Helping People Manage their Anger and Violence is an APT-Accredited 3-day course from one of Canada's leading providers of mental health training. We bring the training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (Refresher course also available.)
Anger is a major problem for those concerned, those around them and the professionals trying to help. It can wreck the enjoyment potential of people's lives, lead to serious relationship break-ups and, in extreme cases, serious criminal offences. Trying to intervene can be frustrating and worrying.
This acclaimed course is based on the only anger-management book on the “Books on Prescription” scheme (UK), namely Overcoming Anger and Irritability (Constable and Robinson) and written by the same author (William Davies). As well as the course workbook every delegate receives a copy of Overcoming Anger and Irritability. The course aims to provide you with the most effective psychological interventions to help angry, irritable and violent people to change.
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.

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.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the Helping People Manage their Anger and Violence course has received.
"This was hands down the best training course I've done. The skills taught will be very useful in dealing with angry clients, but also will be easily re-deployed in other areas as well. The instructor came with loads of relevant experience and case studies which made the whole thing that much more interesting. Fantastic course."
"Best course I have ever attended, will greatly benefit from having learnt about how to overcome and anger and irritability. No criticisms whatsoever."
