The Graduate Certificate in Family Life Education and Coaching prepares students to work with parents, professionals, and families as both family life educators and family life coaches. Family Life Educators (FLE) are strengths-based professionals who provide preventative research-based education to families in organized efforts designed to impart information, skills, experiences, or resources to strengthen, improve, or enrich their family experience. Family Life Coaches (FLC) partner with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires families to maximize their potential, reach goals, and achieve healthy relationships. Required courses are designed to strengthen the student’s understanding and application of the critical aspects of family life coaching and education, including a strengthened understanding of the fields of coaching psychology and family life education. The 12-credit graduate program can be completed entirely online.
