Level 5 OCN London course in counselling children & young people
This online Summer School course is open to qualified counsellors who hold a Level 4 qualification or above in counselling of any modality, who are receiving supervision for a minimum of 1.5 hours per month and are a member of a counselling professional body. Counsellors must be qualified before the first online training day of the course.
This intensive two week course will suit those learners who are happy to work across the Summer months.
Learners will be expected to view video content and read papers which will be sent, via email, six weeks before the course begins and will consist of approximately 30 hours work.
This pre-course work is essential as each training day will build upon the video’s content 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 will run from 10am to 4pm and will give 4.5 hours learning hours, with ample breaks to move away from the screen.
Interviews for the course will be held via Zoom and are free of charge. Please contact Carol Belsey, Course Director to arrange an interview time.
Please note this course is only open to 12 learners so please do not delay booking your interview.
Interviews will be held on:
Saturday 13th February 2021, Saturday 13th March 2021 and Saturday 1st April 2021
This Course, accredited by OCN London, is for qualified, practicing counsellors and psychotherapists. It will cover both Part 1 of the BACP’s Counselling Young People (11-18 years) training curriculum and Part 1 of the BACP’s Counselling Children (4-10 years) training curriculum.
There is 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.
Payment plan available.
