Belmont, MA - McLean Hospital, the largest psychiatric affiliate of Harvard Medical School, announces its second annual coaching conference: Coaching in Medicine & Leadership on September 25 and 26, 2009. Jointly sponsored by McLean and Harvard Medical School, the conference will bring together the international founding contributors in the field to introduce executive coaches, physicians, psychologists, health professionals, and coaches in healthcare, to the theory, research, applications, and practices of coaching psychology and its application in the domains of executive, life, and health/wellness coaching.

According to Philip Levendusky, PhD, ABPP, director of Psychology at McLean, the 2008 conference sold out in record time and proved to be among the largest and most successful education programs organized by McLean. "There was an obvious void in the executive coach and healthcare communities with regards to science-based coaching and positive psychology," said Levendusky. "We have never experienced such a high demand for a conference or such positive feedback following an event."

Carol Kauffman, PhD, ABPP, PCC, clinical staff associate for McLean and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, who co-directs the conference with Margaret Moore, MBA, a veteran of the biotech industry and founder of Wellcoaches Corporation, says that the 2009 conference has been expanded, bringing more keynote speakers as well as tracks devoted to both coaching in leadership and coaching in healthcare. Both are co-directors of the new McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School Institute of Coaching which will be announced soon at www.instituteofcoaching.org.

The 2009 conference highlights include:

McLean Hospital is the largest psychiatric clinical care, teaching and research facility of Harvard Medical School, an affiliate of Massachusetts General Hospital and a member of Partners HealthCare. For more information about McLean Hospital, visit www.mclean.harvard.edu.
