You will develop an appreciation of the differences in working with this group as opposed to adults, and of the theories and practical skills necessary to communicate and connect with this client group. The course is highly experiential in nature and you will use your own ‘inner adolescent’ and a wide range of creative tools in learning how to work therapeutically with children and young people in both formal and informal settings.
Benefits of this course include the opportunity to gain an insight into British working practices in the field of children's services, a practice placement in the counselling field for those suitably qualified and a learning package which includes block teaching and distance learning; enabling you to study and work in tandem. We are able to offer a supervised practice placement in our own school-based counselling service in Newport.
