“Northern College will be offering a new Child and Adolescent Mental Health certificate program starting this fall. This ministry approved certificate program will be offered online through blended delivery.
Through the Child and Adolescent Mental Health certificate program, individuals will study various emotional and psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents including characteristics, treatments and causal factors. While studying how to use effective intervention strategies to manage aggressive behavior, students will learn how to apply evidence-based intervention techniques when dealing with individuals with a variety of identifications. This program will teach individuals various approaches to working collaboratively with children and adolescents who are taking psychotropic medications, their family and other community agencies. Some of the courses include Behaviour and Drugs, Building Family Support, Crisis and Behaviour Interventions and Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorders.
This flexible program is designed for those who are currently working or those who are completing their studies with the intent to work with children and adolescents. “There is a growing need for professional development opportunities focusing on child and youth mental health,” says Fred Gibbons, President of Northern College. “Gaining specific knowledge centered on the mental health needs of this population can allow individuals to specialize in their field. Those working in special education, social and community services and even health care may benefit professionally and personally by enhancing their understanding of child and adolescent mental health issues.”
This program is offered in a modular format. There are 12 modules in total and individuals can take the entire suite to attain the certificate or complete the modules that best suit their needs. This format allows learners to complement their existing academic and vocational experience and removes barriers for those residing in remote communities. “Accessible education is a cornerstone of the Northern College philosophy. We are committed to providing learners with the greatest possible flexibility and choice in shaping their academic experience with us,” says Gibbons.
This program is the result of partnership between Northern College and Student Support Leadership (SSL) Cluster #14. Student Support Leadership is an initiative of the government of Ontario which encourages collaboration among school boards and authorities, child and family agencies, public health, and allied agencies in order to support students. “The certificate in Child and Adolescent Mental Health was developed to meet a need expressed by a number of our cluster members and organizations,” says Colin Vickers, SSL Cluster #14 Lead. “While this began as a project for northern Ontario, we hope that there will be participation from across the province and beyond.”
