Certificate in Child Psychology
Child psychology is one of the most important branches of applied psychology. Human nature is complex phenomenon. Every human being faces ever-new problems and decisions as he goes through the life. Hence it is essential to know and understand human behaviour from the very beginning of life. To know this, we must understand an individual as a child. We must study child psychology. Almost no area of life is untouched by our growing understanding of children. Ideas about child behaviour and the way they develop are important to parents, educators, and policymakers—to virtually everyone concerned with the future and wellbeing of society. The study of child psychology is also important in many other disciplines (like medicine, nursing, education, and social work).
That is why, here at Psyuni Institute of Psychology & Allied Sciences we not only believe that it is crucial to understand basic concepts and theoretical principles of child psychology, but also learn and understand concrete applications and illustrations of the theoretical principles by field training. In the process of training, the students become more aware of individual child they will meet every day and learn practical implications of their theoretical knowledge.
An enjoyable and creative atmosphere facilitates the experiential learning among students. Child Psychology focuses more on out-of-the-classroom study. The core model of this course is integrative. The holistic approach of the course emphasizes the need for the integration of all aspects of child development, including the awareness and changes in children’s cognitive, social, and physical development, and to understand and support children experiencing delays in their development. An emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and empowerment of the client are always seen as core to the process of therapeutic change and we encourage our students to develop their own style of counselling within the core integrative model being offered.
During course, students are introduced to counselling skills especially for child. They will learn how to therapeutically work with children and teenagers. During the training period, students will have a rich learning experience as they will be taught by different tutors all of whom are qualified counsellors practicing in a variety of therapeutic approaches. The course is mostly experiential; taught in a creative, challenging, and interactive way throughout. The teaching team considers professional practice to be a key component of counselling training and to be the future success of all qualified counsellors. Emphasis is also placed on students assuming self-responsibility in their general approach to their learning experience and meeting coursework requirements.
