Course detailsChild psychology, Certificate discusses various methods, concepts and theories used by renowned psychologists to develop real understanding of the world of children. Study of child psychology is very important for numerous reasons. Not only it helps parents to have better understanding of their children but proper discipline, teaching and communication styles are also based on the true understating of the childhood psychology that changes and develops with time. Children who are raised under adverse circumstances or face traumatic situations are badly affected by these circumstances and these events leave long term affects on their personalities This is because children do not cope up with situations as adults do because they do not have same emotional or reasoning skills and they do not process information in the same way as we do.
The study of child psychology therefore gives better understating about children and their behaviours and we can help children to become well adjusted adults who are able to live productive life. We can interact with children in ways that are more appropriate for their development. So the awareness of child psychology is not only important for parents but for all individual working with children in any capacity, as a teacher, teaching assistant, a care worker or child minder.
