Short Term Internship & Training in Child and Adolescent Counselling (32 Hours)

This internship aims to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of child and adolescent psychology, covering key developmental stages, common challenges, and effective strategies for promoting mental health and well-being in young individuals. The internship integrates hands-on components like role-plays and interactive sessions, providing participants with the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world scenarios.

Topics Covered:

  • Learning Disabilities:  A learning disability is a neurological condition that affects an individual’s ability to receive, process, store, and respond to information. This condition can interfere with skills such as reading, writing, mathematical calculations, and language comprehension. Examples of common learning disabilities include dyslexia and dyscalculia.
  • Intellectual Disability: Intellectual Disability is a condition of arrested or incomplete development of the mind, which is especially characterized by impairment of skills manifested during the developmental period which contribute to the overall level of intelligence. This session has been designed to gain an in-depth understanding of ID and its manifestations. 
  • Neurodivergence: Neurodivergence refers to natural variations in neurological development, encompassing conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and others. It emphasizes the diversity of neurological differences, challenging the notion of a single “normal” or typical brain. Embracing neurodivergence promotes acceptance and understanding of individuals with unique cognitive profiles, fostering a more inclusive and accommodating society. Through interactive sessions and case studies, participants will gain valuable insights into the same. 
  • Abuse in children: This session would focus on equipping the participants with awareness about abuse in children as well as various laws protecting children against abuse.
  • Play therapy: Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy that utilises play to help children express their emotions, communicate, and resolve psychological challenges. Therapists use toys, games, and creative activities to engage children in a non-directive or directive manner, fostering a safe space for emotional exploration and healing. This approach is particularly effective for children who may find it challenging to articulate their feelings verbally.
