Should learning to coach be integrated in a graduate [...]
Ole Michael Spaten & Tia G.B. Hansen
For the first time coaching was embedded in a psychology graduate programme in Denmark. In the programme at Aalborg University the students concurrently followed cognitive-behavioural therapy courses and cognitive coaching modules. Spanning 1.5 academic years (16 full days) the coaching modules include 104 hours of lectures and action-reflection-workshops. Students’ coaching competences were measured pre-mid-term and end course. The results show significant growth on the coaching competence scale and we propose that coaching should be included in upcoming psychology students’ graduate training.
Keywords: coaching psychology, cognitive coaching, psychology graduate programme, research design, self-esteem.
