The APT Diploma for Working in Secure Psychiatric and Forensic Settings provides 120 hours of focused training and is APT- accredited (The Association for Psychological Therapies). We bring the training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend.
The APT Diploma for Working in Secure Psychiatric and Forensic Settings provides 120 hours of training in eight modules over 12 months. We bring all the modules to you for a fixed fee, to ensure you get a supportive group addressing the same material.
The diploma comprises 20 days of training made up from your 8 chosen modules below. Choose four 3-day modules and four 2-day modules. Everybody on the course attends the same modules.
After every module students are expected to sit an exam. To be awarded the diploma, students must attend at least 7 of the live taught modules, and pass at least 7 of the online exams.
To obtain a distinction, students must submit and pass a written case study (3,000 - 4,000 words) describing the work based application of the approach they have studied in that module.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Diploma in Working with Psychosis, and receive a certificate to this effect and accreditation which gains you access to the resources associated with the course.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation to use the resources lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher and 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.

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.
