dealing with the avoidable aftermath. Empower them to take the lead on their life and to build healthy, resilient families with clear positive parameters, self-confidence, healthy beliefs and attitudes matched by behaviors, discernment and triage, and supported by adequate energy… and less stress. Help your clients acquire a multi-functional life skillset and build resilience, one day and one step at a time, instead of wishing and hoping that their family life will improve… someday.
Family resilience coaching provides parents and family a positive approach, with the framework, inspiration and how-to to best support growth and resilience. As coaches, we can help parents define what makes resilient, healthy parenting; identify and practice the qualities and skills that create a secure, loving structure that supports growth, connection, intimacy and independence.
Family resilience is about thriving – not about coping. It’s about envisioning what matters most and triaging out what matters less; recharging essential resources to thrive, and helping your clients define, build and live respectful, mutually fulfilling relationships and family.
Family resilience is a fast growing area. Complex family roles and dynamics, conflicting information and little guidance can be confusing and many parents are at a loss about how to improve family function and dynamics. There is a growing need, expressed by parents, coaches and teachers that they need a new mindset and better skills to grow and support mentally healthy, resilient children to adulthood. Family resilience coaching provides this positive approach.
This essential, practical course will enhance your coaching skillset to foster healthier, stronger, resilient parents, children, relationships and families. You will learn what makes parents, children and families resilient; identify obstacles to resilience; and work with parents to improve parenting skills to foster and support positive family dynamics in an atmosphere of respect, accountability and growth.
