'CBT Plus, for Anger and Violence' is a 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas.
It is the only course on this topic that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams/organizations and can be attended face-to-face or online.
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 offenses. 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). 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 and access to the online exam if you wish to uprate your APT accreditation to Level 2.
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 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

"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."
