1. Childcare and Early Learnin: 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.

The information contained within the course is also beneficial to parents who wish to get a better understanding of how their children are being educated and how they may further aid their development at home.

2. Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People: Help To Make Positive Changes Through Knowledge

This course explains how parents, teachers, and others who care for children can help to make positive changes through knowledge, change in mindset and the implementation of effective strategies and techniques.

The Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People Certificate Course will look at what we mean by ‘challenging behaviour’ and help us to understand the reasons behind difficult behaviours in children and young people. It will help you understand that there is always a reason for any behaviour, whether it seems obvious to us or not. It is their way of communicating with us, often in the absence of having any other way to do so.

We will look at challenging behaviours across all ages and provide ways of dealing with these. We’ll cover how brain development from birth to the teenage years can account for certain behaviours, so we develop an understanding of what is going on in our children’s minds and how we can help them.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People Certificate Course is designed to provide parents, carers, and teachers with a better understanding of child behaviour and the knowledge of how best to deal with it. The results of this will be a vast improvement in the relationships between you and the children in your care, whether in a parental or professional role.

3. Baby Sign Language: Learn Just What Baby Sign Language Is

You’ll learn just what baby sign language is and how easily it can be used to establish communication between you and your child well before they start to speak. The history of baby language and the reasons it has come into popular usage are discussed. The course allays common misconceptions about teaching a child baby sign language and even outlines the benefits to both baby and you.

The great thing about this communication tool is that there is no right or wrong time to start, no ‘being behind’ or ‘too late’ (unless they’re already using speech to communicate), and you can start to establish baby signing from as early as 6 months, though they likely won’t sign until they’re closer to 8 or 9 months, or even at toddler age. Whatever you decide, this course shows you how to start implementing baby sign language, giving guidance on the process, and providing essential signs first: milk, eat, drink, more, done, mummy and daddy.

As with any learning process, there can be bumps in the road to mastery. The Baby Sign Language Course outlines some of the common problems that you may face as your baby learns to sign and how to work through them.

Fully-illustrated and broken down into categories, this course provides a vocabulary of some of the most important signs from the baby sign language repertoire. This is provided both as written descriptions with diagrams and as videos that visually illustrate how each sign should be enacted. In both instances, the vocabulary is categorised into the following sections: family, food, animals, play, directives and signs for social situations, and daily baby life signs.

Who would benefit from this course?

Those with babies and toddlers have the most to gain from this course, as it offers an easy to use communication tool between parent and child before the child is able to speak.

If you’re finding yourself frantically trying to understand why your baby is crying or your toddler is having a tantrum and nothing seems to be appeasing them, this will help them to tell you what they need.

The course also provides professional child-carers with an excellent tool to use in your role, that will enrich the lives of your clients and their children, and which will give you an extra edge over your competition.

Learning to sign also provides children with learning disabilities with an easy to learn communication tool that reduces the frustration and anger of not being able to express themselves and helps them to gain a better grasp of what’s being communicated by others.

4. 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.

5. Child Counselling: 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.

6. EFT for Kids: Equip Children With The Benefits Of EFT

You may have only heard of the acronym, EFT, before or you may even have a good idea of what Emotional Freedom Techniques are, but you want to fully understand them, what they can do, and how to incorporate them into your and your children’s lives. The EFT for Kids Course will help you to do so.

This course is divided into 3 distinct parts. The 1st explains what Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) are and their applications in adults, and the 2nd takes this knowledge and adds to it; describing how the practice of EFT can benefit children and how to apply the techniques to them and help them to learn them for themselves. The 3rd part explains how to go about becoming a professional EFT Practitioner and what an example client session could look like.

Moving on from the theory and the basics, the EFT for Kids Course’s 4th module focusses on how to complete the full procedure of EFT, from setup to application, detailing each part of the sequence with a simple, easy-to-follow sequence.

The EFT for Kids Course introduces its 2nd part; explaining the use of EFT in the lives of children and how having this knowledge at a young age can be extremely powerful, and enable them to become more capable in resolving emotional challenges as they grow.

What many of us forget in children, is that their emotions are still rudimentary and they will be experiencing some emotions for the very first time, which can be confusing and scary. You will learn about how children process emotions and how EFT can help them to gain control over their emotions, gain confidence, and even tackle physical pain and injuries.

The course takes students through how to go about helping children to become aware of their emotions and accepting them, before going on to explain the tapping points and how to use them with a child.

The course expands on the ways that children can be encouraged to practice EFT, and gives more techniques on how they can approach it themselves. We also highlight some common problems that children may face, which they may lack the emotional maturity to deal with alone, but that EFT can help with.

The final part of EFT for Kids Course covers a little about being a professional EFT Practitioner; showing students what a typical client session could look like and how to go about gaining a career in this area.

Who would benefit from the course?

The EFT for Kids Certificate Course would benefit parents who would like to help their children develop emotional intelligence and give them the tools to better understand their minds and improve their mental well-being. Whether they are having issues now or not, EFT is a simple practice that children can learn with relative ease and which will help them on their way to and through adulthood, as they are more capable in retaining emotional balance as anxiety presents itself.

Aside from parents themselves, those who are interested in EFT in general or would like to pursue a career in this area, possibly specialising in EFT for children, will learn a lot here as the topic is covered comprehensively.

7. Mindfulness for Children: Equip Your Child With The Tools And Benefits Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is often thought of as something that is used only by adults; in particular, to help with stress, anxiety, and depression. This course aims to help children to benefit from practising mindfulness and arm them with techniques that will help them to handle negative emotions better, and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives.

The Mindfulness for Children Course discusses stress. This includes: the symptoms of stress, the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed, why stress exists, and the effects on the brain. We then explain how mindfulness can help counteract these effects and simple ways that it can be brought into the daily routine of a child as easily it can be in an adult’s life, with similar positive effects.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you techniques to help you and your child do this and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with 2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Certificate Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.

8. Applied Behaviour Analysis: Gain A Greater Understanding Of The Definition Of ‘Behaviour’

The Applied Behaviour Analysis Certificate Course will provide you first with the essential principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis, before expanding on these further as you progress through the course materials. You will gain a greater understanding of the definition of ‘behaviour’ within behavioural psychology and the differences between classical and operant conditioning.

You will learn about different types of stimuli and antecedents that elicit behaviours and what Antecedent-based intervention (ABI) is and how it can be used to alter these behaviours. The course will guide you through creating an ABI plan and how to evaluate the success of its implementation.

The Applied Behaviour Analysis Certificate Course explains operant reinforcement and how it relates to developing new behaviours. The course also analyses positive and negative reinforcement, giving a full understanding within the context of ABA. You will learn how reinforcers should be used and the ways in which they can be scheduled, along with how to evaluate their effectiveness.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Applied Behaviour Analysis Certificate Course has been created to give parents and caregivers of ASD children a better understanding of the techniques involved in the practice and how they are implemented.

It also provides a solid foundation of knowledge for those who would like to take further study in their pursuit of a career as an ABA Tutor or Therapist, or a Behavioural Psychologist.

9. Autism Awareness: Everything That You Need To Know About Autism

This comprehensive best selling course, written and developed by a leading authority on Autism, will teach you everything that you need to know about Autism, what it is, how to spot the signs and symptoms, diagnosing Autism, the gender differences in Autism, treatments, therapies, interventions and strategies, how to make reasonable adjustments, adults and children with Autism and inclusion.

Autism and it is estimated to affect one in every hundred people in the UK, although in the US their current estimate is one in every sixty-eight people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the Autistic Brain is organised in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with Autism sees, perceives and processes the world around them. The impact of Autism is individual – every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning that every child with the condition is likely to present with different symptoms, different challenges, and a differing level of severity

Certain disabilities increase the risk of also being diagnosed with Autism.
Once an Autism Diagnosis is made, there are several other neurological conditions which may also be present. To be diagnosed with Autism, a person must meet The Triad of Impairment criteria, and be seen to have difficulties with all three of the following – communication, imagination and interaction. The rates of Autism Diagnoses has risen very steeply in recent decade, leading many to believe that there is an epidemic. The more likely reason for this increase is due to better diagnostic criteria and better awareness of the condition.

Who would benefit from this course?

Written by a leading authority on Autism, this comprehensive and powerful course aims to provide a better awareness of the term “autism” and “autistic spectrum disorder” (ASD), it teaches how to best support individuals with autism and equips parents, care givers and teachers with the skills and knowledge needed to help as many people as possible.

This course would be beneficial to anyone looking to understand more about Autism, parents, caregivers and teachers.

10. Bipolar Disorder Awareness: Help Those Affected To Lead Healthier, Happier Lives

 

If you have bipolar disorder or hope to help someone who does, this course gives you a single, comprehensive resource that will enhance understanding and help those affected to lead healthier, happier lives. You will learn about the signs and symptoms, diagnosis and treatments, and how to manage bipolar disorder.

To understand bipolar disorder, you first need to address the issue of mental illness in general. Studying the Bipolar Disorder Awareness Certificate Course, you will learn what is meant by the term “mental illness”. The course covers who is affected, the most common forms of mental illness, why the notion of mental illness itself is sometimes called into question, and how it can be prevented. You’ll also be exposed to what the latest research suggests regarding the causes and prognosis of its various forms.

Bipolar disorder has many different forms and while the common thread is a tendency to experience mood swings, the variations differ in many important ways. Through your studies, you’ll discover the various types and gain an understanding of what they can mean for the sufferer and the symptoms and treatments of each.

The predominant opinion of psychiatrists is that bipolar disorder is caused, maintained and worsened by multiple factors. You’ll learn what researchers have discovered about links between various environmental and biological factors, and mental health.

Often referred to as “the rule rather than the exception”, a bipolar patient is usually diagnosed as suffering from two or more additional psychiatric disorders, though it can be diagnosed alone. The Bipolar Disorder Awareness Course explores the range of comorbid mental illnesses that often co-occur in those with bipolar disorder.

Part of the treatment of bipolar disorder is medication. This course looks at the most commonly prescribed drugs for the various forms of the condition, including how each works, how they are administered, possible side effects, effectiveness, and the risks of taking medication during pregnancy.

Treatment for bipolar disorder isn’t limited to medication, with other supportive measures in place to help those with the condition. One such treatment is psychotherapy, which encourages those with bipolar to discuss their mental health problems. Studying the Bipolar Disorder Awareness Certificate, you will learn more about what psychotherapy is, why it is used, who it may benefit, its specific application in bipolar disorder, and how effective it is.

The prevailing opinion within the medical profession is that bipolar disorder cannot be cured but its effects can be managed. While psychotherapy and medication are effective in reducing the severity of symptoms, it is in making day-to-day changes that a sufferer can prevent mood episodes and decrease the intensity of those that do occur. This course explores the steps that someone with bipolar can take to manage the symptoms of their illness. Such steps include managing diet, exercise, sleep patterns, social support and other lifestyle factors.

Who would benefit from this course?

If you have, or think you may have, bipolar disorder or have a friend or family member who does, this course centralises all the information you need to fully understand the condition and how to manage it.

Similarly, if you work in a position of care or are a therapist, or would like to, the information contained within the course will help you to understand those living with bipolar disorder and enable you to help and give useful, actionable advice to those with the condition.

1. Childcare and Early Learnin: 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.

The information contained within the course is also beneficial to parents who wish to get a better understanding of how their children are being educated and how they may further aid their development at home.

2. Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People: Help To Make Positive Changes Through Knowledge

This course explains how parents, teachers, and others who care for children can help to make positive changes through knowledge, change in mindset and the implementation of effective strategies and techniques.

The Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People Certificate Course will look at what we mean by ‘challenging behaviour’ and help us to understand the reasons behind difficult behaviours in children and young people. It will help you understand that there is always a reason for any behaviour, whether it seems obvious to us or not. It is their way of communicating with us, often in the absence of having any other way to do so.

We will look at challenging behaviours across all ages and provide ways of dealing with these. We’ll cover how brain development from birth to the teenage years can account for certain behaviours, so we develop an understanding of what is going on in our children’s minds and how we can help them.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Challenging Behaviour in Children and Young People Certificate Course is designed to provide parents, carers, and teachers with a better understanding of child behaviour and the knowledge of how best to deal with it. The results of this will be a vast improvement in the relationships between you and the children in your care, whether in a parental or professional role.

3. Baby Sign Language: Learn Just What Baby Sign Language Is

You’ll learn just what baby sign language is and how easily it can be used to establish communication between you and your child well before they start to speak. The history of baby language and the reasons it has come into popular usage are discussed. The course allays common misconceptions about teaching a child baby sign language and even outlines the benefits to both baby and you.

The great thing about this communication tool is that there is no right or wrong time to start, no ‘being behind’ or ‘too late’ (unless they’re already using speech to communicate), and you can start to establish baby signing from as early as 6 months, though they likely won’t sign until they’re closer to 8 or 9 months, or even at toddler age. Whatever you decide, this course shows you how to start implementing baby sign language, giving guidance on the process, and providing essential signs first: milk, eat, drink, more, done, mummy and daddy.

As with any learning process, there can be bumps in the road to mastery. The Baby Sign Language Course outlines some of the common problems that you may face as your baby learns to sign and how to work through them.

Fully-illustrated and broken down into categories, this course provides a vocabulary of some of the most important signs from the baby sign language repertoire. This is provided both as written descriptions with diagrams and as videos that visually illustrate how each sign should be enacted. In both instances, the vocabulary is categorised into the following sections: family, food, animals, play, directives and signs for social situations, and daily baby life signs.

Who would benefit from this course?

Those with babies and toddlers have the most to gain from this course, as it offers an easy to use communication tool between parent and child before the child is able to speak.

If you’re finding yourself frantically trying to understand why your baby is crying or your toddler is having a tantrum and nothing seems to be appeasing them, this will help them to tell you what they need.

The course also provides professional child-carers with an excellent tool to use in your role, that will enrich the lives of your clients and their children, and which will give you an extra edge over your competition.

Learning to sign also provides children with learning disabilities with an easy to learn communication tool that reduces the frustration and anger of not being able to express themselves and helps them to gain a better grasp of what’s being communicated by others.

4. 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.

5. Child Counselling: 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.

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.

6. EFT for Kids: Equip Children With The Benefits Of EFT

You may have only heard of the acronym, EFT, before or you may even have a good idea of what Emotional Freedom Techniques are, but you want to fully understand them, what they can do, and how to incorporate them into your and your children’s lives. The EFT for Kids Course will help you to do so.

This course is divided into 3 distinct parts. The 1st explains what Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) are and their applications in adults, and the 2nd takes this knowledge and adds to it; describing how the practice of EFT can benefit children and how to apply the techniques to them and help them to learn them for themselves. The 3rd part explains how to go about becoming a professional EFT Practitioner and what an example client session could look like.

Moving on from the theory and the basics, the EFT for Kids Course’s 4th module focusses on how to complete the full procedure of EFT, from setup to application, detailing each part of the sequence with a simple, easy-to-follow sequence.

The EFT for Kids Course introduces its 2nd part; explaining the use of EFT in the lives of children and how having this knowledge at a young age can be extremely powerful, and enable them to become more capable in resolving emotional challenges as they grow.

What many of us forget in children, is that their emotions are still rudimentary and they will be experiencing some emotions for the very first time, which can be confusing and scary. You will learn about how children process emotions and how EFT can help them to gain control over their emotions, gain confidence, and even tackle physical pain and injuries.

The course takes students through how to go about helping children to become aware of their emotions and accepting them, before going on to explain the tapping points and how to use them with a child.

The course expands on the ways that children can be encouraged to practice EFT, and gives more techniques on how they can approach it themselves. We also highlight some common problems that children may face, which they may lack the emotional maturity to deal with alone, but that EFT can help with.

The final part of EFT for Kids Course covers a little about being a professional EFT Practitioner; showing students what a typical client session could look like and how to go about gaining a career in this area.

Who would benefit from the course?

The EFT for Kids Certificate Course would benefit parents who would like to help their children develop emotional intelligence and give them the tools to better understand their minds and improve their mental well-being. Whether they are having issues now or not, EFT is a simple practice that children can learn with relative ease and which will help them on their way to and through adulthood, as they are more capable in retaining emotional balance as anxiety presents itself.

Aside from parents themselves, those who are interested in EFT in general or would like to pursue a career in this area, possibly specialising in EFT for children, will learn a lot here as the topic is covered comprehensively.

7. Mindfulness for Children: Equip Your Child With The Tools And Benefits Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is often thought of as something that is used only by adults; in particular, to help with stress, anxiety, and depression. This course aims to help children to benefit from practising mindfulness and arm them with techniques that will help them to handle negative emotions better, and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives.

The Mindfulness for Children Course discusses stress. This includes: the symptoms of stress, the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed, why stress exists, and the effects on the brain. We then explain how mindfulness can help counteract these effects and simple ways that it can be brought into the daily routine of a child as easily it can be in an adult’s life, with similar positive effects.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you techniques to help you and your child do this and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with 2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Certificate Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.

8. Applied Behaviour Analysis: Gain A Greater Understanding Of The Definition Of ‘Behaviour’

The Applied Behaviour Analysis Certificate Course will provide you first with the essential principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis, before expanding on these further as you progress through the course materials. You will gain a greater understanding of the definition of ‘behaviour’ within behavioural psychology and the differences between classical and operant conditioning.

You will learn about different types of stimuli and antecedents that elicit behaviours and what Antecedent-based intervention (ABI) is and how it can be used to alter these behaviours. The course will guide you through creating an ABI plan and how to evaluate the success of its implementation.

The Applied Behaviour Analysis Certificate Course explains operant reinforcement and how it relates to developing new behaviours. The course also analyses positive and negative reinforcement, giving a full understanding within the context of ABA. You will learn how reinforcers should be used and the ways in which they can be scheduled, along with how to evaluate their effectiveness.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Applied Behaviour Analysis Certificate Course has been created to give parents and caregivers of ASD children a better understanding of the techniques involved in the practice and how they are implemented.

It also provides a solid foundation of knowledge for those who would like to take further study in their pursuit of a career as an ABA Tutor or Therapist, or a Behavioural Psychologist.

9. Autism Awareness: Everything That You Need To Know About Autism

This comprehensive best selling course, written and developed by a leading authority on Autism, will teach you everything that you need to know about Autism, what it is, how to spot the signs and symptoms, diagnosing Autism, the gender differences in Autism, treatments, therapies, interventions and strategies, how to make reasonable adjustments, adults and children with Autism and inclusion.

Autism and it is estimated to affect one in every hundred people in the UK, although in the US their current estimate is one in every sixty-eight people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the Autistic Brain is organised in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with Autism sees, perceives and processes the world around them. The impact of Autism is individual – every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning that every child with the condition is likely to present with different symptoms, different challenges, and a differing level of severity

Certain disabilities increase the risk of also being diagnosed with Autism.
Once an Autism Diagnosis is made, there are several other neurological conditions which may also be present. To be diagnosed with Autism, a person must meet The Triad of Impairment criteria, and be seen to have difficulties with all three of the following – communication, imagination and interaction. The rates of Autism Diagnoses has risen very steeply in recent decade, leading many to believe that there is an epidemic. The more likely reason for this increase is due to better diagnostic criteria and better awareness of the condition.

Who would benefit from this course?

Written by a leading authority on Autism, this comprehensive and powerful course aims to provide a better awareness of the term “autism” and “autistic spectrum disorder” (ASD), it teaches how to best support individuals with autism and equips parents, care givers and teachers with the skills and knowledge needed to help as many people as possible.

10. Bipolar Disorder Awareness: Help Those Affected To Lead Healthier, Happier Lives

 

If you have bipolar disorder or hope to help someone who does, this course gives you a single, comprehensive resource that will enhance understanding and help those affected to lead healthier, happier lives. You will learn about the signs and symptoms, diagnosis and treatments, and how to manage bipolar disorder.

To understand bipolar disorder, you first need to address the issue of mental illness in general. Studying the Bipolar Disorder Awareness Certificate Course, you will learn what is meant by the term “mental illness”. The course covers who is affected, the most common forms of mental illness, why the notion of mental illness itself is sometimes called into question, and how it can be prevented. You’ll also be exposed to what the latest research suggests regarding the causes and prognosis of its various forms.

Bipolar disorder has many different forms and while the common thread is a tendency to experience mood swings, the variations differ in many important ways. Through your studies, you’ll discover the various types and gain an understanding of what they can mean for the sufferer and the symptoms and treatments of each.

The predominant opinion of psychiatrists is that bipolar disorder is caused, maintained and worsened by multiple factors. You’ll learn what researchers have discovered about links between various environmental and biological factors, and mental health.

Often referred to as “the rule rather than the exception”, a bipolar patient is usually diagnosed as suffering from two or more additional psychiatric disorders, though it can be diagnosed alone. The Bipolar Disorder Awareness Course explores the range of comorbid mental illnesses that often co-occur in those with bipolar disorder.

Part of the treatment of bipolar disorder is medication. This course looks at the most commonly prescribed drugs for the various forms of the condition, including how each works, how they are administered, possible side effects, effectiveness, and the risks of taking medication during pregnancy.

Treatment for bipolar disorder isn’t limited to medication, with other supportive measures in place to help those with the condition. One such treatment is psychotherapy, which encourages those with bipolar to discuss their mental health problems. Studying the Bipolar Disorder Awareness Certificate, you will learn more about what psychotherapy is, why it is used, who it may benefit, its specific application in bipolar disorder, and how effective it is.

The prevailing opinion within the medical profession is that bipolar disorder cannot be cured but its effects can be managed. While psychotherapy and medication are effective in reducing the severity of symptoms, it is in making day-to-day changes that a sufferer can prevent mood episodes and decrease the intensity of those that do occur. This course explores the steps that someone with bipolar can take to manage the symptoms of their illness. Such steps include managing diet, exercise, sleep patterns, social support and other lifestyle factors.

Who would benefit from this course?

If you have, or think you may have, bipolar disorder or have a friend or family member who does, this course centralises all the information you need to fully understand the condition and how to manage it.

Similarly, if you work in a position of care or are a therapist, or would like to, the information contained within the course will help you to understand those living with bipolar disorder and enable you to help and give useful, actionable advice to those with the condition.
