Why Study Child Psychology?

What makes us become the people we are?  Which factors and influences have a long-term effect on our development, wellbeing and enjoyment of life?  What can we do to ensure every child is given the opportunity to reach their full potential?  These are just some of the questions explored within the field of child psychology.  From birth right through to adolescence, child psychologists work closely with children of all ages and their primary caregivers.  In order to provide nurturing support for infants, children and teenagers alike, you must first get to know how they think, act and respond to external influences.  In doing so, you become one of the most important and powerful contributors to a child’s ongoing development.

This fascinating Level 1 Child Psychology distance learning program provides an entry-level introduction to one of the world’s most important specialist fields.  Get to know the mind of the child across three fascinating modules as follows:

Unit 1. Child Psychology: An Overview

Module one provides learners with a detailed introduction to child psychology, both as a profession and a wider concept.  Candidates study each individual developmental stage, along with how childhood development differs from growth and the typical roles and responsibilities of the child psychologist.

Unit 2. Understanding the Personality Development of Children

An introduction to personality development in children follows in module two, which explores the various factors that influence the people we become.  Character development is also explored, along with some of the most common personality development challenges encountered by children and their families.

Unit 3. Stages of Language Development

The course concludes with a fascinating exploration of speech and language development, which examines general lexical development theory and childhood communication evolution.  Common speech and language development issues are discussed, along with their origins and known pathways for treatment.
