Introduction to

Child Psychology:

Online Course

Who is this course for?

Child Psychology is one of the most frequently studied speciality areas as it focuses on the mind and behaviour of children from prenatal through to adolescence. Child Psychology not only looks at how children grow physically, but with their mental, emotional and social development as well.

In recent years, the UK has seen an increase of mental health illnesses diagnosed in pre-school children, and school settings have seen a rise in attachment disorders amongst their pupils.

This online course is for anyone who wishes to take their first steps into child psychology. No previous knowledge is necessary, just a willingness to learn and participate in a distance learning setting.

This 5 week online course will focus on:

· Childhood mental health disorders
· The importance of early relationships
· Attachment, including what happens when attachments aren’t formed 

Your tutor will be available for online support and tasks via your email on Mondays 12:30-2:30pm. Weekly tasks will be emailed directly to you, with links to videos, tutor films and other online resources for you to study.

In order to meet your learning objectives, each week, you will be presented with questions based on the activities completed that you are to answer and your tutor will provide you with feedback on these.
