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 overview of the role of the BACP Ethical Framework in underpinning effective and accountable counselling with children and young people. The session explores what is meant by the term 'ethics' and looks at a range of different approaches to resolving difficult issues about what is right or wrong. It examines the contribution made to ethical practice by the BACP Ethical Framework, and the ways in which this approach needs to be adapted to meet the needs of counsellors working with children and young people. The session then builds on this to identify some of the main factors which counsellors will need to bear in mind when making difficult decisions, and sources of professional help.

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.
