Take Courage Coaching has been the leader in chronic pain coaching for the past ten years. Over that time we have developed a method of reaching those that have no hope of regaining the life they once had. Every day our coaches are helping others learn the science of pain, providing tools on how to manage it and get their life back.
This program will dive deep into what it means to be a pain coach. It’s an intensive 12 week program that is a mix of education and practical application of chronic pain that meets twice a week. You will benefit by having instructors who are also coaches and work with pain clients every day.
The first class every week (2 hours long) will be a structured class that covers coaching and pain topics. The second class every week (1 hour long) will be group coaching training and will be student-led. Development of skills will include how to effectively coach one on one with a pain client and how to lead groups of pain clients with plenty of role play and mentor feedback.
Upon completing the course, you will receive a certificate of completion, which qualifies for 36 NBHWC board approved CEU’s if you are already an NBC-HWC. You will receive your Certified Pain Management Coach (CPMC) certificate from TCCU after graduating from this course and passing your NBHWC exam.
The course is entirely online and requires a phone and a reliable internet connection for all classes.
The goal of this program is to provide the student with training in chronic pain coaching through education, practice, and mentoring—a process that is challenging and fun. Coursework, reading, homework, mentoring, and practice coaching people in chronic pain prepare the student to be a competent, confident pain management coach who understands chronic pain and the tools necessary to help clients get back to living life.
You will experience how to coach as well as diving into coach theory, Motivational Interviewing(MI), and neuroplasticity.
