The Personal Change Fitness Program is an online, blended learning program that will help you:

  • satisfy CPD requirements while adding real value to your social work practice
  • gain a deeper understanding of the change process and where clients most need help
  • be more confident in your social work practice as you learn the latest research on how people successfully navigate the change process
  • develop your own change fitness and improve your ability to handle change
  • discover new Australian tools and resources that can help you assess change fitness, and will support you in helping others develop more of it

This Program is based on the latest research into the change process and personal change fitness. It consists of 12 units to be completed over 12 weeks. Each unit comprises a short video, a quiz, and reflective questions. This is to be completed in your own time, and you will have regular one-on-one contact (zoom/skype/phone) with your change fitness coach/trainer.

24/7 email support throughout the program

This is a quality training program accredited by the International Coach Federation and used in association with UTAS .

  2. Develop skills in identifying change fitness through a client's language and behaviours
  3. Learn how to help clients overcome change fitness barriers
