Hello

Intothediploma

The Diploma of Professional Counselling is supported by a number of optional Advanced Study Majors. Advanced Study Majors allow you to study and gain advanced knowledge and skill in the specialised counselling area of your choice.

 

The Advanced Study Major Program involves the completion of one or more optional Advanced Study Majors in addition to the Diploma of Professional Counselling. The Majors provide you with the opportunity to specialise in any of the following highly relevant fields of counselling:

 

The Majors are specifically designed to provide you with a higher level of practical and theoretical knowledge in a specialised field of counselling. You are able to enrol into an Advanced Study Major at the time of your enrolment into the Diploma of Professional Counselling, or at any subsequent time.

 

The advantage of early enrolment in an Advanced Study Major is that studies can be completed concurrently with your Diploma. There is also no limit on the number of Advanced Study Majors you can undertake.

 

The Advanced Study Majors can be completed by either a external or face-to-face mode of study. Studying your ASM via the traditional external option follows a similar process as to completing your studies for the Diploma. Students are sent a workbook and readings for the ASM and submit their assessment for marking.

 

Alternatively, students are also able to complete their ASM by attending a workshop. Many students enjoy the interactive, practical workshops because they are a refreshing change from the traditional external study method and provide the opportunity to meet other students. Students also have the flexibility to change into this mode of study even after selecting the external option.

 

For further information about the Diploma and the ASM Program, please contact your closest Student Support Centre.

Article: Parenting an Adolescent

Published: Edition 71

 

"Youth is not a time of life - it is a state of mind. It is not a matter of red cheeks, red lips and supple knees. It is a temper of the will; a quality of the imagination; vigor of the emotions; it is a freshness of the deep springs of life". Samuel Ullman

 

The transition from a child to early adulthood is an incredibly complex, worrying and yet exciting time for adolescents and those around them including family, teachers and others who are affected by the change in the young person's body image, thinking and behaviours and interactions with people of all ages.

 

Understanding the situation, and the emotional needs and wants of an adolescent child, is essential to handling parenthood in a productive manner. For ill-equipped parents, however, parenting an adolescent can be as puzzling as trying to solve the Hodge Conjecture*.

 

Whatever the case may be, effective communication, commitment and understanding is going to be vital in understanding how to cope with teenagers and how best to support and nurture them. In this article, we will look at some strategies that are conducive to effective parenting.
