Continuing Professional Development (short course)
Module level: 6 and 7
Module credits: 30 credits
You’ll attend face-to-face study days at our Chelmsford campus, blended with online learning.
Explore the different mental health conditions and disorders of emotional wellbeing that children and young people may present with, or be diagnosed with.
We'll enable you to develop a comprehensive understanding of these conditions and disorders in order to facilitate support.
You'll build an understanding of how statutory and non-statutory organisations can support children/adolescents and their families to aid recovery. We'll explore coping mechanisms and who these influence, the child’s mental wellbeing, social communication and behavior regulation, as well as learning disabilities. The teaching and learning will also focus on the family and how the dynamics, culture and systems can affect the child’s mental health, and how mental wellbeing affects the family. Interventions and treatment will also be explored in relation to mental health issues in children.
The module is delivered in a blended approach, with five fortnightly face-to-face teaching sessions and the remainder of learning online. You'll be expected to attend all face-to-face teaching sessions.
You'll submit a summative assessment in the form of a 3,000-word essay.
Our module will suit health care professionals working in a relevant field.
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
