Wellness Programs

Online | Onsite | Telephonic Programs

AdvantageHealth understands the importance of targeting high risk behaviors through coaching and other wellness programs. We also realize that organizations require various modes of delivery for programming — our solutions include onsite, online, phone based and direct mail targeted behavior change options.

 

ONLINE PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

AdvantageHealth offers a wide variety of online behavior change programs from Selfhelpworks™ as a part of their LivingLife™ Series. These programs empower individuals to apply the insights that they learn from the program, remove barriers, create possibility and keep them focused on their behavior change vision. 

ONLINE PROGRAM OPTIONS: 

  • LivingEasy™ – Stress Coping Techniques: In small quantities, stress is good. It can motivate you and help you be more productive. However, too much stress or a negative stress response can actually harm your mind and your body. LivingEasy™ helps you implement calming techniques and build fulfilling relationships.

  • LivingLean® – Weight Management: Most choices about eating are based on the way you feel about food. LivingLean will change your mindset and feelings about weight loss. You will start seeing and feeling differently about food, your health, and the possibilities that are available to you through living lean, healthy, and free.

  • LivingFree® – Smoking Cessation: You will discover new techniques that change the way you think about the smoking cessation process. These techniques are very different from any program you’ve tried. LivingFree treats the root physical and emotional causes of smoking and eliminates the psychological barriers that have kept you from succeeding in the past.

  • LivingSmart™ – Alcohol Management: You will learn how to become an ex-drinker without feeling deprived. LivingSmart™ teaches you how to take control, eliminate the psychological road blocks, and change your emotional relationship with alcohol.

  • LivingFit™ – 90-day Walking Program: Most of what you do on a daily basis is a function of habit. Some habits are productive, while others do not contribute to well-being. One thing all habits have in common is that once they are established, they become automatic. The LivingFit™ 90-Day Walking Program makes exercise an activity that you anticipate and enjoy daily so it becomes a regular part of your life.

  • LivingWell™ – Diabetes Management: There’s no question that people with diabetes need to integrate healthy habits and patterns into their lifestyle, such as a positive attitude, eating well, regular exercise, regular check-ups and taking medications. But the challenge is in developing those healthy habits, patterns and perspectives. LivingWell is a unique, scientifically-based online course that teaches participants how to truly transform the way they think about and manage diabetes – not just physically but emotionally too. Taught by Registered Dietician & Certified Diabetes Educator, Janice Baker, it is designed to help master the three critical areas of successful diabetes management – emotional, physical, and educational.

Each online program includes the following components: 

  • Instructor: Each lesson is a multimedia coaching session led by a certified trainer. The program trainer motivates, educates, and demonstrates to the participants how to apply the simple but powerful concepts to even the most difficult challenges in their lives. They lay the foundation, process, and track for change.

  • Support: Live programs usually contain a wide spectrum of support options.

  • MP3 Downloads: A series of 13 short motivational support talks are available for the participant to listen to on their cell phone, iPod, or CD player.

  • PersonalCoach™ – The PersonalCoach™ is a sophisticated software program that tracks the user experience longitudinally and provides experience-based coaching appropriately. This is an integral part of the program’s unparalleled interactive nature. Participants complete short confidential surveys before most sessions. Based on how they fill out the surveys they may receive coaching (audio and text) on how to deal with certain challenging situations. They may also receive coaching to keep them or nudge them back on track, or to just simply acknowledge them. They may even get email or PDA feedback if they choose.

  • Internet-Based RealTalkRadio™  Once a week, Selfhelpworks™ holds a live online support group hosted by the instructor or a guest. Users can call, email, or fax in questions, problems and challenges if they would like to get verbal feedback (as if they were in a live group session), or they can just listen. Selfhelpworks™ promotes the sessions weekly to all participants unless they opt out of the reminder.

  • Emails: Users receive up to 50 reminder, motivational, or educational emails throughout the year.

  • Program Manual: At the end of each lesson, reading material, which mirrors the delivered message, is available to print and refer to as desired.

  • Program Exercises: Each session contains actualization exercises (incorporated within the reading materials) designed to bring that lesson to life.

  • Additional Tools: The programs contain a variety of program-specific tools designed to the keep the user experience interesting and valuable.
