The Certificate in Child Psychology programme provides a basic understanding of the principles of developmental psychology and a more specific understanding of the psychological makeup of children. You will be introduced to a variety of child developmental theories and learn about a variety of mental health and social difficulties that children can experience and the developmental factors associated with these issues. This is a great option if you want to improve your skills in a child management setting, or want to learn more as a parent or caregiver.

This programme is designed for enrichment purposes only. It does not have a direct vocational outcome. Students who complete this programme are not qualified to function as child psychologists and cannot market themselves as mental health professionals.
