Quality Licence Scheme Level 3 Child + Adolescent Counselling Diploma

Introduction

This course is accepted by ACCPH and the Quality Licence Scheme Level 3 and allows you to join as a professional member after graduation.

This Quality Licence Scheme Level 3 Diploma course is designed to follow on from, and compliment the basic or introductory counselling course. Reappraisal of basic counselling skills and core knowledge will be covered, together with a detailed examination of the five approaches or theories of counselling.

Specific attention will be given to psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and person-centred approaches, which will give students a fuller working knowledge and understanding of advanced counselling skills. In specialist counselling fields, these advanced skills are necessary in order to be able to recognise and deal with the complex range of client needs, together with being able to understand the origins of these particular emotions and possible physiological factors.

This online counselling course focuses on the integrated method of child counselling with significant reference to using narrative and imagery techniques. For adolescents who are struggling with the transition to adulthood, special counselling skills and approaches are required, together with proactive and creative strategies. In addition to the counselling approaches, various working models and theories specific to this field will be explored as well as behavioural, psychosocial strategies and reflective practice.

The course consists of ten modules and an online examination.
