Next Step Announces Upcoming Teleclass Training

Penelope Valentine, CC

August 30, 2006

For those professionals currently working with parents of a struggling teen or young adult, or those wishing to enter the field,   NEXT STEP FOR SUCCESS® offers a teleclass COACHING PARENTS OF STRUGGLING TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS. 

Many parents are seeking alternatives to the therapeutic model and coaching has become a viable option when they are looking for support, empowerment, education and guidance.  Specialty schools and programs have recognized this trend over the past few years as the coaching profession has had increased visibility.  Many schools and programs are attaching the title of 'coach' to those staff with direct contact with their parents/clients.  The coach can also hold the dual position of a therapist or a counselor. 
Increasingly it is being recognized that the coaching profession has a credentialing and certifying process.  Parents and consultants are becoming more aware of this professional industry standard of ethics and practices and are now inquiring as to the certification of staff. 

At NEXT STEP, we are committed to increasing the level of professionalism in the field.  This course provides preparation and guidance leading to the coach certification exam as conducted by the International Association of Coaches, OR the teleclass hours can be applied towards certifying requirements by the International Coaches Federation.
This 20-week teleclass especially designed for specialty schools and programs will be offered for the third time starting on Tuesday, October 17, 2006.
