Counselling children and young people Diploma

Counselling for children and young people has a significant role to play in order to maintain their mental health. It is not at all a daunting task for teachers, parents and other adults to figure out signs of disturbed mental health in a child or adolescent. Upon identification of any change in mental health, a process should be in place to allow the concerned child or young person to be taken, with their consent, to a counsellor. Counselling not only boosts wellbeing of children and young people but also encourages them to take positive decisions for themselves. So, basically, counselling is a kind of intervention, which, if done appropriately and sometimes early, proves to be immensely effective in improving mental health, especially of children and young people. There are many theories that have been proposed to explain various aspects of counselling. Popular among them are by Jean Piaget, Vygotsky, John Bowlby, etc. This course ‘Counselling Children and Young People’ examines various therapeutic strategies and approaches for counsellors working with children and young people in various conditions. It also analyses various issues faced by them. If you love children and would like to spend time with them, then  this is the perfect course to choose. Upon completing this course you will be able to work as child counsellors, academics and trainers. There is vast opportunity after completing this course as there is growing demand for child counsellors and trainers in many schools and child help centers these days.
