This online course is presented by the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Medicine and the Departments of Physiology,University of Pretoria.
The course is designed to provide an introduction to the neuroscience approach to coaching within the organizational and personal context. It will explore what brain-based coaching is, what makes it different from other coaching methods and how it delivers professional and personal results faster in a sustainable manner.
The two primary modules are Neurophysiology and Psychophysiology.
Successful completion of the course will enable qualifying delegates to receive credits for the following module:
The aim of the Neurophysiology module is to demonstrate knowledge of the basic anatomy and functional structure of the central and peripheral nervous systems. The delegate must be familiar with the mechanisms that enable us as humans to sense changes in the external and internal environments, how the information is relayed along specific pathways towards the spinal cord and/or brain where meaning is given to the incoming information, stored and where appropriate action is formulated, and the pathways that will carry the information back to specific muscles and organs to elicit a specific response or reaction.
The primary aim of the Psychophysiology module is to provide learners with knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of Psychophysiology. In order to attain this aim, attention will be paid to the extent at which key elements of certain psychological processes interact with the physiology of the human body.
The course overviews the advances in neuroscience which now provide guidance for the development of a new view of health and performance.
The course is presented online. Delegates can complete the course in a minimum of 3 months.
