The Course

Delivered over thirteen Saturday’s per annum in Bristol from January 2017 to December 2017, the course consists of developmental and neuroscience theory, psychodynamic approaches to therapy with children and young people. A work discussion group and process group run alongside individual supervision of your work/placement which can be arranged locally with an approved supervisor. The course is taught by highly experienced and qualified staff within the field.

Participants will be assessed on attendance, participation and engagement in the Programme alongside three written submissions throughout the year at post-graduate level.

You will be required to complete a minimum of 60 hours client work with children or young people in a school/FE college or other institutional setting. If you do not already work in a paid or unpaid capacity with children or young people, we may be able to provide some support in finding a placement.

Applications

Applicants must hold a recognised Diploma in Counselling. Your Diploma does not need to be in Psychodynamic Counselling but you will find it helpful to have a basic grounding or knowledge of psychodynamic theory. It is anticipated that applicants will already be working with children/young people or attempting to find paid or unpaid work as counsellors with this client group.

The course is run in parallel with Bath Spa University (BSU) and completion the course can count towards accreditation with Bath Spa University for the MA or PGD in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice allowing you to obtain an academic qualification alongside your counselling training i.e. 60 points credit for Counselling Diploma and a possible 30 points APEL credit for the Counselling Children and Young people Course towards the MA (180 points).

There is an additional fee payable to BSU for registration and for additional modules which will be required to achieve the MA/PGD awarded by the university.
