Establishing and maintaining positive relationships with family, friends, and workplace colleagues can be challenging when balancing multiple professional and personal responsibilities. This session presents an overview of the different types of social support and highlights three approaches that health and wellness coaches or healthcare providers can use to guide the conversation about the importance of cultivating strong social well-being with their clients.
