I highly recommend this course to get the creativity of clinicians new to working with younger children flowing!
I found this course highly enjoyable, practical and relevant, with so many good takeaways to apply to my work with children, families and schools!

Psychologist, 1 year experience in child work

It was helpful to see the activities from the book used in vivo. Online was a helpful way of completing some learning in my own time

Psychologist, 2 years' experience in child work

Amazing. The activities and ideas are practical and very easy to apply....I feel I have done the best course. I have already started applying many ideas with the children I work with and excited to apply more.

Occupational Therapist, 2 years’ experience in child work

Fantastic. I could do it at my own pace and repeat parts I wanted to clarify my thinking about. It was really pleasing to realise that as an OT, not a psychologist, that a lot of activities I'm already using could be extended or used in a different way to help children work though some of their tricky feelings, whilst still feeling comfortable that I'm staying within the bounds of my expertise.

I have found this course very accessible and practical which has been great - I have a lot of ideas/activities I am looking forward to putting into practice with clients.
