Certificate Program in Responding to Children and Youth Issues

About This Program

For counsellors working with children and youth, the challenge is to engage and work with them at their level while also attending to their important relationships and external influences. Children and youth are often unable to talk about their concerns, so creativity is needed to help them express emotions and work through problems. This program explores the ways in which mental health concerns are expressed in children and youth, including issues related to attachment, addictions, and anxiety. Participants will learn skills for fostering attachment, promoting self-regulation and healthy coping, and developing resilience.
