Overview

Have you seen a child being too aggressive – hitting and hurting other children, destroying things etc..? Have you seen a boy/girl being too timid, withdrawn, aloof, isolated? Have you seen an adolescent high school student being reckless, indulge in risk behaviours – smoking, drug and alcohol abuse? All of us have seen and have wondered why? Why the children are like this? How to set right these children? What should be done to avoid these problem behaviours? How to identify and address these behaviours and intervene to mainstream them? The students need not be exceptional to encounter problems in school. They face a diverse array of problems and challenges as they progress through school years which manifests itself through these behaviors. We know that the children are an asset for a country since they are the future nation builders and their health and wellbeing always remains as a primary concern. Children of elementary school, middle school and high school spend the active part of their day at school and hence, school plays a very important role in moulding the personality which endures through thoughts, feelings and behaviours of the students.

    The entire course module is very effectively organized and presented. We came to know a lot of hidden information. Now we can be more cautious while imparting teaching. We can handle the students more efficiently and effectively. The assessment questions are of high quality and to answer them one has to go through the topics very seriously. How ever it would be an added advantage if we are provided with some sample questions for the final examination.
    Warm Regards ma'am,

    School counseling course was really very helpful. For a teacher like me, it helps to get a broader understanding of the child. I think I can guide a child who faces problem related to career, behavioural or personal issues rather that using any kind of punishment. It actually helps me to look from a different perspective.
    I really feel grateful, for giving me this opportunity to learn the course online with clear explanation and study notes.
    Thankyou and regards

And also teach theories and approaches which we have to apply in doing counseling of the student (s). study material is also very helpful in preparing for exams. The way of teaching & explaining concepts by Professor is really good and easy for understanding. I give 5 Star for this course. Thank you SWAYAM for providing this course for us with a minimal price. According to me, ( Psychology Student) everyone should have to do this course, because I feel, Knowledge of Child/ Children behaviour is useful in our personal life also. It's helps in parenting.

    Thank you very much
