Training Video: Introduction and Evaluating Legal Risk

In this video, CEO and Founder of the Center for Health and Wellness Law, LLC, Barbara Zabawa, introduces the training modules and talks about how to evaluate legal risk. For most businesses, but especially for health coaching, decisions are made based on how much the business owner can tolerate legal risk. This training video explains that decision making process so you can feel comfortable moving forward.

Training Video: Legal Foundations

In this training module, Attorney Zabawa gives you a crash course on basic legal concepts such as lawsuit terminology, the hierarchy of different types of law and how those sources of law may impact a health coaching practice. This module is a critical first step in fully understanding subsequent modules.

Training Video: Legal Entity Options & Insurance

Are you wondering what type of legal entity is best for your coaching practice, or what types of insurance you need for your coaching business? Then don’t miss this training module. Attorney Zabawa explores the differences between LLCs, Sole Proprietorships, S-Corporations, and C-Corporations and which ones might be best for a health coach practice. She also covers different types of liability insurance that a health coach may need, and makes some recommendations of insurers at the end.

Training Video: Scope of Practice

One of the biggest legal risk areas for health coaches is making sure their practice stays within the bounds of health coach practice. Though health coaches may not be regulated by any government authority directly, they must still pay attention to state licensing laws and other laws that can lead to legal trouble if violated. In this training module, Attorney Zabawa explains the different licensing laws and other state laws that coaches should be aware of when deciding what services to deliver and how to market those services.

Training Video: Data Privacy & Telehealth

Most coaches collect data from their clients, often through telehealth platforms, but may be unclear as to what data privacy laws apply to their practice.  This training module covers the applicability of HIPAA and state privacy laws to health coaches, and discusses whether telehealth platforms may offer sufficient data security protection. Health and wellness coaches will leave this training module with a much better understanding of your data privacy and security obligations.

Training Video: Contracts and Intellectual Property Law

As a health coach, you will (and should) be entering into written contracts with different stakeholders, such as your clients, other companies, and employees or independent contractors. This training module explains the basics of contract law and what agreements are important for a successful health and wellness coaching practice. The training module also covers intellectual property basics, such as trademark, patent and copyright and when or whether health coaches should be investing in protecting their intellectual property.
