About the Course

Counseling and coaching are two important tools, typical of the psychological profession, for the user’s empowerment. They can be applied both in personal and working life, but the professionals not always have that adequate practical “know-how” that allows them to be completely operative and avoid the risks of an improvised job. The course proposes practical tools and techniques to be used both in private and business environment, focusing on self-awareness form experience and giving useful theoretical definitions that are useful to define an operative path. Sources come from cognitive-behavioral and socio-systemic psychology with a strategic approach and some hints from dynamic psychology, merged with Loy’s experience in the field and specific education on coaching & co.
