Why Study Child Psychology?

Until recently, children were regarded as little more than smaller versions of adults.  Today, we know that a child’s mind works completely differently to that of a developed adult.  Child psychology is not only unique and complex, but differs significantly from one child to the next.  What’s more, psychologists now acknowledge the extent to which experiences and influences throughout childhood can affect the adults we become.  To take an insightful child psychology course from home is to become an invaluable resource for children of all ages and their families.  Not to mention, open the door to incredible career prospects in almost any location worldwide!

This entry-level Child Psychology Award is ideal for newcomers, with no entry-criteria to fulfil and no deadlines!  Learn how child psychologists provide an array of important duties across the following two modules:

Unit 1. Child Psychology: An Overview

Module one provides a detailed introduction to the everyday duties and responsibilities of the professional child psychologist.  Candidates also discuss the various developmental stages from infancy to adolescence, along with the challenges posed by the uniqueness of every child.

Unit 2. Understanding Personality Development in Children

Concluding the course, module two examines personality development.  Learners study the stages of personality development in children, how various influences can affect the people we become as adults and the concept of character development.
