More details about the program


Learn how childhood trauma impacts a child’s beliefs, behaviour, and development We know half of all mental health conditions emerge before age fourteen, but there’s a need for a greater understanding of young people’s mental wellbeing. On this course, you’ll improve your understanding of how early adverse experiences can impact a young person’s mental health. You’ll learn from world leaders in child development and hear from educators in disciplines like neuroscience and educational psychology. Using evidence-based research, you’ll examine the different ways childhood trauma can influence an individual’s psychological state, educational outcomes and social difficulties. This course is designed for anyone who has an interest in learning about the impact of childhood abuse and neglect on mental wellbeing, as well as child development and psychopathology. The course will be of particular use to those who work with or care for children who have experienced maltreatment, such as parents and carers, teachers, and social workers. You do not need to be a professional or have formal education in child development or psychology. Although the course is suitable for any background or career stage, students and professionals in any healthcare profession will benefit from the insights shared by the course experts.
