Have you ever wanted to work in an area that allows you to help and support adolescents and young adults? Have you ever wanted the opportunity to work with young people in society and support them as they face their toughest challenges during the most vulnerable time in their life? It is evident that if a person is not happy and healthy mentally then they will not have the ability to live a fulfilled life. Adolescent psychology can be one of the most controversial topics for debate with so many ‘armchair psychologists’ and ‘experts’.
This course has been carefully constructed to give you the skills and knowledge to guide young adults through the challenges and insecurities that life throws at them. This course starts by giving you a basic understanding in developmental psychology and the changes that evolve from early childhood to someone in late adulthood. You will then move on to various common developments of adolescent psychology and the physical, emotional, social and sexual developments that can occur during this stage of their life. The final module quickly dives deeply into the various learning disorders including the signs and symptoms of these.
