The Transtheoretical Model of Change - CEU-eligible


Karissa Doree and Brittany Entrekin

Life Skills Advocate, LLC

The Transtheoretical Model of Change is an effective tool in evaluating a client's readiness to see and address areas in which they may need growth. In relation to executive functioning, this resource helps clients, coaches, and other support providers assess which part of the client's goals and needs can be reasonably approached, and what kind of timeline is feasible to assign to the goals.

This presentation will:

Teach attendees to assess a client's readiness to change and its impact on client goal-setting.

Help attendees help their clients discover their clients' values and goals in regards to the Model of Change.

Demonstrate SMART goals and the Eisenhower Decision-Making Grid and how those connect to the Model of Change.

Karissa Doree has lived in the Seattle area for eight years, working as a supervisor for a a healthcare information management company. In December of 2021, her close friend and co-coach Katie encouraged her to apply to Life Skills Advocate. Despite being unfamiliar with the coaching profession, Karissa immediately felt a close-to-home relationship and calling to the mission statement put forward by Life Skills Advocate. She has been coaching and taking on additional tasks and duties since the beginning of 2022, and enjoys furthering her knowledge and skills working with the neurodivergent community.

As someone diagnosed with ADHD and OCD, Brittany Entrekin believes wholeheartedly in the benefits of executive functioning support and guidance. As a coach, Brittrany focuses on shame-free mindsets and goal-oriented strategies to help clients navigate growth. She has a background in both academics and social work; that experience has been integral in shaping her passion and approach with coaching.

Chris Hanson founded Life Skills Advocate when he noticed a lack of neurodivergent-friendly support in the school system. Both his own ADHD and his experience in the school system have helped inform the structure of Life Skills Advocate. Clients' individualized needs are evaluated and prioritized at Life Skills Advocate. Life Skills Advocate utilizes a client-centric model of coaching so that the client can collaborate with the coach on their goals and strategies.
