Why Study Child Psychology?

Child psychology is a fascinating field, which focuses on the development of children throughout a variety of developmental stages.  From infanthood through to adolescence and beyond, innumerable factors influence the people we become and the lives we go on to lead.  Those who work in child psychology provide essential support to families with children of all ages, contributing to their strong and healthy development.  An advanced understanding of child psychology can prove invaluable in any childcare setting whatsoever.  As demand for the services of talented professionals continues to grow worldwide, employment prospects for capable candidates are limitless in scope.

Our exclusive child psychology online programs are designed specifically for home study, with no deadlines or entry criteria to worry about.  Course content is distributed across four engaging modules as follows:

What is Child Psychology?

Candidates are first introduced to the concept of child psychology, examining the profession and the responsibilities of the qualified child psychologist.  A number of key childhood developmental stages are also discussed in-depth.

Bonding and attachment in children

The second course module focuses on attachment theory, discussing how and why children form attachments with those around them at different stages.  The benefits and potential challenges associated with these attachments are also explored.

Effects of breakdown in Attachment

Continuing the investigation of attachment theory, the following module shifts focus to the potential consequences of attachment breakdowns. Key subtopics covered include the effects of bereavement during childhood, how foster care can affect a child’s development and more.

Development of Children's Personality

The course concludes with a fascinating exploration of personality development in children.  Candidates learn how and why different children develop different personalities, exploring character development and associated challenges.
