talk to them as if they are mini adults, and surly if your counselling them you have had the training i did this for four years myself (counselling for children) you will know how to help
#2
If you counselling kids then you really should have training or you could end up causing more damage than good

Thats exactly what i thought, with no training you shouldn't really be anywhere near kids in this role, depending on the type of job it is. Sorry to be blunt, but you can do more harm than good if you don't know what to do.

what you have getting this job with no qualifications and know training
theese kids need help not you confusing them evan more if you dont know what you arre doing
#your employer must give you training before you get to work with children
#9
Please tell us you do have the relevant qualifications really!?
#10
What age are the kids?

Its best to work through things with toys for younger kids, because they dont see it as scary or if they 'shouldnt be telling you something' they dont realise they are, it just comes out in what they are doing with the toys and you can then talk things through using the toys

To add, as i should have, i have had twenty years experience in adult mental health, specialist nurse consultant in peri-natel health. I just have not had much experience with children, apart from my own. the job is to look at ways of preventing ill health.

surely you would have still needed a child counselling qualification :?

I wouldn't be happy allowing a child near you without evidence

perinatal, you mean?

I'm feeling a little anxious that someone would ask this kind of question on an internet site.

sounds a bit strange to me because i was under the impression to work with children in this sort of work you need proper training in childrens issues and not being harsh it dont seem to me that you are and you could do my harm then good

When I did my degree in paediatric nursing, I did one year general, 2 year paediatric. The branches were, child, adult, or adult mental health.
Trained adult nurses or adult mental health nurses could not just switch and work with children without completing the full 2 years of that branch.
Any kind of antenatal or as you call it peri natal treatment is actually adult branch and has nothing to do with children at all, it'a about the woman. Adult branch can do a year on top to qualify as midwives, no other branch can do this.
I find it bizarre and very scary you have been given a job with children when you are not trained in it. Both from a personal view (my son is under child psychologists with autism) and from a professional one. Very, very, worrying indeed.


I don't believe this to be a true request from the OP

As a foster mum, I had to have training for almost a year as I foster disabled children and specific training to deal with children with disabilities.

My little foster son has autism so it was necessary for me to know how to deal with his traits.....although I find him the perfect child :) (compared to my nephews lol)
