1. Play Therapy: Learn To Become A Successful Play Therapist

Whether you are interested in building your own play therapy business, have a background in psychology, counselling or education and would like to work towards gaining a licence in this area, or are a parent whose child is about to undergo, or who already is undergoing play therapy, and you would like to understand it better, the Play Therapy Course is for you.

Many people who are working in the field of mental health or who have received special training about dealing with children have researched extensively and discovered that development and learning are best brought about as a result of play.

The purpose of play therapy is to help children who have some kind of social and emotional skills missing, learn the adaptive behaviours that are needed to survive socially in today’s world. Furthermore, this therapy technique can also be used to provide children with insight about the problems that they are facing and help them in finding various solutions to these problems. Play therapy is also known to promote cognitive development within the minds of children.

In most cases, it is hoped that children will, as a result of play therapy, learn the different ways in which they can communicate with other people and express their feelings. Furthermore, the therapy technique is also designed to help children in modifying or correcting their behaviour, learn various problem-solving skills that are essential at their stage of development and help them learn how they can and should relate to other people.

To become a play therapist, you need to understand the benefits of its use over other types of therapies and how you can help children with their specific problems. We will show you how you can progress in a career in this area, and what you’ll learn from this course.

The Play Therapy Course is where you will learn all the types of play therapies that are used, such as sensory and embodiment play therapy, dramatic roleplaying, art and crafts, storytelling, sand-pits, and mosaics, and the techniques and applications of each. Also covered is information on how to set up a suitable environment for play therapy.

Students will learn about the psychology behind self-esteem and self-esteem from a child’s perspective. The course outlines how you can use play therapy to improve a child’s self-esteem.

Many of the clients receive will have suffered some sort of trauma. We explain how trauma works, the symptoms, and the consequences of going through trauma. You will then learn how play therapy can help a child overcome the obstacles presented by trauma, and enable students to understand and empathise with their clients.

The Play Therapy Course guides learners through the explicit dos and don’ts of play therapy. This ensures that the children and their parents get the most out of each session and ensures that you, as the therapist, continue to hone your skills in this area and gain a good reputation, which in turn will help your business to flourish.

We give you real-life case studies, from both the client’s and therapist’s points of view, to give concrete examples of the ‘how’ and ‘why’ play therapy works, as well as showcasing example methods.

Finally, we will outline the next steps for you to take on your journey to becoming a professional play therapist.

2. Child Psychology: Pursue A Career In Child Psychology

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.

3. Childcare and Early Learning: Learn The Knowledge & Understanding That You Need To Work In Childcare

This course explains the benefits, importance, and value of Childcare and Early Learning. The socialisation & developmental opportunities that it can provide to children are given focus, as are the difficulties faced by parents using day care.

Caring for someone else’s child is a big responsibility and so comes with many guidelines to follow. The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course explains Health & Safety directives, Care Plans, Individual Educational Programmes (IEPs), Medical Needs, Safeguarding responsibilities and other associated issues.

You will learn how children develop physically from birth onwards and how this development affects learning. The course also explains the ways in which health, environment, and genetic factors can affect physical development.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course will aid those considering a career in this area. Upon successful completion of this course, you will have gained an understanding of the roles of those working in Childcare, Education, and Playwork, and acquired the knowledge needed to take the next step on your career path.
