BioDash – coaching experience

By Dom Frederico

The BioDash coaching experience was one that was very valuable to myself and also the other year 11 students that participated. We assisted a group of Year 9 students on a 2-3 week basis with setting their goals for their academic, sporting and social lives and offered our tips for how to best approach the methods of mindfulness, breathing and imagery.

Each Year 11 student worked with a group of around seven Year 9 students. With the groups only being small, it was a great environment for us to further enhance our coaching skills and our knowledge of the BioDash program.

I was lucky enough to attend the 6th World Congress on Positive Psychology at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre last Saturday with Dr Swann and discuss the BioDash program with professionals in the field of positive psychology from all around the world. I was a part of a discussion panel with Professor Dianne Vella-Brodrick and spoke to around 25 people.
