Overview

The Graduate Certificate in Child Well-being and Protection is designed to enhance the knowledge and practical skills of social workers and other professionals who work with children and adolescents, especially in the child protection area.

Students will gain knowledge about the many influences upon children's safety and wellbeing, and the impact of and children's responses to major life events and transitions.

Throughout the course, the focus will be the perspective of children and young people, with students acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to work effectively with this client group, to interview children, and to consider the child's perspective (to the extent consistent with the child's age, maturity and circumstances) in planning therapeutic interventions. 

Child protection legislation and research around Australian child protection practices will be emphasised.
