The programme is designed as an Embedded Minor award within the Principal Programme titled the Bachelors of Arts (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy and is designed for learners who wish to develop knowledge and competence appropriate to enhance parenting competence and knowledge of the impact of trauma in developmental and parenting contexts for both personal and professional development.
The programme will be delivered with an emphasis on experiential and inter-communicational modes of learning. It will facilitate graduates with opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes of positive parenting to prepare them for working with parents in a range of professional contexts.
The programme will afford learners opportunities to develop knowledge of relevant theoretical and conceptual competencies required for engagement in supporting positive parenting.
It is anticipated that the programme will be attractive to learners from a range of disciplines including psychotherapy, social care, nursing, teaching, early childhood education and care, social work or other relevant areas who wish to explore the meaning of trauma and its influence on development and parenting.
