Dual Diagnosis Training

APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis

Module 5: Dual Diagnosis - Psychosis and Substance Misuse.

A 3-day course for 6-15 people. 2-day version and refresher courses are also available. (Please note: you can attend one, some, or all of 'APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis' modules, in whichever order is best for you.)

Executive Summary:

Dual diagnosis is generally viewed as a difficult presentation to treat. Frequently the patient may be resistant to the idea of illness, disillusioned with conventional medication, and resigned to 'self-medicating'. Other times, such patients simply cannot see there is a problem. To bring effective help in such a situation is a very skilled task, and the focus of this course.

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course.

Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.

Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

How can I access this training?

Option 1: We come and run the course in your organisation:

We bring this 3-day course to your own organisation for a fixed fee of $6,300 (plus GST/HST, tutor travel and accommodation expenses) and up to 15 people can attend. You can organize as many courses as you need, to cover the numbers you want to.

There is also a 2-day version available at $4,500 (plus GST/HST, tutor travel and accommodation expenses) inclusive for 6-15 delegates.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
