Work With Children Who Wish To Deepen Their Skill Base

It is the perfect choice for anyone who suspects they might want to pursue in a career in child psychology but does not yet feel they are in complete possession of the facts of what the field entails.

Child psychology is the study of how a young person develops from birth up to adolescence. How he changes emotionally through that time, how his own identity is formed and how he will eventually learn to be able to speak a language. It examines how a child evolves through the processes of information processing and cognitive development.

Behaviourally it looks at how a child begins to understand social behaviours and integrate accordingly. It investigates how motor skills develop, social skills and how identity is formed.

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is ideal for those who wish to take their first steps in pursuing a career in child counselling or who are currently working in counselling but would like to specialise in this area.

It provides detailed information on the reasons children may require the services of a child counsellor, the techniques used to support a child through fears and anxieties developed through experiencing trauma, and the training path you will need to follow to become qualified.

This course also provides parents with an in-depth understanding of the work of a child counsellor and how they may be able to help their child, should they require it. You will learn how to actively listen to your child and notice the typical signs of trauma and how to go about finding a counsellor who is right for you and your child.
