The Ph.D. in Mind-Body Medicine: Specialization in Integrative Wellness Coaching draws from contemporary research and applied practices in coaching, lifestyle medicine, and mind-body approaches.

Some of these approaches include:

  • Biofeedback
  • Meditation
  • Complementary medicine

By completing the required coursework in this specialization, students also complete the Certificate in Integrative Wellness Coaching. The Certificate in Integrative Wellness Coaching is approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF) for 69 hours of coach training and is also an approved transition program by the International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaches (ICHWC).
