4. Social Care with Children and Families: Learn How To Work With Children And Families In A Social Work Context

Working with children and families is a highly specialised and skilled area of social work. To be effective social workers need to be flexible, knowledgeable and highly mindful of many aspects of the family and the obstacles that can arise when working with this group.

Social care professionals who work specifically with children and families often provide guidance and support, counselling and supervisory services to families facing economic, family, substance abuse and illness-related difficulties. These social care workers collaborate with teachers, lawyers, police and medical professionals to provide quality care to families and children.

This course in child and family social care will aim to introduce you to the structure of the family, and to teach you to take the necessary factors into consideration as well as the proper procedures and courses of action involved when working with children and families in a social work context.

5. Nutrition for Children and Adolescents: Learn How To Improve The Health And Nutrition Of Children

With the exception of very young children (4-6 years old), between 40-69% of children in Britain are largely inactive, spending less than one hour a day participating in activities of moderate intensity. These findings are also consistent with a number of other recent reports concerning the increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity in children. This is a situation that is mirrored in adults and is likely to stem from the same fundamental causes.

Like many adults, British children are typically eating less than half the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. One in five (4-18 year olds) eat no fruit at all during an average week. Poor eating and poor physical activity habits in childhood may increase the risk of health problems in later in life. The diet of a child is a factor, to varying degrees, in the development of a number of diseases, either in childhood itself or during adult life, such as obesity, iron deficiency anaemia, dental caries, coronary heart disease, hypertension, osteoporosis and cancer.

There is some evidence to suggest that health traits present in childhood tend to track into adult life, including body weight, blood levels of cholesterol, other blood lipids and insulin, and blood pressure.

Improving the health and nutrition of children should remain a priority for the government, health professionals, the food industry and teachers alike. But more importantly, parents should also have an active role in providing the best nutritional quality to their children. The course aims to show parents and practitioners how to improve the health and nutrition of children.

6. Counselling Children and Adolescents: Learn how to help individuals to find their own answers

Counsellors help individuals to find their own answers and make their own choices. They help clients to reduce confusion and gain a different perspective to cope with life’s challenges and make positive changes where necessary.

About Counselling Children & Adolescents

Counselling children and adolescents is often different from counselling adults, though the objective is the same. Methods used in counselling children and adolescents often depend on the clients’ age, development stage and individual challenges. Your role as the counsellor is to help the client, no matter the age, to make their own decisions rather than making decisions for them.

About Our Counselling Children & Adolescents Course

From the counselling relationship through child development, as well as the information you need to establish a successful practice, our online counselling course will prepare you with the knowledge needed to be an effective child and adolescent counsellor.

What Can I Do After Taking This Course?

With educational establishments looking to provide professional, in-house counselling for their students, there are ever increasing opportunities for counsellors who are able to relate to young people in an understanding and appropriate therapeutic environment.

7. Caring for People with Learning Disabilities: Learn How To Care For And Manage People With Learning Difficulties

Thanks to advances in medical technology, we are living in an era when more people with learning disabilities can now live functional lives. As more of the learning disabled are at home rather than in hospital situations or institutions, it has become necessary for a wider base of the population to be educated in assisting to care for them.

In this course our tutors will guide you through the social dimensions of learning disabilities, while examining methods of teaching, caring for and managing people with learning difficulties. The support needed to provide people with a better life from the first stage of disability until they gain some independence in daily activities, despite their disabled condition, can be expected to be in even greater demand in the future.

8. Behavioural Therapy: Learn About Modern Behavioural Therapy

Andrew Salter who founded modern behavioural therapy used conceptions of excitation and inhibition as the basis for treatment of the neurotic. When excitatory forces dominate, people are action-orientated and emotionally free.

They meet life on their own terms. The neurotic, on the other hand, always suffers from an excess of inhibition. Through this course the student will learn how Behavioural Therapy employs mental and physical exercise to build and strengthen the excitatory processes, creating a new balance where they can dominate the brain functioning and overcome problematic behaviour.

9. Classroom Behaviour: Learn All Aspects Of Classroom Behaviour

This course looks at the area of classroom behaviour and gives practical tips and strategies to use to be successful when working with pupils.

The resources are up to date and relevant and cover areas such as research into behaviour, how to make a strong first impression, how to manage inappropriate and confrontational behaviour, working with children with SEN, how to build good relationships and develop positive learning environments.

This course is aimed at teachers, lecturers, supply teachers, teaching assistants and cover supervisors; indeed anyone working with children.

10. Autism Awareness: Develop Your Understanding Of The Diverse Condition Of Autism

The Autism Awareness course aims to develop your understanding of the diverse condition of autism and gives practical suggestions when working with autistic individuals.

Autism refers to a whole range of social, language and communication problems. Severity ranges from mild and often undiagnosed to severe, where it is almost impossible for people to successfully engage in society.

The aim of this course is to provide a better awareness of the term “autism” and “autistic spectrum disorder” (ASD) and how to support individuals with autism.

Course 2 - Certificate in Child Development Online Course

The Development Cycle

  • The Development Cycle
  • Puberty
  • School
  • We judge too much by the superficial evidence of ‘success’ or ‘failure’
  • Development does not advance in a straight line
  • Developmental trends and fluctuations are primarily the expressions of the ancient process of evolution
  • The age of five
  • The age of six
  • The age of seven
  • The age of eight
  • The age of nine
  • Age of ten
  • Adolescence
  • Appraisal
  • External pressures are modulated to
  • Then reared through guidance based on sympathetic understanding

The Growing Mind

  • The psychology of the child, which includes all his behaviour, is inseparably bound up with his nervous system, and indeed with his entire organism
  • We cannot separate ‘the mind’ from the total child
  • The child is, and should be seen as a unit - the nervous system makes him so
  • Nervous system consists of multi-billions of neurons which connect every sensitive and every moving part of the whole organism
  • Gradients of growth
  • Prehensile - the taking hold and grasping of objects
  • Gradient of Prehensile Behaviour:
  • Basic mechanism of all psychological development
  • Each new pattern grows out of, and yet retains a connection with, the old pattern
  • Gradient begins with the simple pattern of looking and with increasing maturity one refinement follows another in lawful sequence
  • All school skills have a similar pre-history of growth, they are always subject to the principle of developmental readiness
  • Reading Behaviour
  • Purpose of growth gradients
  • Acquisitive Behaviour
  • Maturation and acculturation will prove to hold in all fields of behaviour
  • Primary growth gradients hold the key to the wisest methods of guidance and education
  • Gradients are not applied to ascertain a mental age, or to measure the child in an arbitrary way
  • Growth gradients tell us something about the psychological differences between boys and girls
  • Absolutism leads to authoritarianism and this in turn leads to blindness

Parent, Child, Teacher Relationships

  • As a child matures he gradually makes distinctions and learns to distinguish between what is animate and what is inanimate
  • Parent and child relationships of family life are of determining importance in the early patterning of personality
  • Parent/child relationships are based on heredity, or kinship
  • Teacher/child relationships are based on authority conferred by the educational system
  • Psychological reinforcement
  • The teacher observes the child as a member of a social group and this brings to light characteristics that the home cannot reveal
  • Three common components of enlightened parent/child and teacher/child relationships
  • Considerateness
  • Sense of humour
  • Philosophy of growth
  • Adjustment
  • Classroom behaviour
  • Three culture areas
  • Language Arts – 5 years old
  • Sciences – 5 years old
  • Personal-social participation – 5 years old

The Growing Child

  • Patterning of behaviour begins
  • Physiological functions
  • Appears unsteady, unstable and his thresholds of reaction are low and inconstant
  • Breathing and body temperature can often be perceived to be irregular
  • Satisfactions, needs, interests and drives are determined by status of his entire organism
  • Acquisition of speech involves a recombination of feeding and breathing behaviour patterns
  • Cerebra-spinal nervous system
  • Growth sequences
  • Structuralisation of Behaviour
  • The corpus of behaviour
  • Neuro-muscular system
  • Eye-hand-body coordination
  • Tonic-neck-reflex
  • Temperament types which are associated with three body types
  • Viscerotoni
  • Somatotonic
  • Cerebrotonic

The Complexity of Growth

  • Child’s organism consists of a collection of organ systems
  • Incidence of accidents is determined by three sets of interacting factors
  • Site of injury may be affected by the child’s body build and motor characteristics
  • Exposure to risk is largely determined by their immature traits and lack of parental foresight
  • Parents and teachers are inclined to place too much reliance on admonition and explanation
  • If a child is unduly afraid, he or she cannot be duly cautious - that is prudent and wary
  • Organism of the child rarely remains in a smooth equilibrium for any extended period
  • Even in the absence of accidents and illness the child is subject to tensions which express themselves outwardly in different forms of tensional activity
  • Temper tantrums
  • Tensional behaviour is at a relatively low ebb at five years
  • Tensions involve
  • Self-preservation - the first law of life
  • Self-expansion – the second law of life
  • Tempers are displayed
  • Whatever his mode of expression, he behaves as he does because he has organised his personal-social reactions in a given manner
  • Anger and aggression
  • We must look to the period from five to ten years of age for the developmental beginnings of possibly long-term, problematic behaviour and in this area the psychology of childhood anger takes on impressive import

Ethical Sense

  • Adults
  • Dispositions and potentialities which undergo progressive organisation
  • Three phases fundamental dynamic
  • Self-inhibition and Social disapproval
  • Approbation and disapprobation
  • Self-assertive conduct
  • The mind
  • Primitive shamefacedness
  • Disgrace gesture
  • Undesirable behaviour
  • Obedience
  • Ethical development between years from five to ten is clearly traced in expanding concepts of Good and Bad
  • The 6th year
  • The 7th year
  • The 8th and 9th year
  • The 10th year
  • Emotional expression arises from a complex state of tensions
