In the Well Being Course, students are taught 10 modules over 11 terms, which includes a clinical placement to prepare them for a career in promoting children's and young people's wellbeing. In 3 years, you will become a child therapeutic wellbeing practitioner or, after 4 years, you will be a child therapeutic counsellor.
A Therapeutic Wellbeing Practitioner works through creative and relational methods to promote the overall wellbeing of children, young people, families and communities. This is holistic and child-centred, considering the needs and capabilities of each individual child in the context of their family, school and social environment.
If you would like to make a difference to the lives of children and young people the wellbeing course provides you with information about training and education at IATE in partnership with the University of East London. This approach is humanistic, integrative and relational, informed by therapeutic counselling skills, attachment theory, child development and applied therapeutic thinking. It is creative in considering the child or young person's human potential as an agent of change, collaborating through meaningful activities including: sports, arts, leisure, communications technology and complementary health. It is a multi-disciplinary approach sharing influence from youth work, social work, mental health, therapy and education.
The wellbeing courses are delivered by The Wellbeing Faculty with a team of over twenty tutors who provide quality teaching for students as well as a range of visiting lecturers, writers, researchers and practitioners to inform and inspire.
