Breaking the Silence: Navigating #MeToo in Coaching

During her conversation with host Dr. Jessica Singh, Christine shares her personal journey and what inspired her to advocate for #MeToo as a coach. We discuss the importance of self-awareness for coaches and health and wellness professionals, emphasizing the need to understand trauma-informed care and ethical standards. Through Christine's insights, we uncover the power of conversation in driving positive change and creating a safer, more equitable world for everyone.
