1. Animal Assisted Therapy: Discover That Animals Make Great Therapists

The Animal Assisted Therapy course discusses this further: giving information on the effectiveness of animals on human mental, physical and psychological health through Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapies (AAT).

While the roles often merge ‘Animal Assistants’ and ‘Therapy Animals’ offer different functions to humans. The Animal Assisted Therapy Course discusses these differences and also how they crossover, whilst explaining what specific animals can offer in terms of assistance.

Students will discover that animals make great therapists for a number of conditions and for a number of reasons. You will learn how they can aid mental health issues, and how these mental health conditions arise in the first instance.

As humans we have certain needs that must be met for us to be healthy, the absence of which can lead us away from happiness and health, and into mental ill health, which often leads to physical sickness. We discuss the scientific findings that link mental well-being to the presence of animals, detailing exactly animals can do for our health, both physical and mental.

2. Play Therapy: Learn To Become A Successful Play Therapist

Whether you are interested in building your own play therapy business, have a background in psychology, counselling or education and would like to work towards gaining a licence in this area, or are a parent whose child is about to undergo, or who already is undergoing play therapy, and you would like to understand it better, the Play Therapy Course is for you.

Many people who are working in the field of mental health or who have received special training about dealing with children have researched extensively and discovered that development and learning are best brought about as a result of play.

The purpose of play therapy is to help children who have some kind of social and emotional skills missing, learn the adaptive behaviours that are needed to survive socially in today’s world. Furthermore, this therapy technique can also be used to provide children with insight about the problems that they are facing and help them in finding various solutions to these problems. Play therapy is also known to promote cognitive development within the minds of children.

In most cases, it is hoped that children will, as a result of play therapy, learn the different ways in which they can communicate with other people and express their feelings. Furthermore, the therapy technique is also designed to help children in modifying or correcting their behaviour, learn various problem-solving skills that are essential at their stage of development and help them learn how they can and should relate to other people.

To become a play therapist, you need to understand the benefits of its use over other types of therapies and how you can help children with their specific problems. We will show you how you can progress in a career in this area, and what you’ll learn from this course.

The Play Therapy Course is where you will learn all the types of play therapies that are used, such as sensory and embodiment play therapy, dramatic roleplaying, art and crafts, storytelling, sand-pits, and mosaics, and the techniques and applications of each. Also covered is information on how to set up a suitable environment for play therapy.

Students will learn about the psychology behind self-esteem and self-esteem from a child’s perspective. The course outlines how you can use play therapy to improve a child’s self-esteem.

Many of the clients receive will have suffered some sort of trauma. We explain how trauma works, the symptoms, and the consequences of going through trauma. You will then learn how play therapy can help a child overcome the obstacles presented by trauma, and enable students to understand and empathise with their clients.

The Play Therapy Course guides learners through the explicit dos and don’ts of play therapy. This ensures that the children and their parents get the most out of each session and ensures that you, as the therapist, continue to hone your skills in this area and gain a good reputation, which in turn will help your business to flourish.

We give you real-life case studies, from both the client’s and therapist’s points of view, to give concrete examples of the ‘how’ and ‘why’ play therapy works, as well as showcasing example methods.

Finally, we will outline the next steps for you to take on your journey to becoming a professional play therapist.

3. Positive Psychology: Learn Take A Mindful Or Spiritual Approach To Our Lives

Some of us prefer to take a mindful or spiritual approach to our lives and the problems in it, while others find a practical, logical method works better.

The Positive Psychology Course marries together studies of happiness in both science and nature, to provide students with the knowledge of how to find true happiness and contentment. If you let it, this course will help you to change your life.

The expectations that society puts on us, and the human condition itself, bring about many obstructions in the pursuit of happiness. The Positive Psychology Course explores happiness and the effects modern society have on happiness, as well as how to cope with these environmental factors.

From brain cells to physiology, we discuss the science behind both happiness and sadness. Happiness is about understanding yourself, and a large part of that is based in neuroscience. The course’s second module aids students in understanding the physical, biological changes that occur in our brains on a daily basis, as we feel different things.

Making long term change starts with committing to smaller, more regular changes, which will then make larger changes more accessible, as you will already be well-practiced in changing your mood. Students learn quick consciousness shift/mood lifting techniques, which can be employed to immediately change a person’s mind-set from that of negativity, to positivity.

As an important area to cover when talking about happiness, depression is explored in great detail. The most recent findings on the causes of depressions and how to cope and deal with depression using natural methods, are explored.

The main obstruction when seeking happiness is negative thoughts. We talk about the habit of thinking negatively and how we can cultivate a healthy resilience against this.

The Positive Psychology Course concentrates on understanding our needs and how to meet them, using the PERMA model. Fully broken down and explained this technique ensures resilience and long-term contentment, happiness, and positivity.

There is a universal need for humans to be engaged with something, as it provides curiosity, zest and gratitude in life. This is also linked to an area that is now commonplace in none-medicated mental health care; mindfulness. We discuss each, the link between them, and how they aid positivity and resilience.

As humans we have a need for social and secure relationships, from our first, biological relationships to the relationship with a life partner.The Positive Psychology Course explains the science behind this thinking, and then moves on to teach the final two areas of the PERMA model: meaning and accomplishment.

We will also discuss the practical aspects of setting up and running a happiness focussed business.
