1. Dementia Awareness: Understanding Dementia

There is a significant lack of readily-available education on dementia for those providing care, be they a family member or in some cases students and practising care givers. This course provides a thorough understanding of all aspects of this complex subject.

Caring for an individual with symptoms of dementia is challenging. It’s even harder if you don’t fully understand the condition. With this in mind, the course shares basic information about the different types of dementia, the causes, and the common risk factors that contribute to its development in an individual.

You will learn how to spot the onset of dementia and how a diagnosis is determined. You will also discover how it damages the brain; what the cognitive, functional, behavioural and emotional changes that can occur are, and what treatments can be used to slow progression.

‘Person-centered care’ brings focus to the needs and preferences of an individual with dementia, in a respectful and responsive way. It also considers the values of the person and their family in all aspects of decision making. You will discover more about this type of care in this course.

To communicate effectively with those who have dementia requires respect, inclusiveness, and a thorough understanding of effective communication strategies. You need to adapt to continue meaningful communication throughout each phase of dementia. The Dementia Awareness Course explains how to do this, along with guidance on how to overcome even the most challenging of communication barriers.

As a caregiver, you need to encompass the role by learning how to manage chronic and intermittent medical conditions, monitor psychological changes, and provide a level of personal care that may be outside of your current comfort zone. You will also have to manage your own, and the sufferer’s family’s, expectations of the care that can be provided. This course guides you through the considerations you must make and how to go about being a carer for a family member.

The symptoms of dementia can leave those with the condition in a vulnerable state. The Dementia Awareness Course outlines how to assess and manage home safety risks, to limit possible hazards, and how to prepare for emergencies.

Loss of social abilities through dementia can leave its sufferers feeling an increased sense of alienation and isolation. It is important to employ meaningful activities that promote physical and mental stimulation, self-expression, and interaction, to bring back a sense of belonging, purpose, normality, and enjoyment. This course guides you through activities that can be used to stimulate the senses and encourage social interaction, and what the positive outcomes of these activities can be.

Due to the nature of dementia, someone with the condition is likely to exhibit some forms of challenging behaviour. The Dementia Awareness Course provides guidance on how to respond to some of the more common behaviours. These include agitation, screaming, wandering, sexual dis-inhibition, and cursing (swearing). This information also provides a basis for you to formulate similar or new strategies for other types of challenging behaviours that you may come across.

Providing care to an individual with dementia involves a network of people, which itself needs support. The course explains the roles of the various people involved and educates on how to help the primary caregiver, especially when this is a family member.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Dementia Awareness Course is aimed at carers of those with dementia, family members, and those looking for a thorough understanding of this complex subject. It is also especially useful to business owners/managers who administer long-term care homes for individuals with dementia.

Some caregivers have little, if any, prior health or dementia education and begin the task of care with little preparation or understanding of what is involved. This course will teach you everything you need to know about dementia and how to best help the sufferers of this condition.

2. Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness: Learn Everything You Need To Know About Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory Processing Disorder describes a difference in the way that some people's senses are processed by the brain. This course provides an in-depth understanding of the condition, including the symptoms and behaviours associated with it, diagnosis, prevalence, history, therapies and interventions, and how you can provide support.

Although awareness has recently increased, it can still be difficult to get a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes it is particularly important to know the symptoms of the condition and the behaviours that present themselves in the young children and adults who suffer from it. The sooner it can be diagnosed, the better, as modifications to the environment can be made and the right support can be put in place before self-esteem and self-confidence issues arise. The course explains the common symptoms that can occur in children and adults and the ways in which these are often misinterpreted.

As getting a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder can sometimes be difficult, this course outlines the routes you may take in gaining help and the obstacles that you may come up against. The history of the condition is also explained, along with what research is being made into the causes of the condition and the differences in how its prevalence is perceived.

Currently, it is Occupational Therapists who are the leaders in the field, as far as intervention and therapy for those afflicted with Sensory Processing Disorder are concerned. The course looks further into this role, with an overview of how they work and what sort of therapies they may be able to offer. If you don’t have access to therapy, or would like advice on how you can be more involved with your child’s condition, the course also provides useful information in how you can provide support at home. Also included, are strategies that educators can implement in the classroom to enable effective learning to those with SPD.

3. Improve Your Memory: Discover techniques that will aid your ability to recall information, in both your academic and everyday life

Whether actively or passively, your memory is something that you use every day. The Improve Your Memory Course teaches you the mechanics behind memory and teaches techniques that will aid your ability to recall information, in both your academic and everyday life.

To begin to improve your memory, you must first understand memory itself. You will discover how memories form, what factors go into their creation, what the various types of memories are and how each type differs. The Improve Your Memory Course also looks at the psychological aspects of memories and the way in which these can shape an individual’s personality.

The course looks at how, through various factors, the human brain can contaminate a memory and create false memories. You will also learn which part of the brain controls managerial functions that rationalise the decisions you make.

In addition to explaining how the brain works and how memories are formed, the Improve Your Memory Course also teaches you about various Memory Principles and how they aid our ability to retain and recollect information. You will learn about Memory Principles such as Repetition, Exaggeration, and Chunking and factors such as Association, Imagination, and Location. Two important factors in improving your memory are given particular attention: visualisation and meditation.

With the foundations laid, the bulk of the course discusses various memory systems and techniques, explaining why and how they work. You will learn how the use of mnemonic devices and even effective note-taking can improve your memory and why the human brain is particularly prone to remembering a good story or song lyrics (often of songs we don’t like). The age old technique of Memory Palaces and the Method of Loci are also explained, along with the Linking Method and Similar Sounding Technique.

The most important technique in the field of mnemonics, the Improve Your Memory Course explains how to use the Number Peg System. This technique may at first seem complex but this course gives you a straightforward explanation that shows you how easy, and most importantly, effective it is. You will be guided through putting the system to use to both practice it and to see how useful it is for yourself. You will also learn how you can apply the techniques you have learned in the course to remember specific things, such as names, places, presentations, passwords, formulas, important dates, daily tasks, scripts and speeches, and words from foreign languages.

In addition to teaching you methods and techniques that help you to improve your memory, the course also explains how to pass what you have learned onto others. You will discover the fundamental rules of learning and how to teach the techniques covered in the course to others, as a Memory Trainer. Even if you don’t wish to make a career of it, teaching others, even friends and family, will help you to concretise your understanding of the topic.

Who would benefit from our Improve Your Memory Online Certificate Course?

The Improve Your Memory Course is perfect for anyone who struggles to remember things or if you would like to make a practical effort to improve your memory – a tool that you use every day.

While this course will be of particular benefit if you are studying, the techniques and methods described can be used in day-to-day life, from recalling what’s on your To Do list and remembering the names of people you have just met, to memorising speeches for presentations and words of foreign languages. Additionally, you can teach what you have learned from the course, in a career as a Memory Trainer.

4. Anxiety Management: Study Anxiety Management Online Course; Learn about Anxiety and the Huge Number of Options Available to Manage it 

The Anxiety Management Online Course will teach you about anxiety and the many methods for managing it, ranging from standard medicine and supplements to CBT and relaxation exercises, all of which have been scientifically proved to lower anxiety. Anxiety affects everyone of us at times, but for some of us, it is more persistent and severe, interfering with our everyday lives.

The Anxiety Management Course takes you through the basics of the subject by answering the question, "What is Anxiety?". You'll be able to recognize the signs and causes of anxiety disorders, comprehend the tests used to get a diagnosis, distinguish between worry and fear, and learn how frequent anxiety disorders are after reading this introduction.

Many drugs and supplements are available to help treat anxiety once it has been diagnosed. You'll learn about prescription drugs, over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, supplements, and herbal therapies, as well as the function of cannabidiol oil in anxiety treatment. CBT is one of the most effective treatments to reduce anxiety (cognitive behavioural therapy). The Anxiety Management Course teaches what anxiety management is, how it works, the components that make it up, and the several types of CBT that are accessible.

While CBT is highly recommended, there are a variety of alternative therapies that can help with anxiety problems. The course goes on how animal therapy, art therapy, exposure therapy, hypnotherapy, massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture, and yoga can all help. Meditation and mindfulness are also covered in greater depth in the Anxiety Management Course, with an explanation of what they are and how they can be used to battle anxiety.

In addition to particular therapies and remedies, the course looks at how making small changes in our daily lives can help us cope with anxiety. We look at exercise and diet, including how they affect anxiety and best practices for using them in anxiety management, as well as other lifestyle factors like sleep, spending time in nature, having a support network, and managing time. You'll also learn about creative writing and journaling, breathing exercises, and guided visualizations, as well as the use of relaxation techniques as tools in anxiety treatment.

5. Neuropsychology: Navigate The Labyrinth That Is The Brain

Navigate the labyrinth of the most complex organ and system ever discovered, the brain. Study the Neuropsychology Course and explore how it is we are able to express and understand emotions, acquire and use language, learn, remember, and plan, and how consciousness and unconscious experiences are shaped by the brain. Build a foundation of biological knowledge, understand the functions of various areas of the brain, and how these relate to developmental disorders and mental health problems, as well as the effects of brain damage.

The course introduces itself by first looking at the wider subject of psychology and the various areas within this, before establishing the aims of neuropsychology. To give the subject context you are provided with its history, how it is applied in everyday settings, and the questions it sets out to answer.

You don’t need an encyclopaedic knowledge of the brain’s anatomy to study the concepts of neuropsychology. However, a good grasp of some terminology and how the various systems of the brain function both independently and together will aid you in understanding the research put forward by neuropsychologists. To ensure you have the information you need, the Neuropsychology Course guides you through the basics of brain anatomy and biological functions associated with the human brain and nervous system. You’ll explore the major areas of the brain and how different cell types transmit signals to one another.

To expand their knowledge of the how the human brain and nervous systems work, neuropsychologists use various research methods and technologies to collect data, including the use of Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computer Tomography (CT), and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The course covers how each of these methods is used to provide reliable results and the importance of using group, rather than individual, case studies. You’ll also look at the topic of ethics, including the use of animals in research.

A large and consistent question that has been around since the inception of psychology, is that of the relationship between brain and mind or brain and the “soul”. How the physical can produce the experience of consciousness and whether the brain and mind are distinct from one another. The Neuropsychology Course discusses how the brain generates conscious states, including sleep, hypnosis, stupor and coma, and goes even further by looking at how neuropsychology views free will and the possible existence of a human soul.

Our perception of the world comes about by our brain’s ability to receive sensory input from our five main senses. You’ll learn how each of the sense organs works to receive input and how the brain makes sense of this external stimuli to provide us with the experience of sound, taste, smell, etc. In addition to looking at how the brain usually functions you’ll also learn how damage to the brain can disrupt this process, with phantom limb syndrome and synaesthesia covered extensively.

Humans have a uniquely complex capacity for language. You’ll discover how we develop the ability to speak and process language – looking at the stages we go through, from childhood to adulthood, and how some people become bilingual. The Neuropsychology Course will teach you about disorders of language, such as agraphia and dyslexia, and how brain damage can affect language usage.

The purposes and various types of memory are discussed in the course, including an analysis of which parts of the brain are responsible for the storage and retrieval of memories. You’ll be exposed to the way memory is studied, what happens when particular parts of the brain are damaged, and an explanation of confabulation.

The course addresses mental health problems – looking at what they are and the consensus in Western medicine regarding their causes and treatment. You’ll explore the explanations, risk factors and treatments of the following disorders: depression, anxiety (including phobia), schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

Emotions are a fundamental part of human experience. The Neuropsychology Course discusses emotional processing and expressions, including whether this differs between cultures and whether facial expressions are something that are learned or hardwired from birth. You’ll also explore the areas of the brain that are responsible for emotion production and regulation and how brain damage and dysfunction can cause difficulties in this and in understanding emotion.

    About This Course

    Get Dementia Awareness, Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness, and Improve Your Memory in this Bundle

    1. Dementia Awareness: Understanding Dementia

    There is a significant lack of readily-available education on dementia for those providing care, be they a family member or in some cases students and practising care givers. This course provides a thorough understanding of all aspects of this complex subject.

    Caring for an individual with symptoms of dementia is challenging. It’s even harder if you don’t fully understand the condition. With this in mind, the course shares basic information about the different types of dementia, the causes, and the common risk factors that contribute to its development in an individual.

    You will learn how to spot the onset of dementia and how a diagnosis is determined. You will also discover how it damages the brain; what the cognitive, functional, behavioural and emotional changes that can occur are, and what treatments can be used to slow progression.

    ‘Person-centered care’ brings focus to the needs and preferences of an individual with dementia, in a respectful and responsive way. It also considers the values of the person and their family in all aspects of decision making. You will discover more about this type of care in this course.

    To communicate effectively with those who have dementia requires respect, inclusiveness, and a thorough understanding of effective communication strategies. You need to adapt to continue meaningful communication throughout each phase of dementia. The Dementia Awareness Course explains how to do this, along with guidance on how to overcome even the most challenging of communication barriers.

    As a caregiver, you need to encompass the role by learning how to manage chronic and intermittent medical conditions, monitor psychological changes, and provide a level of personal care that may be outside of your current comfort zone. You will also have to manage your own, and the sufferer’s family’s, expectations of the care that can be provided. This course guides you through the considerations you must make and how to go about being a carer for a family member.

    The symptoms of dementia can leave those with the condition in a vulnerable state. The Dementia Awareness Course outlines how to assess and manage home safety risks, to limit possible hazards, and how to prepare for emergencies.

    Loss of social abilities through dementia can leave its sufferers feeling an increased sense of alienation and isolation. It is important to employ meaningful activities that promote physical and mental stimulation, self-expression, and interaction, to bring back a sense of belonging, purpose, normality, and enjoyment. This course guides you through activities that can be used to stimulate the senses and encourage social interaction, and what the positive outcomes of these activities can be.

    Due to the nature of dementia, someone with the condition is likely to exhibit some forms of challenging behaviour. The Dementia Awareness Course provides guidance on how to respond to some of the more common behaviours. These include agitation, screaming, wandering, sexual dis-inhibition, and cursing (swearing). This information also provides a basis for you to formulate similar or new strategies for other types of challenging behaviours that you may come across.

    Providing care to an individual with dementia involves a network of people, which itself needs support. The course explains the roles of the various people involved and educates on how to help the primary caregiver, especially when this is a family member.

    Who would benefit from the course?

    The Dementia Awareness Course is aimed at carers of those with dementia, family members, and those looking for a thorough understanding of this complex subject. It is also especially useful to business owners/managers who administer long-term care homes for individuals with dementia.

    Some caregivers have little, if any, prior health or dementia education and begin the task of care with little preparation or understanding of what is involved. This course will teach you everything you need to know about dementia and how to best help the sufferers of this condition.

    2. Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness: Learn Everything You Need To Know About Sensory Processing Disorder

    Sensory Processing Disorder describes a difference in the way that some people's senses are processed by the brain. This course provides an in-depth understanding of the condition, including the symptoms and behaviours associated with it, diagnosis, prevalence, history, therapies and interventions, and how you can provide support.

    Although awareness has recently increased, it can still be difficult to get a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes it is particularly important to know the symptoms of the condition and the behaviours that present themselves in the young children and adults who suffer from it. The sooner it can be diagnosed, the better, as modifications to the environment can be made and the right support can be put in place before self-esteem and self-confidence issues arise. The course explains the common symptoms that can occur in children and adults and the ways in which these are often misinterpreted.

    As getting a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder can sometimes be difficult, this course outlines the routes you may take in gaining help and the obstacles that you may come up against. The history of the condition is also explained, along with what research is being made into the causes of the condition and the differences in how its prevalence is perceived.

    Currently, it is Occupational Therapists who are the leaders in the field, as far as intervention and therapy for those afflicted with Sensory Processing Disorder are concerned. The course looks further into this role, with an overview of how they work and what sort of therapies they may be able to offer. If you don’t have access to therapy, or would like advice on how you can be more involved with your child’s condition, the course also provides useful information in how you can provide support at home. Also included, are strategies that educators can implement in the classroom to enable effective learning to those with SPD.

    3. Improve Your Memory: Discover techniques that will aid your ability to recall information, in both your academic and everyday life

    Whether actively or passively, your memory is something that you use every day. The Improve Your Memory Course teaches you the mechanics behind memory and teaches techniques that will aid your ability to recall information, in both your academic and everyday life.

    To begin to improve your memory, you must first understand memory itself. You will discover how memories form, what factors go into their creation, what the various types of memories are and how each type differs. The Improve Your Memory Course also looks at the psychological aspects of memories and the way in which these can shape an individual’s personality.

    The course looks at how, through various factors, the human brain can contaminate a memory and create false memories. You will also learn which part of the brain controls managerial functions that rationalise the decisions you make.

    In addition to explaining how the brain works and how memories are formed, the Improve Your Memory Course also teaches you about various Memory Principles and how they aid our ability to retain and recollect information. You will learn about Memory Principles such as Repetition, Exaggeration, and Chunking and factors such as Association, Imagination, and Location. Two important factors in improving your memory are given particular attention: visualisation and meditation.

    With the foundations laid, the bulk of the course discusses various memory systems and techniques, explaining why and how they work. You will learn how the use of mnemonic devices and even effective note-taking can improve your memory and why the human brain is particularly prone to remembering a good story or song lyrics (often of songs we don’t like). The age old technique of Memory Palaces and the Method of Loci are also explained, along with the Linking Method and Similar Sounding Technique.

    The most important technique in the field of mnemonics, the Improve Your Memory Course explains how to use the Number Peg System. This technique may at first seem complex but this course gives you a straightforward explanation that shows you how easy, and most importantly, effective it is. You will be guided through putting the system to use to both practice it and to see how useful it is for yourself. You will also learn how you can apply the techniques you have learned in the course to remember specific things, such as names, places, presentations, passwords, formulas, important dates, daily tasks, scripts and speeches, and words from foreign languages.

    In addition to teaching you methods and techniques that help you to improve your memory, the course also explains how to pass what you have learned onto others. You will discover the fundamental rules of learning and how to teach the techniques covered in the course to others, as a Memory Trainer. Even if you don’t wish to make a career of it, teaching others, even friends and family, will help you to concretise your understanding of the topic.

    Who would benefit from our Improve Your Memory Online Certificate Course?

    The Improve Your Memory Course is perfect for anyone who struggles to remember things or if you would like to make a practical effort to improve your memory – a tool that you use every day.

    While this course will be of particular benefit if you are studying, the techniques and methods described can be used in day-to-day life, from recalling what’s on your To Do list and remembering the names of people you have just met, to memorising speeches for presentations and words of foreign languages. Additionally, you can teach what you have learned from the course, in a career as a Memory Trainer.

    4. Anxiety Management: Study Anxiety Management Online Course; Learn about Anxiety and the Huge Number of Options Available to Manage it 

    The Anxiety Management Online Course will teach you about anxiety and the many methods for managing it, ranging from standard medicine and supplements to CBT and relaxation exercises, all of which have been scientifically proved to lower anxiety. Anxiety affects everyone of us at times, but for some of us, it is more persistent and severe, interfering with our everyday lives.

    The Anxiety Management Course takes you through the basics of the subject by answering the question, "What is Anxiety?". You'll be able to recognize the signs and causes of anxiety disorders, comprehend the tests used to get a diagnosis, distinguish between worry and fear, and learn how frequent anxiety disorders are after reading this introduction.

    Many drugs and supplements are available to help treat anxiety once it has been diagnosed. You'll learn about prescription drugs, over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, supplements, and herbal therapies, as well as the function of cannabidiol oil in anxiety treatment. CBT is one of the most effective treatments to reduce anxiety (cognitive behavioural therapy). The Anxiety Management Course teaches what anxiety management is, how it works, the components that make it up, and the several types of CBT that are accessible.

    While CBT is highly recommended, there are a variety of alternative therapies that can help with anxiety problems. The course goes on how animal therapy, art therapy, exposure therapy, hypnotherapy, massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture, and yoga can all help. Meditation and mindfulness are also covered in greater depth in the Anxiety Management Course, with an explanation of what they are and how they can be used to battle anxiety.

    In addition to particular therapies and remedies, the course looks at how making small changes in our daily lives can help us cope with anxiety. We look at exercise and diet, including how they affect anxiety and best practices for using them in anxiety management, as well as other lifestyle factors like sleep, spending time in nature, having a support network, and managing time. You'll also learn about creative writing and journaling, breathing exercises, and guided visualizations, as well as the use of relaxation techniques as tools in anxiety treatment.

    5. Neuropsychology: Navigate The Labyrinth That Is The Brain

    Navigate the labyrinth of the most complex organ and system ever discovered, the brain. Study the Neuropsychology Course and explore how it is we are able to express and understand emotions, acquire and use language, learn, remember, and plan, and how consciousness and unconscious experiences are shaped by the brain. Build a foundation of biological knowledge, understand the functions of various areas of the brain, and how these relate to developmental disorders and mental health problems, as well as the effects of brain damage.

    The course introduces itself by first looking at the wider subject of psychology and the various areas within this, before establishing the aims of neuropsychology. To give the subject context you are provided with its history, how it is applied in everyday settings, and the questions it sets out to answer.

    You don’t need an encyclopaedic knowledge of the brain’s anatomy to study the concepts of neuropsychology. However, a good grasp of some terminology and how the various systems of the brain function both independently and together will aid you in understanding the research put forward by neuropsychologists. To ensure you have the information you need, the Neuropsychology Course guides you through the basics of brain anatomy and biological functions associated with the human brain and nervous system. You’ll explore the major areas of the brain and how different cell types transmit signals to one another.

    To expand their knowledge of the how the human brain and nervous systems work, neuropsychologists use various research methods and technologies to collect data, including the use of Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computer Tomography (CT), and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The course covers how each of these methods is used to provide reliable results and the importance of using group, rather than individual, case studies. You’ll also look at the topic of ethics, including the use of animals in research.

    A large and consistent question that has been around since the inception of psychology, is that of the relationship between brain and mind or brain and the “soul”. How the physical can produce the experience of consciousness and whether the brain and mind are distinct from one another. The Neuropsychology Course discusses how the brain generates conscious states, including sleep, hypnosis, stupor and coma, and goes even further by looking at how neuropsychology views free will and the possible existence of a human soul.

    Our perception of the world comes about by our brain’s ability to receive sensory input from our five main senses. You’ll learn how each of the sense organs works to receive input and how the brain makes sense of this external stimuli to provide us with the experience of sound, taste, smell, etc. In addition to looking at how the brain usually functions you’ll also learn how damage to the brain can disrupt this process, with phantom limb syndrome and synaesthesia covered extensively.

    Humans have a uniquely complex capacity for language. You’ll discover how we develop the ability to speak and process language – looking at the stages we go through, from childhood to adulthood, and how some people become bilingual. The Neuropsychology Course will teach you about disorders of language, such as agraphia and dyslexia, and how brain damage can affect language usage.

    The purposes and various types of memory are discussed in the course, including an analysis of which parts of the brain are responsible for the storage and retrieval of memories. You’ll be exposed to the way memory is studied, what happens when particular parts of the brain are damaged, and an explanation of confabulation.

    The course addresses mental health problems – looking at what they are and the consensus in Western medicine regarding their causes and treatment. You’ll explore the explanations, risk factors and treatments of the following disorders: depression, anxiety (including phobia), schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

    Emotions are a fundamental part of human experience. The Neuropsychology Course discusses emotional processing and expressions, including whether this differs between cultures and whether facial expressions are something that are learned or hardwired from birth. You’ll also explore the areas of the brain that are responsible for emotion production and regulation and how brain damage and dysfunction can cause difficulties in this and in understanding emotion.
