Why should I take this course?

This micro skills course from NHS Health Education England is aimed at a specialist audience: trainee and practising counsellors. The session provides an introduction to the ways in which the law can impact on the practice of counsellors working with children and young people. The session looks at different ways in which the law can apply to working with this client group, and how this relates to ethics, policy and day-to-day practice. It also looks at different 'levels' of the law, such as Acts of Parliament, case law and codes of practice. Finally, the session looks at some of the main problem areas regarding the law which counsellors may come across, and sets out some of the main sources of help available to work with these issues.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
