LG Updated

Notice details

For trained counsellors, this short course provides an excellent bridge into adapting your counselling approach to working therapeutically with children and teenagers. The content of the course has been drawn from an existing two-year diploma which has almost completed the process of accreditation with BACP and CPCAB. It focuses on supporting the psychological resilience of the young person and the forward-looking elements of Positive Psychology as core principles of the approach. The methodology is designed to help young people develop the resources needed to deal with present life challenges and feel confident about managing similar challenges in the future. The interventions may extend to psycho-education, social-guidance as well as counselling, with a view to empowering the young person and promoting their self-actualisation processes. 

Course dates: May 18th to November 16th 2024
