Understanding and Nurturing Troubled Children Course Bundle


Course bundle overview

This 20-hour online course bundle provides an accessible introduction to how and why children develop as they do – drawing on cutting-edge neurobiological science, developmental theories and clinical ideas to unpack the most significant influences on the developing child, and explore key developmental stages.

Once you’ve taken this course, you’ll be able to apply the learning directly to your work with children and families – drawing on a deeper understanding of the factors that can affect how children behave, think and feel, in order to provide them with the support they need.

“By understanding why a child presents as they do, we can become less judgemental, more empathic and so more able to offer them the help that they need.” – Dr Graham Music, Course Lead


This course bundle will allow you to:

  • Explore new science about the brain and nervous system, as well as key child development theories, such as attachment theory
  • Make sense of children’s behaviours and mental states by taking into account their family background, culture, biological inheritance and current contexts
  • Better understand the effects of adverse experiences, such as trauma, neglect and abuse, and how positive experiences can build resilience
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of good relationships for emotional wellbeing, health, psychological growth, and recovery from emotional difficulties
  • Apply new knowledge and skills to your own work, through exploring authentic case studies and reflecting on your learning and experiences.
