Level 5 course in counselling children and young people
This 10-day online course is full of useful content and learning and is ideal for those who enjoy a mixture of live online learning within a small cohort of 12 and independently driven learning, as the course incorporates both.
Learners will be expected to view video content and read papers within the two weeks prior to each training day and should allow three hours for these tasks as each training days’ content will build upon the video and will be directly related to some of the papers’ content.
Learners should also allow an additional minimum of 20 hours across the course for background reading and assessment completion (two assignments due after the end of the course).
The online training days are all Saturdays and run from 10am to 4pm and will give 4.5 hours learning hours, with ample breaks to move away from the screen
The course is accredited by OCN London and is for qualified, practicing counsellors and psychotherapists. It will cover both part one of the BACP’s Counselling Young People (11-18 years) training curriculum and part one of the BACP’s Counselling Children (4-10 years) training curriculum.
There is a rising concern for the mental health of young people and this course will provide a clear and relevant understanding of the basic professional knowledge and skills needed to be an effective counsellor of children and young people and will allow counsellors to explore and increase their knowledge and clinical skills in their work with children and young people, in line with the current expectations of the profession.
Whilst we welcome learners who are members of any of the counselling and psychotherapy professional membership bodies, this course currently actively engages participants with the BACP Ethical Framework and the course will apply it to best practice in counselling children and young people, promoting the best outcomes for young people and their mental health and encouraging counsellors to practice in ethical and effective ways.
Using both theory and practical activities, the course will encourage individual and group learning and will be ideal for those who recognise the importance of practical learning – crucial in working with this age group.
Our facilitator will use communicative education techniques throughout and participants must be willing to engage with all the group members during all group and break out room activities, to further advance all participants’ learning.
