Master Psychology: Coaching & Vitality in Organisations (track)

Psychology: Coaching & Vitality in Organisations (track)

Occupational health psychology

The track focuses on occupational health psychology, more specifically the psychology of interventions that promote the well-being and functioning of people at work. The background, development, and application of work-related coaching and other interventions (including mindfulness) play a key role in this track. Students also learn how to develop evidence-based approaches, introduce interventions and apply coaching techniques.

 

  • Which proactive and preventative steps can you take to ensure “healthy” career development?

  • What can organisations do to contribute to job satisfaction and promote the long-term health and well-being of their employees?

  • How can you return to work successfully and effectively after being absent due to work-related health problems?

 


Questions such as these are explored in the Coaching & Vitality in Organisations Master’s track. 

Important topics in this field are:

  • Individual coaching and work-related counseling
  • Mentoring
  • Employee development
  • Performance improvement
  • Personal development
  • Job satisfaction and vitality
  • Work pleasure and work stress
  • Burnout
