Family Interventions Training

APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis

Course 4: Family Interventions.

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' courses, in whichever order is best for you.)

By helping the client's family, you not only help and empower them but you potentially provide the client with an environment which is conducive to reducing their distress, improving their quality of life, and speeding their recovery. It was to help professionals to bring about this win:win phenomenon that we developed this course.

Executive Summary:

Current evidence is that the "education and support of families" is an effective intervention for psychosis. This should come as little surprise: by delivering this we stand the chance of generating an environment that is as conducive as possible to recovery.

Moreover, having a family member who has psychosis is so distressing and demanding that the family is a legitimate focus of attention in and of itself. Simply to tell them that it is unhelpful to 'express negative emotion' is so un-empathic as to make it counterproductive. There is much more to understanding family reaction and providing relevant support than this, and this forms the aim of the course.
