About the conference:

Coaching in the health and human services field has gained significant traction in the past five years and is having a profound impact on the delivery of services to vulnerable children and adults. Jurisdictions across the country and globally have been implementing coaching programs with much success. In an effort to increase understanding and implementation of this effective learning model, the Northern California Training Academy at the Center for Human Services, UC Davis Extension, will host the first annual National Conference on Coaching in Health and Human Services.

The conference will bring together human services professionals, leaders, researchers, coaches, instructors and anyone interested in learning more from colleagues about the implementation of coaching in health and human services. - UC Davis Extension
