Why Study Child Psychology?

The role of the child psychologist is one of unique importance and value.  Child psychologists dedicate their careers to supporting the strong and healthy development of children of all ages.  During childhood, significant social, emotional, physical and cognitive change occurs at a rapid pace.  Almost everything a child is exposed to plays a role in moulding their character, shaping their beliefs and influencing their behaviour.  Each case a child psychologist is presented with will always be 100% unique. It takes extensive knowledge, skill, intuition and confidence to support children and their families with important and often intimate issues.  Nevertheless, nothing is more rewarding than a career dedicated to supporting children’s psychological and emotional development.

By the end of this course the learner will be able to:

  • Discuss what Child Psychology is
  • Analyze the difference between development and growth
  • Explore different stages of development in children.
