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. It provides an introduction to cultural competence and its importance in counselling children and young people. It invites learners to reflect on key aspects of their own culture, and introduces frameworks that describe how cultural identities are formed. This session also highlights some of the ways in which stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination can impact on the lives of young people, and emphasises the importance of acknowledging difference within the counselling room. This session provides tools to enable continuing reflective practice in this area.
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.
