This course gives very clear and step-by-step practical guidance with many worked examples, backed by relevant theory so you understand what you are doing and why.

The child counselling skills module takes a practical all-round approach to child counselling, including the use of play therapy techniques. The basic counselling framework is explained in terms of goals, the relationship between counsellor and child, and the qualities needed by a children’s counsellor. The history of work with children is reviewed and a theoretical chapter explains the processes of change. Essential child counselling skills are introduced in a step-by-step way with examples. The psychodynamics of child counselling is outlined. A range of instructions and techniques for play therapy is given using different media and activities. The use of worksheets is introduced and a range of sample worksheets is given.

The adolescent counselling module takes a practical all-round approach to adolescent counselling incorporating knowledge of adolescent peer communication. The unit begins with an understanding of the nature of adolescence and the changes and problems that occur during that period. A proactive counselling model is then given, outlining the particular communication skills and counselling skills needed. A range of counselling strategies (symbolic, creative, behavioural/ cognitive-behavioural and psycho-educational) is explored and finally case studies are given showing adolescent counselling in practice.

The importance of child protection is highlighted and a factsheet is given on police checks for working with children and other requirements.

Students will receive lesson plans for written assignments which they may complete and return by email for assessment.

This course is for parents, qualified counsellors and helpers, teachers, and anybody who looks after or works with children or adolescents. It is an introductory or supplementary course and is not accredited by a government-recognised agency: therefore this course by itself is insufficient to qualify you to work with children or to meet any legal requirements for such work. However this course can act as a complement to other courses or refresher (especially if you have trained in the past and want to know the latest counselling thinking), and it might also increase your chances of finding a place on an approved child care or other course qualifying you to work with children.
