Student research paper


The Stress Management Podcast Capstone Project sought to answer the question of how I might raise awareness about integrating holistic mental health services into my health coaching practice. This relevant topic centered on developing an innovative solution by drawing together two opposing perspectives from public health opinions and holistic health mindset. Launching a podcast proved to be a creative means for offering value to all stakeholders involved. Listeners received free holistic stress support, community and mental health professionals gained additional tools for their clients, while I established myself as an expert on mental health coaching. Exercising emotional intelligence regarding the sensitive nature of the topic was essential. The project best fit the action approach as it was a new professional obligation for me. Results included eight total listeners for the four podcast episodes. The podcast project successfully concluded with positive outcomes from a small but enthusiastic audience.
