Proposal Focus

Practice

Abstract

Coaching is being used in a number of fields, careers, and situations including in the work of family life. Family Life Coaches enable family identified change through the relationship between the family scientist and the family (Allen and Huff, 2014). From a family perspective, rather than presenting as experts, family life coaches utilize coaching techniques to empower families in navigating normative life stages as well as unique life processes. The mission of the Family Life Coaching Association is to create research-based, globally recognized credentials; training standards; and networking opportunities for family life coaches. This workshop will cover the origins of Family Life Coaching, demonstrate a coaching session, and participants will be able to practice coaching techniques and discuss the direction of professionalizing the field of Family Life Coaching.
