Below is a list of exciting and effective approaches for getting the best from people. We can bring any of these management training courses to your own organisation for a fixed all-inclusive fee, no matter where you are. All of the training is accredited by APT (The Association for Psychological Therapies), backed by the weight of over 100,000 professionals having attended APT courses since foundation in 1981.
A 3-day course (2-day input on positive management practice also available).
How to manage people positively, assertively and properly.
RAIDing (Reinforce Appropriate, Implode Disruptive) gives a relentlessly positive philosophy for working with extreme behaviour. Already attended by 15,000 professionals, RAIDing is especially relevant to working in secure and semi-secure environments. RAIDing provides a positive approach to be proud of, developing appropriate 'green' behavior so that it simply overwhelms the problem behaviours in question. Importantly though, RAIDing also tells you what to do when problem behavior happens.
A 2-day course.
The course that shows clinicians how to use pre-existing skills to provide effective clinical supervision.
Clinical supervision is a key concept that many people are unclear about. Unclear whether 'supervision' means that you should be ensuring that the supervisee is 'doing it right' or whether you should be providing a sounding board for the supervisee to develop their clinical thinking, or what. This course clarifies it by looking at the current models of supervision, what the professional bodies say about it, and more. The 'more' consists predominantly of learning how to do it, or learning to do it better. The aim is, therefore, that by the end of the 2 days you will both (a) know about clinical supervision and (b) be good at providing it.

If you are a manager it is essential to have a management philosophy that is clear, robust, and effective.
Clear in that you can have it constantly in mind, even in difficult 'spur of the moment' situations; robust in that it stands up in the whole range of situations that worklife throws at you; and effective meaning simply that it works in real life, not just in a book. Managing Difficult Colleagues - and yourself™ provides all of that, and takes it a stage further by including you in the mix. The rationale for this is that people – you included – perform well some days and not so well on other days. For that reason we have to have a philosophy that is 'robust' but we also have to have you performing as well as you can do … consistently.
A 3-day course. (2-day version also available.)
For years, our customers have said they wished APT did a course with this title. Well we do now.
ACT adopts a new strategy that moves away from the 'rational strategies of behavior and thought change' that many people have tried and failed with. Focusing mainly on how people understand and perpetuate their difficulties through language, ACT concentrates on exciting interventions based on metaphor and paradox, with experiential exercises to show how to break free of language traps, overcome common behavioral problems and enhance life satisfaction.
