You’ll attend face-to-face study days at our Chelmsford campus, blended with online learning.
Explore the different mental health conditions and disorders of emotional wellbeing that children and young people may present with, or be diagnosed with.
We'll enable you to develop a comprehensive understanding of these conditions and disorders in order to facilitate support.
You'll build an understanding of how statutory and non-statutory organisations can support children/adolescents and their families to aid recovery. We'll explore coping mechanisms and who these influence, the child’s mental wellbeing, social communication and behavior regulation, as well as learning disabilities. The teaching and learning will also focus on the family and how the dynamics, culture and systems can affect the child’s mental health, and how mental wellbeing affects the family. Interventions and treatment will also be explored in relation to mental health issues in children.
The module is delivered in a blended approach, with five fortnightly face-to-face teaching sessions and the remainder of learning online. You'll be expected to attend all face-to-face teaching sessions.
You'll submit a summative assessment in the form of a 3,000-word essay.
Our module will suit health care professionals working in a relevant field.
