Working with Children – Online Diploma Certificate
Distance Learning
Many therapists tend to shy away from treating children for the simple reason that they don’t feel comfortable or they just don’t know what approach to take, as children do not readily respond to the standard adult inductions or regimens. This training offers the specialised techniques required for this work.
For anyone primarily trained in treating adults, the difference in the responses of a child can be very disconcerting. However, once those differences are understood, the process can be surprisingly easy and very rewarding. Children are usually free of the sort of expectations that can inhibit adults and so are often more receptive to change work. It requires a ‘letting-go’ of many of the givens in treating adults and the embracing of a much more playful way of working. Once we achieve that level of comfort, working with children can become a joy.
