Radical Remission Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training

 

Are you interested in coaching and teaching others how to lay the groundwork for Radical Remission from a serious cancer diagnosis or life threatening illness?

 

My name is Kelly A. Turner, PhD. I am a researcher, writer, and psychotherapist who specializes in integrative oncology. For the past 15 years, I have shared my discoveries about the 10 healing factors common among Radical Remission survivors with workshop participants and coaching clients from around the world. Now, you can learn how to coach your own clients one-on-one and lead your own Radical Remission workshops on the 10 Radical Remission healing factors. 

Our inaugural Teacher Training took place at the Omega Institute in New York in October 2017, certifying teachers from around the globe. That was followed by a second in-person training in New York in September 2019.

This year, the Radical Remission team is excited to offer a virtual Radical Remission “Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training” from September 24 – November 18, 2022.

At the training, you will gather the knowledge and skills needed to successfully coach people one-on-one through the 10 Radical Remission healing factors and to lead an experiential workshop that helps people:

  • Take charge of their healing process
  • Boost their immune system through diet, supplements, and exercise
  • Incorporate a daily spiritual connection practice
  • Increase their sense of purpose, reasons for living, and social support
  • Manage and release suppressed emotions, as well as increase positive emotions

You will leave with the readiness and tools necessary to coach people one-on-one and lead Radical Remission workshops in your own community.

The Radical Remission “Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training” includes:  

  • 8 weeks of pre-recorded video content taught by Certified Radical Remission Instructors, released via email every Saturday starting September 24th 
  • 8 weekly online quizzes emailed to you every Wednesday starting September 28th, plus 1 online final exam emailed to you on Friday, November 18th. (Note: You can re-take the quizzes and final exam as many times as needed in order for you to pass each one).
  • 8 weekly, 2-hour, live, Q&A Zoom sessions led by Certified Radical Remission Instructors every Friday at varying times to accommodate various time zones. The final session on Friday, November 18th will be led by Dr. Kelly A. Turner. (Note: If you cannot attend the Friday sessions live, you will be able to watch the recordings at any time that works for you. Recordings of the Q&A sessions will be posted weekly at the conclusion of each live Q&A). 
  • A complete Coaching & Teaching Manual provided as a .pdf at the start of the training
  • Pending sufficient demand, CEU’s through ICF and NBCHWC, available for an additional fee

After successfully completing the training you will receive:

  • A lifelong professional certification as a “Radical Remission Health Coach & Workshop Instructor,” subject to continuing education requirements
  • A complete set of PowerPoint slides, including presenter notes, for use at your Radical Remission workshops
  • Your professional bio posted on the Radical Remission website, as well as details about your upcoming workshops
  • Access to Radical Remission Workshop marketing materials and sample letters to potential workshop venues
  • Periodically updated slides and materials

“I see people arrive at a workshop worried for themselves or someone they love. At the end, I watch them leave with hope, a stronger sense of community, new friends and a game plan that they can use right away to strengthen their mind, body and spirit.”

Andrea Sexton

Certified RR Coach & Instructor

“The training has opened up doors for me that might not have been possible otherwise. I am very grateful for Dr. Turner’s research and it is an honor to share her work as we help to improve the lives of those we teach.”

Kristi Cromwell

“If you had asked me 2 years ago if I had the confidence to do this, I would have said, ‘No way!’ The Radical Remission Project and fellow teachers have given me the inspiration, the resources, the guidance, and incredible love and support to go for it! Since the training in NY, I have facilitated many community talks, and have run numerous workshops in my local community.”

Justine Laidlaw

“Taking the Inaugural Radical Remission Teacher Training certification class at the Omega Institute was such a profound experience for me on so many levels! We were taught all the materials we needed to move forward successfully as instructors, and by coming together with like-minded people from across the world, we are now a sacred support system for one another, personally and professionally.”

PRE-REQUISITES

In order to be accepted into the “Radical Remission Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training,” you must be proficient in English (especially reading and listening) and then:

  1. Read the books Radical Hope‘ and ‘Radical Remissionby Kelly A. Turner, PhD, available wherever books and e-books are sold, or at your local library.
  2. Take either an in-person or livestream Radical Remission workshop (preferred) or our self-paced RR online course. This is the workshop you will be trained to teach, so it is imperative that you experience it first-hand as a participant. 
  3. Show us that you are already a licensed psychotherapist, psychologist, doctor, nurse, social worker, mental health counselor, or certified coach (from a program accredited either by NBHWC or ICF) by uploading a .pdf or .jpg of your diploma, transcript, or certificate of completion during our registration process. Please note: The Radical Remission “Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training” is meant to provide an add-on curriculum that complements a person’s existing counseling or coaching practice. If you are not one of the professionals listed above, but believe you have adequate mental health counseling experience (e.g., a pastor with 20 years of experience), please email us here first before submitting your application. Alternatively, if you can show us that you have been accepted into a separate coaching or counseling program, we can enroll you in this Fall’s training. However, we won’t be able to provide you with your Radical Remission certificate until you show us that you’ve successfully completed your separate coaching or counseling program. You may enroll in any coaching/counseling program that is accredited either by NBHWC or ICF, but if you need a suggestion, we can highly recommend the Wisdom of the Whole Coaching program, since Dr. Turner knows that program’s curriculum and its founder well.

If you have met all of the pre-requisites listed above and are ready to sign our Licensing Agreement, agree to our Cancellation Policy, and make your payment (either in full or in installments), then we eagerly invite you to:

Dr. Zahra Gharaei completed her Ph.D. in Oncology from the University of Sheffield in 2016. Her research ignited her interest in cancer patient well-being through integrative approaches, which led her to obtain a certification in Nutrition for Cancer Prevention & Longevity from The Health Sciences Academy.

Mana is also certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and a Reiki Practitioner / Master Teacher.

Mana went through her own journey of  surviving cervical cancer in 2009:  due to the strain of virus she carried, Mana had been told by her doctor that she was in the highest risk group.  She decided to incorporate major diet and lifestyle changes, and took many steps to improve her mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.  Although her doctor was quite certain that the cancer would return, there has been no reoccurrence, and at present, no HPV virus has been detected in her body.

Because of her own experience, Mana wants to spread  Dr. Turner’s research to many people in the world.  Her future goals include giving Radical Remission workshops / coaching opportunities to the Japanese-speaking population.

Karla Mans Giroux is a cancer thriver living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Karla was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and underwent a bi-lateral mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. Eleven years later, in late 2014, she received a devastating metastatic cancer diagnosis. With a goal to live to be 100+ this did not align, and so she decided to do all she could to manage this challenge.

Karla embarked on a holistic healing journey to help herself regain optimal health and longevity. She is blessed to report stable scans / “no evidence of disease” since 2016!

Karla became passionate about sharing what she learned so that everyone has a better chance of overcoming the odds. She received her training as a holistic health coach through Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy and is certified through the National Board of Health & Wellness Coaches (NBHWC). She is also a Certified Radical Remission™ Workshop Instructor & Health Coach, and an inspirational speaker.

Karla is passionate about inspiring and teaching those on a cancer journey, as well as those seeking prevention, general health, and longevity. Learning to use the mind and spirit to heal the body is a continuing source of learning, and something that Karla shares with clients.

Liz Curran was inspired to become a health coach after caring for her sister with an aggressive breast cancer diagnosis in 2014. She watched her sister struggle during treatment with feeling powerless to aid her own healing. During that time, Liz believed that there had to be a roadmap out there to guide people to play a stronger role in their own healing. She believes Radical Remission is that roadmap. She later witnessed the power of lifestyle change firsthand, which motivated her to train to become a cancer coach. Liz has been moved to share her experience ever since.
In her practice, she takes an integrative approach to lifestyle change guiding others to release anxiety and cultivate resilience and calm that so often surrounds a diagnosis. Liz coaches her clients to break through limiting beliefs and implement “self-health” techniques to foster a balanced approach to life.
Liz received her certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, as well as the National Board of Health & Wellness Coaches (NBHWC), and the Forks Over Knives Rouxbe Plant-Based Online Culinary School. She enjoys working as a Holistic Cancer Health Coach, Certified Radical Remission™ Workshop Instructor & Health Coach, and Speaker.  ​She is deeply inspired to empower others to find their voice and play an active role in their health and recovery without feeling alone.
