Certificate in Geropsychology
Geropsychology is the field within psychology that applies the knowledge and methods of psychology to understanding and helping older persons and their families maintain well-being, overcome problems, and achieve maximum potential during later life.
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 geriatric 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 they will meet every day and learn practical implications of their theoretical knowledge.
An enjoyable and creative atmosphere facilitates the experiential learning among students. PIPAS focuses more on out-of-the-class room study. The core model of this course is integrative. The holistic approach of the course emphasizes the need for the integration of thinking, feeling and behavior together with awareness of the social and cultural contexts of counseling and its implementation in response to ground situations. 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 counseling within the core integrative model being offered.
During the training period, students will have a rich learning experience as they will be taught by different tutors all of whom are qualified counselors 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 counseling training and to be the future success of all qualified counselors. Emphasis is also placed on students assuming self-responsibility in their general approach to their learning experience and meeting coursework requirements.
